2016 Husqvarna 701 Supermoto and 701 Enduro First Ride Review

Husqvarna Motorcycles is diving back into the on-road segment in 2016 with two new large displacement single-cylinder models, the 701 Supermoto and 701 Enduro. While these two models are new to the Husqvarna lineup they are not altogether new machines. The 701 Supermoto and 701 Enduro share platforms not only with each other, but also with the KTM 690 SMC (not sold in the US) and the KTM 690 Enduro. There are key differences like bodywork and the Husqvarna’s use of a trick polyamide rear subframe with an integrated fuel tank, much like the KTM 690’s, but the Husqvarna holds a bit more fuel. The Husqvarna 701 Enduro also has a bit more wheel travel than the KTM 690 Enduro.
