ENRICHING THEIR ‘REAL STREET’ RANGE WITH TWO AUTHENTIC MOTORCYCLES, HUSQVARNA TAKES A FIRST STEP INTO E-MOBILITY WITH A FULLY-FLEDGED MINI MX RACER
Husqvarna Motorcycles is proud to present the production SVARTPILEN 701 and VITPILEN 701 AERO concept models, while also unveiling the EE 5 electric minicycle at EICMA 2018. Further advancing their progressive vision of street motorcycling, Husqvarna Motorcycles also takes a first step into electric mobility with the EE 5 machine.

Inspired by the resurgence of the iconic flat track scene, the all-new SVARTPILEN 701 production model marks the next step in Husqvarna Motorcycles’ return to the street. It is a modern and innovative naked bike completely free of excess that aims to appeal to an entirely new generation of motorcycle users.

Making its first global appearance at EICMA, the VITPILEN 701 AERO concept model pays tribute to an iconic era of motorcycling. Contrasting the lines of a classic faired racer with modern styling, it is a high-performance concept machine that offers a more race-oriented glimpse on Husqvarna Motorcycles’ future steps in the street segment.

Drawing on Husqvarna’s rich history in top-level motocross competition, the EE 5 is an electric minicycle that features a 5 kW electric motor and is designed for aspiring young riders starting out in the exciting world of dirt biking.
SVARTPILEN 701

The SVARTPILEN 701 street explorer is a flat-track-inspired machine created for the new generation of freethinking motorcyclists. Devoid of any excess, it appeals to riders less interested in the hype and overstatement of modern day motorcycling – those who prefer a simpler, timeless design.

Inspired by the brand’s Swedish heritage, the SVARTPILEN
701 is a progressive motorcycle that demands to be ridden.
It is powered by a lightweight 4-stroke single-cylinder
engine that offers outstanding performance. Featuring the
latest technology in terms of design and electronics, the
engine combines optimum reliability with unmatched riding
efficiency.

The lightweight and powerful engine is housed within a
stripped-down chassis and bodywork layout to provide a
raw and authentic riding experience. Using high-grade
chromium molybdenum steel, the trellis frame provides
precise handling and ultimate confidence in all riding
conditions.

With the SVARTPILEN 701 featuring high quality and fullyadjustable
WP suspension, exceptional stopping power is
guaranteed by the combination of Brembo brakes with
Bosch’s latest ABS system. The all-new SVARTPILEN 701
will be available at authorized Husqvarna Motorcycles
dealers early in spring of 2019.
