Husqvarna Norden 901 Gets Upgraded Tech & New Graphics For 2024

The Swedish-brand's Adventurer receives updates and a fresh look for the new year.

Published on 10.19.2023

Husqvarna has unleashed a refreshed Norden 901 for 2024 to join the up-spec’d Norden Expedition released earlier this year. The new tweaks are minor but include technical and rider safety enhancements fans of the Swedish brand’s adventurer will appreciate. 

One notable revision for the new year is to the lean-angle sensitive TC — called Cornering Motorcycle Traction Control (CMTC) by the manufacturer. The system now offers 10 different levels of rear wheel slip control, which can be selected when the optional Explorer Mode is engaged. This feature boosts the versatility of the bike allowing a wider range of riders to find a traction sweet spot that suits their skill level. Experienced riders can enjoy drifting through turns in the lower settings, while newer riders will benefit from additional traction when negotiating technical corners and unpredictable terrain using the higher settings.

Rounding out the new features found on the 2024 Norden 901 are a new USB port, a revised exhaust to meet Euro 5+ regulations, and Hazard Warning lights, which can be quickly switched on in the event of an emergency. The whole package is wrapped in new gray and yellow graphics that accentuate its neo-retro look and complement its signature round headlight.

The Norden also boasts a light steel trellis frame, WP APEX suspension with 8.7″ of suspension travel in front and 8.5″ in the rear, 21″/18″ tubeless spoke wheels, Bosch Cornering ABS, Power Assist Slipper Clutch (PASC), and multiple ride modes.

Hope they improve availability, esp. Expedition, none to be found in Canada!

This article is completely wrong that Euro 5+ is only an incremental change in emissions requirements. That may be true in terms of the pollution requirements, like NOx, but Euro 5+ will be one of the biggest and most frustrating changes ever for motorcyclists. The reason is that 5+ brings motorcycles up to the same requirement as cars for continuous sensor and system checking, including cat functionality. In other words, say goodbye to any emissions system mods or removals. Also say goodbye replacing your exhaust if it has a catalyst in it. Also say goodbye to not worrying about constant repairs to malfunctioning sensors, leaky evap canisters, O2 sensor faults, etc. This is an entirely new ballgame for motorcyclists, especially off road oriented bikes.
