2021 Husqvarna 701 Enduro LR Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
The lightweight trellis frame is made of high-grade chromium-molybdenum steel and 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.
DUAL FUEL TANKS
Combined with the 13 litre self-supporting rear subframe fuel 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 off-road 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.
WP SUSPENSION (FRONT)
The WP XPLOR front fork provides 250 mm wheel travel and capable performance specifically aimed at enduro type riding. The forks consists of an open cartridge layout with a spring in each circuit and split damping functions with the left leg dedicated to compression damping and right fork leg rebound damping.
WP SUSPENSION (REAR)
The high performance WP XPLOR rear shock absorber is completely adjustable for compression and rebound. Connected to a linkage system with offroad geometry and 250 mm of rear wheel travel, the system ensures unbeatable all-terrain capability.
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 73,5 Nm at 6,500 rpm leave the rider in no doubt of the performance packed inside this lightweight unit.
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.
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.
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.
Black D.I.D rims made of high strength aluminium alloy add an aggressive and modern look to the 701 Enduro. The offroad capabilities of the 701 Enduro are underlined by the 21″ front and 18″ rear wheel diameter.
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, limiting wheel slip and wheelies to a minimum for optimal street riding performance. Mode 2 provides a smooth throttle response with off-road traction control, allowing wheel slip and lifting of the front wheel for off-road usage without restricting the performance.
The latest ABS technology from Bosch is combined with high performance brakes from Brembo: a two piston floating calliper and disc at the front as well as a single piston calliper and disc at the rear (both floating wave discs, 300 and 240 mm diameter respectively). The latest corner sensitive ABS technology from Bosch guarantees maximum safety and total confidence and can be fully disengaged for more advanced riders.
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.
Innovative bodywork featuring a long seat that reaches over the radiator shrouds and includes functional ribbing 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.
The APTC (Adler Power Torque Clutch) from Adler allows for greater speeds going into and coming out of corners by maximizing rear wheel grip under hard acceleration as well as preventing rear wheel instability and chatter when braking hard into turns. The rider thus enjoys maximum control and perfect down-shifting.
CNC-MACHINED TRIPLE CLAMPS
As on the other major components of the chassis, the anodized CNC-machined triple clamps have a precisely engineered flex designed to allow the fork tubes to flex under stress. This gives the rider more feeling under braking and on bumpy terrain.
A2 LICENSE COMPATIBLE
With the specific A2 engine map that limits power to 30 kW, the 701 Enduro is suitable for A2 licence holders who aspire to become true world travelers.
