INTEGRATED FRONT TANK
The perfectly integrated front tank offers an additional fuel capacity of 12 litres giving the 701 ENDURO LR an effective range of +- 500 km for long range offroad riding. The
single-piece construction is made from an impact resistant high strength polyamide. The fuel supply can be easily selected while riding with a handlebar mounted switch as each tank has a separate fuel pump. For added predictability on extended rides, the front tank has an additional reserve indicator. Both the front and rear tank offer a key lock that can be easily unlocked using the main ignition key.

Lightweight, integrated construction – additional 12-litre capacity
Easy switch between front and rear tank – handlebar mounted switch Reserve indicator on both tanks – predictability to explore
remote regions

CNC MACHINED TRIPLE CLAMPS
As on the other major components of the chassis, the anodised CNC machined triple clamps have precisely engineered flex designed into them that allows the fork tubes to flex under stress. This gives the rider more feeling under braking and on bumpy terrain. They are designed to evenly distribute the clamping force on the fork leg, maximizing contact area for optimal sensitivity and minimum friction. Additionally, the handlebar is attached to the triple clamp through a rubber damping system for reduced vibrations and superb comfort.
Precisely engineered flex – maximum feedback to the rider Sophisticated fork leg clamping – even distribution of
clamping force on fork leg

FRONT SUSPENSION
The 701 ENDURO uses a 48 mm WP XPLOR upside-down fork. The split fork design is fitted with
springs on both sides but features separate damping functions. Compression damping is on the left and the rebound is on the right-hand side, without influencing each other. As with all XPLOR forks by WP, the clicker settings can easily and quickly be adjusted via the dials on the top of the fork tubes with 30 clicks each. A red dial on the right alters rebound damping, while a white dial on the left is for compression damping.

WP suspension stands for top quality and offers the best performance levels. Precision engineering, quality materials and advanced production processes are an integral part of the WP forks on the Husqvarna model range.

250 mm wheel travel – excellent all-terrain capability Rubber damping system – superb comfort

BRAKES
The latest ABS technology by Bosch features advanced logic for offroad conditions, such as gravel, and is mated to high performance Brembo brakes – a two-piston floating caliper, Ø 300 mm floating wave disc at the front, and a single-piston caliper, Ø 240 mm floating wave disc at the rear. The perfectly placed controls allow for optimal feel and balance under all conditions.

High performance brakes – shorter stopping distance with greater control and confidence

WHEELS
Black DID rims, made of high strength aluminium alloy, ensure the 701 ENDURO wheels can take on the toughest terrain. The offroad capabilities of the 701 ENDURO are underlined by the size of the wheels – 21” at the front and 18” at the rear.

Lightweight, strong and reliable construction – minimum unsprung weight

TYRES
Continental TKC 80 tyres are standard fitment on the 701 ENDURO. The tried and tested tyres offer high levels of grip and handling on a wide variety of terrain, on street and offroad, as well as guaranteeing impressive longevity.
The sizes are 90/90-21 at the front and 140/80-18 at the rear.
Continental TKC 80 tyres – excellent grip and handling on all surfaces

 

OFFROAD RIDE MODE
The Offroad ride mode (mode 2) provides a smooth throttle response with offroad traction control, allowing wheel slip and lifting of the front wheel for offroad usage without hindering the performance.

In offroad mode, the lean angle functionality is disengaged allowing the rider to turn while using berms and ruts.

A2 LICENCE COMPATIBLE
With the specific A2 engine map that limits power to 30 kW, the 701 ENDURO can be ridden by A2 licence holders that aspire to becoming true world travellers.

OFFROAD ABS MODE
With an additional accessory dongle, it is possible to switch into offroad ABS mode. In the offroad mode, ABS only functions on the front wheel. The rider can then lock up
the rear wheel for improved vehicle control offroad and the reduced ABS activation on the front wheel helps in effective deceleration on loose surfaces. ABS is no longer lean angle sensitive in this mode, nor does it detect a lifting of the rear wheel.

 

CHASSIS

CHROMIUM-MOLYBDENUM STEEL TRELLIS FRAME
The lightweight trellis frame is made of high-grade chromium-molybdenum steel. It is developed to ensure precise handling and instil complete confidence in the rider.
Detailed feedback is transmitted to the rider thanks to precisely calculated torsional rigidity and longitudinal flex. It works equally well on the street and offroad, harnessing the power of the big single cylinder motor while guaranteeing amazing agility and stability, combined with perfect weight distribution and a tight turning circle. The trellis frame only weighs 8.4 kg. The laser cut components are robot welded and hydro- formed for maximum precision and consistent quality, underlining the cutting-edge technology of every Husqvarna motorcycle.

Precisely engineered torsional rigidity and longitudinal flex – detailed feedback for maximum rider confidence and comfort
Lightweight construction – excellent agility and handling

ALUMINIUM SWINGARM
By eliminating welding, the single-component, die-cast swingarm weighs just 3.9 kg. Specifically, designed flex ensures the highest levels of traction and stability.

One-piece construction – superior quality and light weight
Carefully engineered flex characteristics – maximum traction and stability

POLYAMIDE REAR SUBFRAME AND TANK
The self-supporting rear subframe with integrated 13-litre fuel tank is perfectly positioned for the best possible weight distribution. The single-piece construction weighs only 5.2 kg and is made of high strength polyamide in a thermoplastic rotational moulding production process. It is impact resistant and has been designed to increase versatility by allowing for the mounting of hardware for side and rear bags with the addition of a dedicated mounting frame, as well as offering the possibility of mounting passenger handles.

Lightweight, high-tech construction – integrates 13-litre fuel tank Versatility – possibility of mounting hardware for side and rear bags

ENGINE
The unparalleled, 692.7cc, single overhead cam, liquid cooled, single cylinder engine features the latest technology in terms of design and electronics.

Maximum power output of 55 kW (74 hp) at 8,000 rpm and torque of 73.5 Nm at 6,500 rpm are outstanding figures that leave riders in no doubt of the performance potential of this single cylinder masterpiece. The extremely lightweight engine weighs only 43.4 kg without oil but including all components such as electric start, throttle body, clutch and coolant lines.

Reliability, durability and efficiency are guaranteed thanks to technical solutions such as active crankcase evacuation and forced lubrication, which reduce oil friction and
pump losses contributing to the long 10,000 km service intervals and extremely low fuel consumption. Importantly, this lowers the cost of ownership of this class-leading single cylinder power plant.

Impressive power and torque – 74 hp 73.5 Nm
Long service intervals and low fuel consumption – low cost of ownership
Cutting edge ride-by-wire electronics – class-leading single cylinder technology and performance

CYLINDER HEAD
A smooth power delivery is guaranteed thanks to the state-of-the-art four-valve cylinder head and twin spark ignition. The single overhead camshaft acts directly on the 42 mm intake valves via finger followers while the 34 mm exhaust valves are operated by a rocker arm, which delivers more exact valve timing at higher engine speeds.

Single overhead cam – compact cylinder head design, low friction, lightweight and cost efficient
Double spark plugs – smooth engine behaviour, better emissions and fuel consumption
Usable power up to 8,000 rpm

CRANKSHAFT, CONROD AND PISTON
The crankshaft features an 80 mm stroke that runs on a roller bearing to ensure long service intervals and reliability. To increase comfort and reduce vibrations a
second counter balancer shaft reduces inertia forces for a smoother ride. The plain bearing type connecting rod is connected to the large bore 105 mm piston via a DLC (diamond like coating) piston pin. This along with the aluminium and silicon alloy piston material makes for a high strength and wear-resistant combination, which is
reliable even at the 9,000-rpm limit. The compression ratio is 12.7:1.

Large bore and short stroke – 105 mm/80 mm
Forged aluminium and silicone allow piston – high performance and lightweight
Reduced oscillating masses – lower vibrations

 

RIDE-BY-WIRE THROTTLE
The Keihin electronic fuel injection features a 50 mm throttle body that has no mechanical linkage to the throttle grip. As the rider twists the throttle open or closed, the throttle valve is electronically controlled by the engine management system (EMS), which continuously compares engine parameters with data from sensors and adjusts
the throttle valve accordingly. This results in perfect power delivery and throttle response. Additionally, an intake resonator also improves the intake charge movement and as a result provides optimal throttle response specifically at small throttle valve positions.

Electronically controlled throttle – perfect power delivery and throttle response
Intake resonator – exceptional throttle response from low rpm

BODYWORK
The 701 ENDURO and SUPERMOTO are fitted with state- of-the-art bodywork featuring a long seat that reaches over the radiator shrouds to improve grip in all conditions. Striking new graphics highlight Husqvarna’s progressive design. Tightly wrapped around the engine and frame, the 701’s bodywork is ergonomically designed to connect the rider’s body to the motorcycle. This perfect fit between man and machine allows for total control in all riding situations. Standard handguards protect the rider’s hands from the elements.

Striking new graphics – highlight Husqvarna’s progressive design
Slim bodywork – perfect movement and ergonomics for all rider sizes
Functional design – carefully engineered ergonomics for maximum control

CUTTING-EDGE ABS
The latest technology in braking systems is fitted to the 701 ENDURO and 701 SUPERMOTO. The Bosch
cornering ABS system can be completely switched off for riders who wish to have full braking control. The system also features advanced rollover protection – in standard ABS mode, under extremely hard braking, sensors avoid the motorcycle from front-flipping and throwing the rider over the bars.

Bosch 9.1 MP ABS – maximum braking performance and safety
ABS can be switched off entirely – full control of braking

LEAN ANGLE SENSOR
The Lean angle sensor keeps track of the angle of the motorcycle and sends information to the ECU and relevant control units, which use this data to adjust Traction control and ABS actuation.

RIDE MODES
Ride modes can easily be switched from the handlebar, making adjustments to the power characteristic of the engine possible on the go. Street mode (mode 1) is available on both the 701 ENDURO and 701 SUPERMOTO with a
sporty throttle response and cornering sensitive MTC (Motorcycle Traction Control), minimising wheel slip and wheelies for controlled street riding performance.

Switchable ride modes – change the power characteristic and traction control on the fly

MTC
The MTC (Motorcycle Traction Control) lean-angle sensitive traction control system reacts immediately when the rotational speed of the rear wheel is disproportionate
to the riding situation. In a matter of milliseconds, MTC reduces the engine output with an extremely smooth, barely noticeable intervention at the throttle valves, until the system has reduced slippage for the selected ride mode and current lean angle. For riders looking for full control of their motorcycle, the traction control can also be switched off.

Lean-angle sensitive traction control – perfect rear wheel traction in all riding situations
Fully disengageable – full control over rear wheel slippage

SLIPPER CLUTCH
The power assist slipper clutch (PASC) by Adler allows for greater speeds going into and coming out of corners. By maximising rear wheel grip under hard acceleration, as well as preventing rear wheel instability and hopping when braking hard into the apex of a turn, it ensures maximum control and perfect down-shifting. The unique
design makes it easier to pull the clutch lever and reduces lever vibration. The Magura hydraulic system guarantees perfect clutch action.

Slipper clutch – maximum control under hard acceleration, braking and down-shifting
Magura hydraulic system – perfect clutch action

 

GEARBOX / EASY SHIFT
A lightweight 6 speed gearbox with smooth and precise shifting gives riders perfect control and confidence even in extreme conditions on track or offroad.

With Easy Shift gears can be seamlessly shifted up or down without using the clutch. The system uses two sensors, one on the shift arm, which detects the
movement on the shift lever rod when the rider upshifts. The second sensor detects the gear engagement and matches engine parameters to allow a simple gear change at any RPM or engine load.

When downshifting, the system matches the engine speed to the speed of the lower gear.

EXHAUST
The stainless steel exhaust allows the engine to breathe freely while maintaining low noise and exhaust emissions, as well as being perfectly integrated into the overall design.

AIRBOX
A front-mounted airbox is easily accessible from under the seat and guarantees optimal air flow to the engine while ensuring maximum protection against the elements.

Shorter shift times and improved rear wheel traction
A more precise and smoother ride – clutch actuation and backing off the throttle are no longer required
The rider can keep full grip on the handlebars
