Husqvarna Norden 901 Expedition

Husqvarna Norden 901 Expedition Review (Baujahr 2023)

The upgrade of the Norden 901 with even more off-road and Mongolia airs

The popular Husqvarna Norden 901 has been joined by a sister model with the suffix "Expedition". Nomen est omen: The new Norden 901 Expedition is even more designed for long tours and terrain. It also offers an almost complete equipment package at a reasonable price. Lenny and Dietmar explored how the new expedition travels on a tour through Dithmarschen.

Desert fox on cerebrum: Come on, drive me far and hard...

It looks strong, the new north. The massive engine protection immediately catches the eye and the expedition radiates adventure and wanderlust with every fibre of its existence. That's the way it should be, because after all, there is already the normal Norden 901, with which you can also make long tours. The expedition, however, goes one step further in terms of off-road capability - especially due to its longer suspension travel.

Here are the standard equipment advantages of the Expedition compared to the standard Norden:

- Softbags incl. holder (36 litres)
- higher windshield (unfortunately not adjustable)
- Explorer driving mode (freely selectable even while driving: ABS, wheelie, 9-way traction control)
- Heated grips
-Heated seats
- fat metal engine guard
- Center stand
- high-quality XPLOR chassis from WP
- longer suspension travel and better ground clearance
- Mobile phone connectivity incl. navigation via smartphone app
- Seat height variable 875 or 895 mm (instead of 855 and 875 mm)
 

Dimensions and seat ergonomics of the Husqvarna Norden 901 Expedition
With all these additional features, the surcharge of about 1,000 euros for the expedition tested here seems almost ridiculous. One might assume that all Norden 901 interested parties would choose the expedition - but be careful: you are already sitting very, very high on this travel enduro! This is also due to the super-comfortable, but also quite wide seat.
 
Lennert, with a height of 1.80 m and a crotch bow length of 85 cm, already had his problems with a secure stand at the low seat height of 875 mm. Dietmar has very long legs and felt very good even with the maximum seat height (895 mm), especially of course during the ride. But as I said: Please don't order blindly, but try it out at least once and also try it out. If that's too shaky, then take the standard Norden 901 and upgrade the features you miss compared to the expedition.

That's how relaxed it is to sit on the Husky Expedition. Very good!
