Husqvarna Vitpilen 701 and 401 Seen on the Streets!

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.
