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 separate damping functions. Compression damping is on the left and the rebound on the right-hand side without influencing each other. As with all XPLOR forks by WP, the clicker settings can be easily and quickly adjusted via the dials on the top of the fork tubes with 30 clicks each. The red dial on the right alters rebound damping, while the white dial on the left is for compression damping.

WP Suspension stands for premium 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.

  • 48 mm WP XPLOR upside-down fork → split fork design with springs on both sides but separate damping functions
  • Easy access clicker dials → simple and fast clicker settings
  • 250 mm wheel travel → versatile enduro suspension

Rear suspension

The high-performance WP XPLOR rear shock is completely adjustable for rebound and high and low speed compression damping and is connected to a linkage. Offroad geometry and 250 mm rear wheel travel ensure unbeatable all-terrain capability.

  • WP XPLOR shock → completely adjustable for rebound and high/low-speed compression damping
  • 250 mm wheel travel → excellent all-terrain capability

CNC machined triple clamps

As on the other major chassis components, the anodised CNC machined triple clamps are precisely engineered to allow 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, maximising 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
  • Rubber damping system → superb comfort



Black D.I.D rims, made of high-strength aluminium alloy, mated to silver nipples add an aggressive and modern look to the 701 Enduro. 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


Continental TKC 80 tyres are standard fitment on the 701 Enduro. The 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


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, 300 mm diameter floating wave disc at the front, and a single piston caliper, 240 mm diameter 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


Ride modes

The ride modes can be easily switched from the handlebar, making an adjustment to the power characteristic of the engine possible on the go.

Street mode (mode 1) gives a sporty throttle response with cornering sensitive ABS and traction control to reduce rear wheel slip and wheelies for controlled street riding performance.

The Supermoto ride mode (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.

The Supermoto ABS mode is integrated into the ride mode. In the Supermoto mode, ABS only functions on the front wheel. So, the rider has control to lock up the rear wheel if needed for full supermoto performance.

In Supermoto mode, the lean angle functionality is disengaged allowing the rider to lean the motorcycle without any electronics intervention, nor does it detect any lifting of the front wheel.

  • Switchable ride modes → change the power characteristic and traction control on the fly
  • Striking new colours and graphics create a distinctive and progressive look
  • Brembo Monoblock front brake caliper on 701 Supermoto for exceptional brake performance

2024 Husqvarna 701 Supermoto Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Precisely engineered


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 3.4 gal (13 liter) fuel tank is perfectly positioned for the best possible weight distribution. Produced in a thermoplastic rotational moulding process, the single-piece construction weighs only 11.4 lbs (5.2 kg) and is made of high-strength polyamide.

WP fork

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 monoshock

The fully adjustable WP APEX rear shock absorber features rebound damping adjustment as well as a high and low compression damping adjustment. The 240 mm rear wheel travel guarantees perfect control in every condition, be it on tight and twisty mountain roads or in crowded city centers.


A masterpiece


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.

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.


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.


Perfect control


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


Exceptional stopping power with improved brake feel and controllability are available at the rider’s request thanks to the radially mounted 4 piston Brembo caliper and Ø 320 mm floating disc at the front, and the single piston caliper, Ø 240 mm floating disc at the rear. The latest cornering sensitive ABS technology from Bosch guarantees maximum braking confidence.

Slipper clutch

The APTC (Adler Power Torque Clutch) from 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. The rider thus enjoys maximum control and perfect down-shifting.

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.


Premium technology


Sleek, modern bodywork is ergonomically designed to connect the rider to the motorcycle and allow for unrestricted movement in all situations. The riding experience is further enhanced by the extended seat, which reaches over the radiator shrouds for improved grip and control in tighter corners.

CNC-machined triple clamps

The anodized 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 behavior of the front end to the rider.

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. Optional Supermoto ABS mode is also available. In the Supermoto mode, ABS only functions on the front wheel and the rider then has control to lock up the rear wheel if needed for full Supermoto performance.
