HOT BIKES : Husqvarna 701 Supermoto 2020

As far as supermoto machines go, it’s hard to beat the beautifully balanced,  Husqvarna 701. For years, this model from Husky has been at the forefront of supermoto design and late last year the brilliant Swedish brand dropped the MY 2020 701 on us at EICMA

Thanks Husky!

The 2020 edition of the 701 generates 74 hp inside its liquid cooled single cylinder engine. Advanced electronics and a state-of-the-art chassis ensure a smooth ride in tricky conditions. And at just 145 kg, the 701 Supermoto captures the thrill of the race track and brings the pure riding essence of Supermoto to the street.

The 2020 701 also features innovative new bodywork, with a long seat that reaches over the rad shrouds to improve rider grip on uneven terrain. 

Front and rear WP suspension provides perfect control through tight twisting corners and crowded city centres. Pair the suspension with Brembo brakes front and rear and you get a bike that responds to your every movement.
