2018 - Present

Husqvarna`s Vitpilen 701, first revealed as a concept two years ago, has been unveiled in Milan as a 2018 production model. The stripped down naked roadster, pictured above, was shown at the Eicma motorcycle show along with a new concept the Svartpilen 701, a more scrambler-esque take on the same theme.




 

2017 - Present

The Husqvarna 701 Supermoto will be getting an update for the 2017 model year, with both bikes receiving the updated 690cc single-cyliner engine that is currently found in the new-generation KTM 690 Duke. Husqvarna says that the new motor adds 1,000 rpm to the redline, and the new Keihin fuel injection system has a 50 mm throttle body that has no mechanical linkage to the throttle grip, for true ride-by-wire technology.




 

2015 - 2016

With close to 70 hp, advanced electronics and a state-of-the-art chassis, the 145 kg 701 Supermoto captures the thrill of the race track and brings the pure riding essence of Supermoto to the street.
