Husqvarna Motorcycles are 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 take 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 an outstanding performance output of 75 hp [power] and 72.0 Nm [torque]. 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 fully-adjustable 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 authorised Husqvarna Motorcycles dealers during the first quarter of 2019.

Featuring a lower and more locked-in position, the VITPILEN 701 AERO concept offers a fully immersive riding experience. Combining an appealing classic design with thrilling performance, it aims to deliver an experience that recaptures the pure exhilaration of riding a motorcycle.
