That is one gorgeous bike
would like a different color combo.
A 990 beat with the ugly stick.
Norden... wasn't that the thing that the WW2 bombardier/navigators had to take with them when they ditched from a mortally wounded ship?
Kudos to those that did...
The bike is uber cool too!
Keep the name, bomb the design and start over.
You are correct - the 990 was beat with the ugly stick. But this thread is about the gorgeous Norden 901
i suspect that you're in the minority on this one. as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
It does look like they may have slimed up the tank sides a little which is nice but in the process raised the top of the tank considerably. Looks like it sits about 5" higher than the 790 which will create more of a sit in rather than sit on feel I suspect.
I would have liked the headlight more if it was actually built tough like a true offroad light but sadly appears to be a modernized design element plastic look a like.
In all though, kudos to them for going a different direction from the 790. I'm sure there will be folks that will prefer it and they will sell well. Some folks want a softer bike.
Perhaps a softer and less ugly bike!
I still hate the face of my 790... Like a red headed, buck toothed hillbilly!
Don’t get me wrong... I like / love Vag... But the 790 front is totally over complicated aesthetically.
I always approach quietly and softly from the rear, before I stick my key in.
Never heard that one before...
Some clarifications about the Norden (from the The Norden Association web site)
The Nordic region (ie Norden) is the name of the area in Northern Europe, which consists of the countries Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden and the autonomous regions of Åland (belongs to Finland), the Faroe Islands and Greenland (belongs to Denmark). These five states and three autonomous territories are all members of the Nordic (Norden) Council. Greenland belongs geographically to North America, but is included as the country is an autonomous part of that Denmark. The Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard and the island of Jan Mayen lack autonomy and are instead regular parts of Norway and are thus counted towards the Nordic (Norden) countries .
The Nordic (Norden) countries are bound together by a common history, a similar social system and the Nordic languages. The Nordic languages include Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Icelandic and Faroese.
Geographically, a distinction is sometimes made between the Nordic (Norden) countries and Scandinavia. The term "Nordic" (Norden) encompasses all five countries with associated autonomous territories. Scandinavia includes geographically only Norway and Sweden, as well as the northwestern parts of Finland. However, the word is often used in a cultural sense, and this refers to Denmark, Sweden and Norway, but not Finland.
The Swedish national anthem consists among others of this phrase: ~Yes, I want to live, I want to die in the Norden.
So obviously I want the Husqvarna Norden to be a none soft race bike..
Wikipedia = "Norden is a Scandinavian and German word, directly translated as "The North". It is commonly used to refer to the Nordic countries."
Good name for a bike regardless. Better than Vitpillen.
I was referring to this Norden - the bombsight... also from Wiki...
They like that approach as long as you whisper
I don't think the tank is any higher at the top. Other than the green stripe, the seat appears to be the same as the 790.
That is fukin funny ass shit, will be smiling all day..... always approach the vag quietly and softly from the rear, before I stick my key in.
The 901 is odd looking for sure but its like ya keep looking and it grows on you.... a little.
From the photos sure looks like it weighs about as much as a tank tho.
I can see the similarity to the 990 in there a bit.
If the bike is named after that bombsight I actually will be quite happy
But then again I belive that a brilliant technical device like that also should be honored with a race bike and nothing less..
When I come to think of it everything should be honored with a race bike...
790/890/901 what ever Super Light Enduro
Nice looking and very interesting that one is.
Not a belly button everyone has one machine.
Very interested to see the mix of opinions. As soon as I saw it was all over it. Perhaps because it’s of the style of rally bikes.
Beautiful aesthetics in my opinion.
Yeah, it’s no looker but probably the brightest stock headlight I’ve seen on a motorcycle.
