    A spirit for travel

    The twin-cylinder travel-enduro segment perfectly fits the Husqvarna Motorcycles brand in terms of usability and accessibility. The designers did a great job to capture the essence of the brand and its values in this new motorcycle. At first glance, it's clear to see it is targeted at people with a spirit for travel. Those who are as keen to ride to work as they are to explore new horizons - no matter where that road may lead them.

    “We're appealing to those who want to travel with a motorcycle that is dynamically-pleasing yet still accessible.”

    Career highlight


    Living the dream

    Spending many of his teenage years close to Milan, Federico took every opportunity to visit the EICMA bike show. Here he would spend many hours ogling at the very latest products the 2-wheel industry had to offer. In 2019, it was his turn to 'wow' motorcycle enthusiasts with the unveiling of the Norden 901 prototype. The crowd’s reaction was great, but what made it extra special was to do it alongside his childhood hero, Max Biaggi.

    “EICMA is too packed at the weekend, so I would skip school and go during the week.”

    Motorcycling all around

    With two older brothers passionate about motorcycles, Federico was immersed in the world of 2-wheels from a young age. While his brothers’ passion was more for asphalt, offroad riding captured his interest. BMX, dirt bikes and motocross all formed a big part of his youth. However, that mix has found some balance as Husqvarna Motorcycles expands its range into dualsport and street.     


    “I inherited many things from my older brothers, also, thankfully, their passion for motorcycles.”
