That's very interesting Krilloill I am sure that the accessories will be pretty slow in coming out seeing as it's a brand new model etc. One of the downsides of buying a new bike I suppose and of course non OEM parts will be the same. Gosh, heated grips not till Dec next year (n)

Yeah...it's unfortunate. I still have heated gloves, so I will have to make due until then. Gloves and the grips are the perfect combo. When it get's really cold (I'm in Colorado and ride year round), I throw the hippo hands on.

This was the response from my dealer when I inquired about accessories.

Hi KrillOill,
Further to your post a couple of months ago, I've just heard from the dealer in Ontario Canada where I've placed a deposit for a 901 about accessories cost and availability.

Here are estimated dates for the accessories I asked about and retail prices quoted in Canadian dollars:

22112932544 - TOURING CASE SET (black and grey hard panniers not the metal ones) (March 15, 2022) $947.99

63512012044 - CASE CARRIER (plastic carrier frame), No date provided, $287.99

22112925060 - INNER BAG (NO PRICING, NO ETA) 0.00

6350392315001A - STAND PLATE (kick stand 'puck' for side stand) (April 5, 2022) 1 $59.99

22103916044C1 - CENTRE STAND (April 19, 2022) $287.99

63712964088 - HEATED GRIP KIT (December 20, 2022) $287.99

yup worked up there for a long time, free stuff ain't free. It seems they pick one or two dealers as the importer so the base prices on a lot of stuff get jacked up, I know this to be the case with Harleys. The good thing is you can order stuff to a friend's house south of the border and go for an installation visit.


And in the U.S. those prices would be 30% less than Canadian prices. :) (exchange rate today is $1 U.S. = $1.28 Cnd...and taxes probably lower...we pay 13% "HST" on virtually everything)

I'm starting to see that other vendors are stocking accessories for the 901. I'm next on the list to receive a 901 (keeping my fingers crossed) and my local dealer is only expecting to receive one more.

I posted elsewhere, but thought I'd repeat here. I have added the OBMT center stand (easy install), Vanasche side stand enlarger, and Vanasche's PerunMoto rear luggage plate. And of course Grip Puppies. On dependable advice, I've ordered the Touratech pannier racks for the KTM 890, the Camel Adv heat shield for the 890, and the one-finger clutch pull device also for the 890 from Camel Adv. I was gonna install a cat delete pipe to get that heat bomb off the bike and out from under the shock, but from what I've been told the heat shield keeps your shock from cooking and doesn't void your warranty. Also ordered Ducati Spacer's for the 890 (that slack in the throttle grip unnerves me as much as those skinny handles did prior to adding my Grip Puppies). I'll post pics when all that comes in and I get it installed. Camel Adv's skid plate won't work with my center stand, so I'm waiting on the OBMT protection combo to come available, or even the AXP Touring (poly) skid plate sold by Rottweiler if it comes available first. The Camel Adv skid plate install video is disturbing regarding the footpeg mount bracket movement. His plate likely fixes that problem, but it won't work with a center stand. The AXP will otherwise serve my purposes, but from what I was told it will be mid-April at the earliest before it's available. I like the way the AXP covers the tanks. Mark and Lorry of OBMT have both told me that the protection combo will come available before that. Same for their pannier racks, but if my Touratechs (that are due to arrive this weekend) bolt up, I won't need those. I took off one side of the stock tank protection last night. Calling it tank protection is 'a stretch'. That thing will get ugly real quick in the places I ride. As for the other, soon-to-be-coming options, my bike performs so well that I'm not really sure how the Explorer Pack Software would improve things significantly, so it's at the bottom of the list. I would like to get headlight/aux light protection on it, and the Connectivity Unit sounds useful. A windshield spoiler would help - I'm 5'11" with an average length trunk and I'm getting buffeting that would get old on a long trip. My past GSAs and current GSPD had/have better wind protection. As for the heated seat and grips, I live in Texas. Today and tomorrow are likely our last cold spells, so those are also at the bottom of the list with the Explorer Pack Software. The bike has everything else one might need. Of course one can upgrade levers, pedals, chain guide, countershaft cover, and hand guards, but why...until those break or wear out. Hope some or all of that helps with your aftermarket parts searches. I'd welcome anything else any of you find out regarding parts or weaknesses.

Hi Jack,
Regarding the OBMT center stand, have you used it with the bike loaded with luggage?
I assume not since you say you are waiting for luggage to arrive soon.

The reason I ask is that I've heard it's the same stand as for the KTM 890R which has longer suspension travel and possibly more ground clearance.
So the stand legs might be a little longer.
Which might be fine when the bike is unloaded but could make it difficult to raise with full tanks and loaded luggage.

I used to own a KTM 950 SE and I found it very difficult to get that thing up on the center stand when loaded for a trip.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

Hi Brian, even unloaded it seems to be more of a chore than even my last GSA. A gauge I’ve come to use on my bikes is whether it’s tolerable to put it up while wearing Crocs (my mechanic-ing is usually while wearing those). I could do it with all my past bikes without too much pain, but this one is painful enough that my Army mouth to kicks in. As I get the bags on I’ll post and let you know how difficult it gets.

Many thanks for your honest response!
I was afraid you might say that.
The OBMT stand is now also out of stock so I have no choice but to wait for something anyway.
Based on your experience, I will wait for the OE Husky stand and see how that works.

I also think it has something to do with the engineering.
I had a Yamaha Super Tenere 1200 which weighed ~600 pounds but was very easy to get on the center stand even fully loaded.
Maybe Yamaha is just better at desiging center stands?

I hope you are enjoying your Norden as much as I am!
I've only ridden it about 150 miles so far but I love it.

The 2 accessories I want most are the heated grips and center stand and it looks like I could be waiting a while for both of them.

Thanks again,
Brian

I’ve a set of Oxfords on my GSPD. Really great heated grips for $100. I may put these on the 901 next year. They’re that good. And yes, the word Oxford is upside down. That’s how they mount best on my Beemer. Revzilla carries them as do many others.

I had Oxfords on my Super Enduro and I agree, they make a great product.
I was hoping to get the Husky (KTM) grips because they can be controlled by OE switch and help keep the cockpit a little less cluttered with switches, wires, etc.
