Husqvarna Just Launched an Incredibly Cool Cafe Racer

Husqvarna Vitpilen 701

Husqvarna is perhaps best known for its dirt bikes, but its latest offering is designed specifically for the asphalt.

The Vitpilen 701 features a 693cc single-cylinder engine, supplied by parent company KTM, cradled within a modern, minimalist body. The frame has been engineered to provide detailed feedback to the rider and even weight distribution. The bike also comes with a ride-by-wire throttle, ABS (which can be disabled), and traction control.

Stopped power is provided by a 320mm disc up front mated to a Brembo four-piston caliper. Out back is a 240mm disc and Brembo single-piston caliper.

Look for Husqvarna’s sporty and lightweight Vitpilen 701 in dealerships early next year.
