2016 Husqvarna 701 Supermoto

Returning to the world of supermoto, Husqvarna goes big for 2016 with the 701 Supermoto. Using the same basic package as the 701 Enduro, but with shorter suspension plus street rims and rubber, the big motor is all about torque and should be a huge wheelie machine.

The big 320mm front disc will haul the rider down, and there’s a high-end Bosch 9M+ two-channel ABS system, which can be turned off if you like sliding that fat rear tire—the Continental tires at both ends are supermoto-specific.

WP suspension and Keihin ride-by-wire fueling, plus three power maps and a slipper clutch gives the rider plenty of control over the behavior of the 701 Supermoto.
