Placing a new perspective on urban motorcycling, Husqvarna’s all-new Vitpilen 701 street bike is a compact and agile ride expertly crafted to assist in delivering a minimalist style coupled with heightened performance. Purposed as a go-to thrill for the adrenaline-seeking rider, there’s little here that isn’t aggressive in nature.
It’s all powered by a 693cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine boasting an output of 53 lb-ft of torque and 75 horses at your disposal. In addition, it features Husqvarna’s progressive design feature known as “ the split,” clip-on handlebars attached to forged aluminum triple clamps, a premium LED headlight for an unmistakable look, a high-quality foam seat featuring MOKKA leather fabric, and a set of lightweight 17-inch cast alloy wheels to ride upon. The steel frame is also laser cut and hydro-formed, and the Vitpilen comes equipped with a 3.2-gallon fuel tank while weighing a total of 346 pounds to boot. Let’s hope she’s released sooner rather than later.
