A powerful urban icon

The VITPILEN 701 is an immaculately designed street bike that offers a new perspective on urban motorcycling. Driven by a powerful single-cylinder engine, this compact and agile motorcycle is expertly crafted to deliver minimalist styling with exceptional performance and reduced to the bare essence of what a motorcycle should be. Created to suit the unique, progressive lifestyle of modern motorcycling, it delivers a more thrilling, honest and real bike experience.

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 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 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 exhaust system on the VITPILEN 701 comprises two parts, a pre-silencer made from steel, and a final silencer, which is finished off with a black coating. The design is integrated in the VITPILEN style and importantly, also ensures the VITPILEN 701 meets strict emissions regulations.
Lightweight 17" cast alloy wheels are a design highlight of the VITPI LEN 701. The wheels offer a unique sense of style and ensure high levels of strength and durability with minimal unsprung weight. The Husqvarna logo is embedded into the wheel, discreetly highlighting the attention to detail on the VITPILEN 701.
Integrated within the bodywork is a progressive design feature known as "the split". This yellow 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.
