    The strength of experience

    A powerful team helped bring this Norden 901 to reality. A team that has worked together before and featured a great mix of creative minds in design and experience in engineering. Developing this bike through the pandemic was a true testament to the team's incredible strength and efficiency.  

    “During testing, we conducted endurance tests of over 50,000 kms on a number of test bikes, with no issues.”

    “We wanted a high quality bike shaped for long distance riding both on and offroad.”

    Passion for motorcycles

     

    From track to travel

    Excited by the street racing world as a kid, Andreas spent his youth as a hobbyist track racer. Now with a full-time job and young family, he transitioned into more flexible travel-oriented riding. As a passionate and accomplished adventure rider, Andreas is living out his dream leading a product development team focused on travel.

    Bringing it
    all together

    Comfortable, stylish, rugged

    The goal was to squeeze maximum comfort from the bike concept. We also selected a specific suspension spec, which mixes street comfort and offroad handling. In the end, its strength is long distance exploration - meaning range, comfort and all-terrain versatility.

     

    “The Norden 901 has a commanding look. When you walk into the garage, you can't help but stare at it."
