Husqvarna’s Norden 901 Release Delayed By Patents

Adaptive Cruise Control Might Be In The Cards It’s been quite some time since the covers were torn off of Husqvarna’s plans to bring a larger adventure bike to the market, and many of us have been wondering when the heck we can expect an official release as the anticipation for this model increases. At the time, we still don’t have a definitive answer from Husqvarna as to when we should expect this ADV bike to hit showrooms, but we do have a glimmer of hope coming in the form of patent data tha...

Yamaha Files Trademark For ‘FZ-X’

Possibly Hinting At A New ADV Style Motorcycle? Although Yamaha shifted away from using the ‘FZ’ nomenclature for their line-up of naked motorcycles (FZ-07, FZ-09, FZ-10) and opted for the new ‘MT’ namesake, the FZ name is still alive and well in Asian markets with Yamaha’s FZ 25 providing great sales figures for the brand. The current FZ 25 is powered by a single-cylinder SOHC 249cc engine and produces around 21 horsepower. Those power figures may seem minimal if you’re from North America, but...

Super-Supermoto: A KTM 990 SMT from New Zealand

KTM made their bones with dirt bikes, but these days they’re just as well known for their wild street bikes. Their hit list includes models like the KTM 990 Supermoto—a 999.8 cc v-twin motard with aggressive lines and decent components. First released in 2008, it came in two variants: the purist 990 SMR, and later the more touring-focused 990 SMT. The SMT was still a goer, but weighed more and looked weird, thanks to its deeply stepped seat and its nose fairing. But hobby builder Nick Murray’...

Husqvarna Norden 901 Seen In Testing

The Sasquatch Effect: Is it Real, Or Not? The long-awaited Husqvarna Norden 901 has been spotted in the wild on some test rides, and we’re excited about it.  Husqvarna unveiled the concept for the ADV motorcycle way back in 2019 and has been pretty silent regarding its development and potential release since then. They promised it to be the motorcycle that would catapult the brand into the mainstream, as right now they are limited to their supermoto and motocross niches. Chances are, you’ve pro...

[Review] Klim Adventure GTX Boots

The Holy Grail of Adventure Riding Boots? I’ve tried and failed to adequately answer one tough question we’ve received in emails to the wBW editor. “Can you recommend riding boots that are comfortable to walk in but also provide a solid level of protection?” I haven’t yet found any I would say satisfactorily meet that criterion, but I’m hoping these new Klim Adventure GTX kicks are the unicorn we’re all looking for. This question is the motorcycle gear equivalent of asking to have your cake a...
