Husqvarna launches 701 Supermoto teaser campaign

First glance at the new Husky Supermotoriding on ice

HUSQVARNA has launched a teaser campaign for its 701 Supermoto, which so far includes a micro-site and short video of the new model.

It’s not the first time we’ve seen the bike since it was already officially unveiled at EICMA last year, but the short video shows the motard riding across an ice lake with studded tyres before the campaign’s slogan ‘In Search of the Essence’ pops up on screen.

The firm plans to put the new Husky on sale late this summer and will likely be in a similar price bracket to the £7,899 KTM 690 SMC R, since the bikes are mechanically identical.

Both machines use KTM’s 690cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, which punches out a healthy 67hp and a respectable of torque.

Like the KTM, the 701 Supermoto also gets ABS, a slipper clutch, fly-by-wire throttle and switchable engine modes. The Husky does get an extra two litres of fuel capacity (14l vs 12l) and different plastics which explains the 145kg dry weight figure, 5kg more than the KTM.
