FILLING THE VOID
The burbling-pop of the quickshifter encourages you to wind on a few more revs for the next up-shift. Riding the torque curve, confidently firing out of corners. This is a riding experience defined by its easy-going rawness. But when the empty road calls for it - when you need to wrestle the bars and scrub the tyres, the SVARTPILEN 701 will happily oblige.
The SVARTPILEN 701 is powered by a modern 692.7 cc liquid cooled, single-cylinder engine that features the latest design and electronics technology. With a peak horsepower of 55 kW (75 hp) and 72 Nm of torque at 6750 rpm, there is no doubting this motorcycle´s performance potential. The electronic fuel injection is operated by a ride-by-wire system and delivers immediate, sharp and refined power, controlled by the standard traction control system. Featuring some of the latest technical solutions, such as a standard up & down easy shift, this engine delivers exceptional ride-ability. Produced using innovative production processes and the highest quality materials, premium reliability and efficiency is ensured. This quality also results in conveniently long 10,000 km service interval.
The lightweight trellis frame is constructed to ensure precise handling and deliver confidence in all conditions. By using high grade chromium molybdenum tubular steel, detailed feedback is transmitted to the rider through precisely engineered torsional rigidity and longitudinal flex. This guarantees advanced agility and stability, combined with perfect weight distribution and a tight turning circle - highly useful in urban environments.
The SVARTPILEN 701 is fitted with hydraulic BREMBO brake callipers, which are manufactured to the highest standards and, in combination with 320 mm front and 240 mm rear perforated steel discs, deliver controllable and confident braking performance. The SVARTPILEN 701 is also fitted with a state-of-the-art BOSCH ABS system, ensuring the highest level of safety in varying braking conditions.
The WP APEX suspension on the SVARTPILEN 701 is made to exacting standards, ensuring the highest level of quality and craftsmanship. The front features upside down 43 mm forks with a split damping function, while the rear features a monoshock, connected via a linkage to the swingarm. The high-quality components are adjustable for constantly changing urban environments.
Reduced to an authentic mix of classic thinking and modern design. This SVARTPILEN 701 is synonymous with the Swedish heritage of Husqvarna Motorcycles. The lightweight and narrow bodywork is shaped into the SVARTPILEN 701's design and intelligently allows for seamless movement while riding. Its dark colour, rugged tyres and protective parts give the motorcycle a rigorous look to match its urban exploration intentions.
The 18" front and 17" rear spoked wheels deliver an unmistakable look and contribute to the motorcycle´s dark, mysterious appeal. The PIRELLI MT60RS tyres offer advanced grip and durability in a wide range of conditions, while also giving the SVARTPILEN 701 a rugged character.
The seat of the SVARTPILEN 701 uses high-quality materials that, despite its reduced appearance, offers superior comfort and durability. Integrated into the minimalistic tail of the motorcycle, it floats seamlessly above the rear wheel, adding to the unique experience of riding the SVARTPILEN 701.
Extending from the main bodywork and floating above the rear wheel is the unique tail of the SVARTPILEN 701. Its reduced appearance is a stand-out component of the design and also features a flat track-inspired side panel, a modern touch to its timeless design.
TANK & FILLER CAP
The aluminium filler cap sits proudly atop the 12 L fuel tank and displays the Husqvarna Motorcycles logo as a stamp of premium quality. The tank seamlessly integrates into the overall design, and is a central focal point of the SVARTPILEN 701. Its uniquely shaped profile allows the rider to move seamlessly between riding positions, while the bronze painted finish and subtle silver accents highlight its progressive design.
CONTROL ZONE & TRIPLE CLAMP
Offroad style handlebars and risers provide a comfortable upright riding position, and a great visual perspective. The quality forged aluminium triple clamps are designed to ensure high levels of strength and reliability while also delivering advanced feedback and comfort to the rider. The reduced design means no fairings or unnecessary attachments obstruct the control zone and simply features a digital display unit with the necessary information.
The premium LED headlight on the SVARTPILEN 701 has an unmistakable look. It is integrated into the number board style front panel, which is another subtle element of its flat track inspiration. Around the circumference is a daytime running light, making the SVARTPILEN 701 clearly visible in all conditions.The LED tail light is integrated within the sleek bodywork and together with the swingarm mounted license plate and turn signals, give the rear end a clean, uninterrupted look.
