2018 Husqvarna Vitpilen 701 First Ride Review

It’s finally here, folks. The 2018 Husqvarna Vitpilen 701. Since its concept was unveiled at EICMA in 2015, the 701 has been a highly anticipated model throughout the world. From the farthest stretches of the internet, comments have asked when, if, and where the Vitpilen 701 would be available – with some giving up hope as to whether it was ever going to be produced at all. MO is happy to announce that we have had the chance to get the Vitpilen 701 in our garage and to test on our home roads. Although our time with the Vitpilen 701 was brief, we made good use of it.

Husqvarna is making its way back into street motorcyclesafter nearly 70 years, but one flip of the Vitpilen’s key will remind you that the company has been “Pioneering Since 1903.” Though the company first shoved an internal combustion engine into a bicycle frame in 1903, its roots can be traced back to 1689, when the company was created as a weapons foundry. Fast forward to 2013 and KTM’s acquisition of the Swedish firm, which would give Husqvarna an ace-in-the-hole when it came to creating new street bikes. With its chromoly steel-trellis frame and 693cc Single engine borrowed from the KTM 690 Duke via the Husqvarna 701s, the new Husqvarna has a solid platform to build from. Let’s see if the Vitpilen 701 lives up to the hype.
