HUSQVARNA’S 2021 NORTHERN EXPLORER 701 TREK: THE MOVIE

3 weeks ago | Words: Miller Mendham | Photos: Husqvarna Motorcycles

The second Husqvarna Motorcycles 701 Enduro Trek: Northern Explorer occurred earlier this year, and with it saw 50 riders tackle some of the most picturesque singletrail in Australia. With over 1200 kilometres of trail, the ride was made even better by the weather providing some although wet; prime conditions.

Day one kicked off with 4 kilometers of open trail before heading into some, (at times) challenging single track, and through this, the riders enjoyed some wide open spaces.

Day two consisted of some wet weather, but some open and flowy firetrail to suit, after lunch, the fire roads soon turned into some tighter singletrack with interesting features.

Day three saw the Rocky River Road, accompanied by moist sand which meant riders were able to test the 701 in its true habitat.

The final day of the trek travelled along some wide open and low tide beaches, which in turn created some great laughs for the riders and crew.

With the 2021 Husqvarna Motorcycles 701 Northern Explorer Trek in the books. We’re keen to see what they have in store for next year! Check out the Explorer Trek feature film here:
