Husqvarna’s long awaited streetbikes surfaces in testing.
The Husqvarna Vitpilen 701 and 401 has been spotted in testing in Europe, in what appears to be near-production format.
The Vitpilen 701 caused a sensation when it was unveiled at the 2015 EICMA Show in Milan and uses the previous generation, 73hp KTM 690 Duke single-cylinder engine, main chassis and suspension and wheels, although the styling has been dramatically altered to create a futuristic café racer look.
Compared the 690 Duke, the Vitpilen’s bars have been lowered, there’s a new, sharper seat section, and the slim-line tank help to alter the ergonomics substantially. There’s also a different headlight.
