@Husqvarna1903 •#husqvarna •(September 29, 2016)- Husqvarna Motorcycles is proud to unveil the new 701 SUPERMOTO and 701 ENDURO, two class-leading single cylinder motorcycles that have been significantly revamped for model year 2017.

These exciting models offer a notable leap forward in terms of technology and performance.

Always committed to innovative product development, Husqvarna has focused on introducing further advances in engine performance and reliability, while giving both new models a fresh look that remains true to the brand’s Swedish heritage.

Combining high-tech componentry to offer unparalleled performance, the new 701 SUPERMOTO and 701 ENDURO ensure Husqvarna riders will have the perfect machinery to make the most out of any riding situation, ranging from daily commuting to adrenaline-filled on or off-road adventures.

MAJOR ADVANCES

Both the 701 SUPERMOTO and 701 ENDURO are equipped with a new generation single cylinder engine that features the latest technology in terms of design and electronics. With an improved power output of 74 hp at 8,000 rpm and torque of 52.4 ft-lb at 6,750 rpm, the 692.7cc single cylinder powerplant continues to offer class-leading performance.

With reliability a key factor, the use of innovative solutions such as the active evacuation and forced lubrication of the crankcase ensure long 6,000 mile service intervals. All the latest engine advances provide an extremely low fuel consumption that along with the lengthy service intervals massively reduces the cost of ownership in the long run.

Smooth power delivery is guaranteed by the state-of-the-art four-valve cylinder head with its twin spark ignition. With the single overhead camshaft technology allowing for more exact valve timing at higher engine speeds, Husqvarna engineers added an extra 1000 rpm of usable power to the engine. For increased comfort and less vibrations the engine also features a second counter balancer shaft.

The Keihin electronic fuel injection features a new 50 mm throttle body that has no mechanical linkage to the throttle grip and offers better throttle response and ride-ability at small throttle valve positions.
