EICMA 2019 – 701 ENDURO LR ADDED TO 2020 HUSQVARNA RANGE | Manufacture News | Press Release

New Long Range 701 ENDURO joins updated Husky 701 range for 2020

701 SUPERMOTO / 701 ENDURO / 701 ENDURO LR

On display at this year’s EICMA is the 701 SUPERMOTO and 701 ENDURO models featuring the latest cutting-edge electronic rider aids. Cornering ABS, lean angle sensitive traction control, ride modes and easy shift are featured as standard and offer the highest levels of safety matched to the highest performance. Both models are extremely well-balanced, offering outstanding levels of agility and handling.

The renowned, torquey, 74 hp single-cylinder 692.7 cc engine features ride-by-wire throttle, offering a perfectly linear power delivery. For the first time the new machines will have their own unique progressive new graphics.

Bred from Husqvarna Motorcycles’ highly popular 701 ENDURO, the brand new 701 ENDURO LR (Long Range) shares the same advanced electronics as the 701 ENDURO but offers additional touring capabilities for riders wanting to travel further.

Remaining a lightweight and nimble machine, the additional 12-litre auxiliary fuel tank increases the total fuel capacity to 25 litres, meaning a significantly bigger fuel range for endless enduro capability.
