Additionally, the long seat that extends over the radiator shrouds provides a better grip in all situations. Also, the Brembo brakes allow for shorter stopping distances and great control. Finally, Husqvarna completed the aggressive design with Continental TKC 80 tires, which provide excellent on and off-road handling.
The beating heart of the 701 Enduro is still the well-known single-cylinder 693 cc engine that boasts a maximum power output of 73 HP (75 PS) at 8,000 rpm and torque of 73,5 Nm at 6,500 rpm. The bike includes a ride-by-wire throttle, allowing users to embark on their next off-road adventure with "perfectly linear power delivery and sharp throttle response."
It also boasts a 6-speed gearbox with an Easy Shift feature that allows changing gears up or down without using the clutch. The power characteristic and traction control can also be adjusted. In addition, the bike has two ride modes: Street and Off-road, which can be selected effortlessly from the handlebar.
The Street mode offers riders controlled street-riding performance. When selected, a quick throttle response is delivered, while cornering sensitive ABS and traction control offer users more control.
When Off-Road mode is selected, ABS will only function on the front wheel. However, with the new 701 Enduro, the ABS feature can be completely disabled. This is a great option for experienced riders who want complete control over their ride.
It's also worth noting that the 701 Enduro can be ridden by A2 license holders with the specific A2 engine map that limits power to 40 HP (41 PS). As for bike's price, the company didn't provide this information yet. However, you can ask about it at any authorized Husqvarna Motorcycles dealer.
