Husqvarna Vitpilen 701
Superbly designed by the Kiska Studio, this Husqvarna is underpinned by the good single cylinder platform (75 hp) of the old KTM Duke 690.
The premium Husqvarna Vipilen 701 (priced near 10K €) would have totally stormed the market if powered by the brand new parallel twin of the newcomer KTM Duke 800 (near 9.500€)). But the decision to avoid any risk of internal cannibalization among sister companies of the same group, means doing a favor to the other competitors.
The Svartpilen 701 shares the same platform and is an interesting flat track concept. Production version due for 2019.
