2016 Husqvarna 701 Supermoto

When we first reported on the Husqvarna 701 Supermoto after the bike’s release last November at EICMA (Milan Motorcycle Show), Husky reported its new 67-horsepower motorcycle would reach dealers in fall of 2015.

Well, this was true – for European dealers. Now Husqvarna reports that its 701 Supermoto – the first Husky to officially return to street – will reach stateside dealers in February 2016.

The Husqvarna 701 Supermoto features the same powerplant found in KTM’s 690 SMC R Supermoto and 690 Enduro R. The 690cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder produces 67 horsepower at 7500 rpm and 50 ft/lbs of torque at 6000 rpm.

The engine, which features Ride-by-Wire, is mated to a six-speed transmission that uses a hydraulic APTC slipper clutch. The 701 Supermoto features three riding modes – Standard, Soft and Advanced. Another slick feature is a “Bad Fuel” engine map for gas stations with bad fuel.

Husqvarna, which switched ownership from BMW to Pierer Industries (owners of KTM) in 2013, has also launched a dedicated site to the 701 Supermoto.
