Husqvarna Motorcycles has recently announced its long awaited return to the street segment with the production of two new motorcycles in its daring new Vitpilen family – the 701 Enduro and 701 Supermoto. But Husky took its street line one step further with the launch of the Vitpilen 701 Concept.

Husqvarna says it’s continuing with its tradition of bringing honest, innovate motorcycles that provide the best possible experience for its riders. With that in mind, Husqvarna is proud to announce the Vitpilen 701 Concept Model.

Unveiled last month at the 73rd EICMA Milan Motorcycle Show, the Vitpilen 701 Concept is more than a stylish concept bike; it is the next in Husqvarna’s progressive vision of motorcycling in the 21st century. Each component was painstakingly considered before becoming integrated with one of the most visually stunning concepts on display.

The Vitpilen 701 has reinvigorated the series, creating an experience that is raw, primal, exhilarating in appearance and feel with the all new, modern large displacement single cylinder motorcycle.

This year Husqvarna will be celebrating 112 years of heritage, developing motorcycles for both off-road and street divisions. The KTM-owned brand is eager to bring some fresh inspiration to the street with the Vitpilen model range.

The 701 Enduro and 701 Supermoto models have already been welcomed with open arms by motorcycle fans. Now Husqvarna  hopes to fulfill its promise to the consumer market by continuing to expand into the street markets.

To date, the Husqvarna Vitpilen 401 has been applauded to for its unique design qualities and will be available in your local showrooms in the spring of 2017. Drawing from Husqvarna’s rich past with the Silverpilen line of the early 50s, the team has combined those classic aesthetics with modern technology and premium components that the discerning rider has come to expect in a new production bike.

Also found in the Vitpilen family will be the Vitpilen 125, a minimalist styled, single-cylinder engine powered machine that stays true to its familiar roots found in its bigger brother.

Husqvarna says it is determined to remain faithful to the companies vision, providing honest, state-of-the-art motorcycles that will surely bolster the brand’s position in the street bike market.
