Spied! Husqvarna Svartpilen 701

The Husqvarna Svartpilen 701 prototype that appeared on the show circuit last fall has been spotted undergoing street testing.

There are photos of the bike in a few places online; you can see them here at Motorcyclist. It seems the new machine is sort of a neo-retro scrambler, mixing old styling with new in the same way the other Svartpilen and Vitpilen Husqvarna models do, except this model is powered by the KTM 690-derived single cylinder motor.

The photos were taken by BMH Images; find high-resolution photos of the spied machine at Motorcyclist.

  1. I wonder if that is the longest license plate holder in the industry. The 401 handles it a more gracefully. I wonder if there is any provision for some kind of luggage in the back, or if it would have to be a tank bag only.
