The VITPILEN 701 takes everything we love about motorcycles and combines them - a big, single cylinder motor, lightweight chassis, spartan aesthetics and a sporty riding style. Together, these attributes create an unmistakably pure riding experience, forcing your knee out in the bends and encouraging you to clear your mind and focus on nothing but the ride.
The VITPILEN 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 55kW (75hp) and 72Nm of torque, 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 a standard traction control system. The latest technical solutions such as standard up & down easy shift deliver exceptional ride-ability while innovative production processes and the highest quality materials ensure premium reliability and efficiency, resulting in a 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 VITPILEN 701 is fitted with hydraulic Brembo brake callipers, which are manufactured to the highest standards, and in combination with 320mm front and 240mm rear perforated steel discs, deliver controllable and confident braking performance. The VITPILEN 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 VITPILEN 701 is made to exacting standards, ensuring the highest level of quality and craftsmanship. The front suspension features upside down 43 mm forks, 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 VITPILEN 701 is synonymous with the Swedish heritage of Husqvarna Motorcycles. The lightweight and narrow bodywork is shaped into the VITPILEN 701´s progressive design and intelligently allows for seamless movement while riding.
Integrated within the bodywork is a progressive design feature known as "the split". This division runs diagonally from top to bottom and starts from the rear of the fuel tank, down to the exhaust hanger. This element is unique to Husqvarna and further showcases the brand's pioneering design direction.
The seat of the VITPILEN 701 uses high-quality foam and leather fabric, which, despite its reduced appearance, remains comfortable for the rider. Extending from the main bodywork and seamlessly floating above the rear wheel, the seat forms part of the minimalistic rear subframe. A new pillion seat cover provides a clean look and compliments the unique design lines the VITPILEN 701 provides.
TANK & FILLER CAP
The aluminium filler cap proudly displays the Husqvarna Motorcycles logo, like a stamp of premium quality, standing humble but bold on the fuel tank. The tank is seamlessly integrated into the design, and is a central focal point of the VITPILEN 701. The intelligent design also allows the rider to move seamlessly between riding positions, while painted finishes and subtle accents highlight its progressive and unique design.
CONTROL ZONE & TRIPLE CLAMP
Clip-on handlebars attach to forged aluminium triple clamps, central to the VITPILEN 701. In keeping with the minimalistic look of the authentic design, the control zone is not obstructed by any fairings and simply features a digital display unit with the necessary information.
The premium LED headlight on the VITPILEN 701 conveys an unmistakable look. Around the circumference is a daytime running light, making the VITPILEN 701 clearly visible in all conditions.The LED tail light is integrated within the sleek bodywork and gives the rear end a clean, uninterrupted appearance.
