MCN ride the Norden 901

I think there’s going to be a lot of interest in this bike when it’s finally released.

Also waiting for the other 890 models KTM are planning to release.

is it me or does it look weird without a beak?

It looks weird without a mahoosive windshield and that round headlight is just so strange.

I hadn’t noticed the beak until you mentioned it so probably didn’t look to weird subconsciously. Now that I look at it, yes it does.

Otherwise, I quite like it but those elements just throw me off…

into a bush round a corner?


I’m sure it’ll be alright on the night…


then again the current KTM 790 is missing a beak as well


With that pointy nose, that looks horrible…

i wouldnt keep that even if you gave to me for free…

Back to the huskie… it does remind me of the old 990 in shape a bit. Maybe that’s why I’m drawn to it.

The 790 has been discontinued, and is being replaced with a new 890 version.

Wow, I think the Norden looks great. Great design and not as big and bulky as a GS/1290A. I could totally imagine doing some light off-road adventure riding on that.

Looking forward to seeing specs, i.e. weight.


So am I. I think for a long range tourer with off road capability then it could potentially be an awesome bike.

I could sell the DRZ for that and still do some green-laning on that plus get what I hope would be a great tourer as well (specs allowing, i.e. heated grips, cruise control, screen options, etc).

There’s only so much room in the garage :slight_smile:

Bigger garage, or loose the tesla. :grinning:

If you bought a Norden and were the type to give a name to your bike, what would you call it?

…only one name surely…
