Husqvarna’s Touring 701 Enduro LR Is A Dual Sport With A 300+ Mile Range

Mar 9, 2020

Category: Rides

Building off of the Swedish firm’s already remarkably well-balanced 701 Enduro, Husqvarna has now rolled out an updated, touring-ready version of the on/off-road thumper with the 2020 701 Enduro LR.

Denoting the model’s “Long Range” capabilities, the new Husky see’s the standard 701’s 13L self-supporting, single-piece polyamide subframe-integrated fuel-cell supplemented via a 12L front tank that bumps the bike’s range up to a cool 310-miles. Despite the added range and equipment, the Long Range model tips the scales at just 10kgs more than the standard 701, clocking in at 155kg. At the heart of the long-range dual-sport is a 692.7cc single — derived from KTM’s 690 platform — that generates 74hp and 52ft-lbs of torque, is wrapped in a Chromoly trellis frame, and is paired with a six-speed gearbox and APTC slipper clutch. The LR also retains all the trick tech bits found on the standard model such as lean angle-sensitive traction control, two-channel Bosch cornering ABS, multiple ride modes, ride-by-wire throttle, and Husky’s Easy-Shift function. Decorated in a new dedicated graphics package, the 701 LR also gets Brembo brakes, D.I.D. Dirtstar rims, and WP XPLOR suspension fore and aft that affords nearly 10” of travel front and back. Available starting later this month, the 2020 Husqvarna 701 Enduro LR starts at $13,950.
