2021 Husqvarna 701 Lineup First Look (6 Fast Facts + Photos)

There are two 2021 Husqvarna 701 motorcycles to choose from—the Enduro and the Supermoto. Although they are closely related, with the same frame and motor, the wheels, tires, and suspension units are significantly different. Today, however, we’re going to dig into the updates to the Husky 701s.

  1. There’s a new dashboard. The LCD unit has a rev counter and will keep you apprised of your gearbox position.
  1. The exhaust system is now Euro-5 compliant. Regardless, the thumper puts out 74 horsepower at 8000 rpm and 54 ft-lbs of torque at 6500 rpm.

  1. The 2021 Husqvarna 701 Supermoto gets a new monoblock Brembo caliper up front. It is a four-piston design, and is radially mounted. The disc is floating.
  1. You can completely disengage the ABS on the 2021 Husqvarna 701 Enduro. The Supermoto can only disengage the rear wheel from the purview of the two-channel Bosch 9.1 system.
