Buyer's Guide > Svartpilen 701
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The Svartpilen 701 (which translates to "Black Arrow") is sort of a street tracker, but a modern take on the form. It has Husqvarna's fantastic 701 single-cylinder engine, which is really just a remix of KTM's 690 platform. A smooth, powerful thumper with up-down quickshifter and good Brembo brakes in a competent chassis means this machine ought to be plenty of fun on the street.
