Buyer's Guide > Vitpilen 701
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
Husqvarna teased the 701 Vitpilen on the show circuit for years before finally bringing it to market. It's powered by the same super-smooth single-cylinder motor that KTM originally built for the Duke 690 and 690 Adventure machines, then put into the 701 Enduro. The styling is the edgy neo-retro look that we're going to see sweep across the industry in coming years.
