We review the 2023 Husqvarna Norden 901 Expedition, a more off-road and touring ready variant of the Husqvarna Norden 901 adventure bike that was introduced last year.

The Norden 901 Expedition features up-spec WP Xplor suspension (the standard model has WP Apex suspension), a 36-liter-capacity set of side bags, and a windscreen. Several optional features and accessories for the Norden are standard on the Expedition, including the Explorer ride mode, a beefier skid plate, heated grips and seat, a centerstand, and Bluetooth connectivity for infotainment and navigation. It’s priced at $15,799, a $1,300 premium over the Norden 901.

We spent two days flogging the 2023 Husqvarna Norden 901 Expedition on- and off-road in South Africa at the global press launch. Check out the video for our impressions, and read our First Ride Review here.
