The Husqvarna 701 Enduro Trek is set to return for 2020 when the Northern Explorer event takes place between 27 April-1 May in New South Wales.

A rare opportunity for Husqvarna 701 Enduro riders to take the ultimate one-model adventure together, next year’s edition follows on from the brilliant inaugural event held in the Victorian High Country earlier this year.

The Husqvarna 701 Enduro Trek Northern Explorer represents the pioneering brand’s ‘Simple, Progressive’ mantra, and riders who take part will be treated to an unforgettable four-day experience with fellow adventurers.

Boasting an assortment of terrain including everything from sandy coastal tracks to lush rainforests with rocky water crossings and impressive hillclimbs, there will also be a mix of open cattle country that will delight participants with a wide range of abilities including optional harder routes.

Starting and finishing in Coffs Harbour, the Husky Trek will explore Northern NSW from coast to country with overnights in Glen Innes, Tenterfield and Yamba – aiming to support local businesses in the region which have been affected by drought and devastating fires recently.

At $1495 per rider, the entry fee includes approximately 1200-kilometres of adventure riding over four-days with lead riders, course markers, GPS files, luggage support, technical and tyre support, back-up vehicle, sweep and medical support, as well as dinner every night.

Participants will also receive a Husqvarna Motorcycles riders bag that includes a t-shirt, stickers and more, as well as enjoy the opportunity to ride with professional riders and special guests.

In addition, riders can relive the Husqvarna 701 Enduro Trek Northern Explorer through an event video featuring all of the highlights and official event photography provided by a dedicated media crew.

Riders will be required to have a road-registered Husqvarna 701 Enduro motorcycle fitted with knobby tyres, as well as third-party property damage insurance or comprehensive motorcycle insurance (recommended) and a full open unrestricted motorcycle licence.

Registrations open Wednesday, 11 December, at 9am AEST. For more information, visit
