2020 Husqvarna 701 Supermoto Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

FRAME
The lightweight trellis frame is made of high-grade chromium-molybdenum steel and developed to ensure precise handling and instil complete confidence. Detailed feedback is transmitted to the rider thanks to precisely calculated torsional rigidity and longitudinal flex.

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. Produced in a thermoplastic rotational moulding process, the single-piece construction weighs only 5.2 kg and is made of high-strength polyamide.

WP SUSPENSION (FRONT)
The WP APEX split fork has 215 mm wheel travel, and features improved damping and an easier setup than traditional forks thanks to the separate damping circuits in the fork legs. The left leg is dedicated to compression damping, while the right fork leg is for rebound damping.

WP SUSPENSION (REAR)
The fully adjustable WP APEX rear shock absorber features rebound damping adjustment as well as a high and low compression damping adjustment. The 250 mm rear wheel travel guarantees perfect control in every condition, be it on tight and twisty mountain roads or in crowded city centres.

ENGINE
The single overhead camshaft, liquid cooled, single cylinder engine features the latest in design and electronic technology. An outstanding maximum power output of 55 kW (74 hp) at 8,000 rpm and torque of 71 Nm at 6,750 rpm leave the rider in no doubt of the performance packed inside this lightweight unit.

CYLINDER HEAD
The compact design of the single overhead camshaft, 4-valve cylinder head features 42 mm intake valves and 34 mm exhaust valves actuated by a robust rocker arm system which delivers precise valve timing at high engine speeds. Ignition is via a dual spark plug layout, each of which has an individual ignition timing control for optimal fuel combustion in the large bore combustion chamber.

RIDE-BY-WIRE THROTTLE
The Keihin electronic fuel injection system features a 50 mm throttle body with 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). The EMS continuously compares engine parameters with data from sensors, and adjusts the throttle valve accordingly, resulting in perfect power delivery and throttle response.

GEARBOX
The lightweight 6-speed gearbox features an Easy Shift function allowing gears to be seamlessly shifted up or down without using the clutch. The system uses two sensors, one sensor is on the shift arm, which detects the movement on the shift lever rod when the rider upshifts. As the second sensor detects the gear engagement, it matches engine parameters to allow a simple gear change at any RPM or engine load.

WHEELS
Black anodised Giant tubeless spoked wheels are lightweight and strong. The 17″ wheels are shod with Continental ContiAttack Supermoto 120/70 and 160/60 tyres front and rear respectively for extraordinarily light handling and exceptional control at all lean angles.

RIDE MODES
With a handlebar switch, the power characteristic of the engine can easily be adjusted on the fly through two unique ride modes. Mode 1 offers a sporty throttle response and cornering sensitve traction control, keeping wheel slip and wheelies to a minimum for optimal street riding performance. Mode 2 provides a more aggressive throttle response with reduced traction control, to allow drifts and full control of the slide, aimed at track or unconditional street usage.

TRACTION CONTROL
The lean-angle sensitive traction control system monitors rear wheel speed and reacts immediately (within milliseconds) if the rotational speed of the rear wheel is disproportionate to the riding situation. The system works by reducing the engine output with a smooth and barely perceivable intervention at the throttle valve, until the system has reduced slippage to an optimum level for the selected ride mode and current lean angle. For riders looking for the full control of their motorcycle, the traction control can also be switched off.

BRAKES
Amazing stopping power and control are available at the rider’s demand thanks to the radially mounted 4 piston Brembo calliper and floating disc at the front, and the single piston calliper, floating disc at the rear (320 and 240 mm diameters respectively). The latest corner sensitive ABS technology from Bosch guarantees maximum safety and total confidence and can be fully disengaged for more advanced riders.

BODYWORK
Innovative bodywork featuring a long seat that reaches over the radiator shrouds to improve grip in all conditions. Tightly wrapped around the engine and frame, the 701’s bodywork is ergonomically designed to connect the rider’s body to the motorcycle ensuring perfect harmony between man and machine while allowing for total control in all riding situations.

CNC-MACHINED TRIPLE CLAMPS
The anodised CNC-machined triple clamps are designed for high performance Supermoto needs. Stylishly crafted and engineered with a precise flex, they transmit detailed feedback on the behaviour of the front end to the rider.

SLIPPER CLUTCH
The power assisted slipper clutch 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.

A2 LICENSE COMPATIBLE
With the specific A2 engine map that limits the power to 30 kW, the 701 SUPERMOTO is suitable for A2 licence holders who crave amazing agility and handling combined with the latest technological innovations.
