NYX_2966

The VITPILEN 701 is Husqvarna’s new street bike concept. It marks their return to street motorcycling and is the next step towards Husqvarna Motorcycles’ future vision. A sophisticated single-cylinder 4-stroke motor housed within a minimalistic yet high-tech layout – created to provide a raw, exhilarating and authentic riding experience. Functionality, simplicity and practicality were central to the basic idea and inspiration behind this bike. Its uniqueness is not limited to the aesthetics though, and will be instantly noticeable from the raw, natural and intuitive experience of riding it. The VITPILEN 701’s designers believed strongly that something fresh was long overdue in the motorcycling world, so they set out to create a bike that better captures the timeless thrill of the ride – with a level of simplicity that seems to have been lost amongst the flash, hype and hyperbole of modern motorcycle design. The VITPILEN 701 was created to reflect the progressive attitude and styling of a more modern and free-thinking breed of rider.

  • FUEL TANK

The primary function of this tank is to hold the fuel volume. Shaped for minimal intrusion into the rider’s natural riding position leg area, it provides a natural feel when seated. Fine attention to detail of the metallic finished tank sees it tastefully painted and subtly branded.

  • TANK TECH AREA

The fuel filler area has a precision-machined plate and closure. Above this is a tech area, which houses the start system as well as all other pre-ride control and selection functions.

  • EXHAUST AND BELLY PAN

The large diameter exhaust is straight-through and loud. It has a belly pan that acts both as a heat shield and a protector for the low-slung exhaust from road debris.

  • EXHAUST SILENCER

Made from aluminium and composite materials. The reverse cone at the rear has a unique design, created using sophisticated computational modelling to ensure maximum performance and unreal sound, with minimum weight and requiring the least possible amount of material. NYX_2969

  • REAR SPLIT WITH EXHAUST BRACKET

Visible from the side, a thin yellow line runs from the fuel tank and seat junction to the centre of the exhaust silencer. This is a central aluminium connector plate that fuses the rear section of the motorcycle with the front. It is a sturdy, simple and effective solution reminiscent of aerospace design.

  • CARBON COMPOSITE REAR SECTION

A one-piece carbon monocoque integrates the subframe, open-sided airbox and rear fender into one elegant structure that bolts onto the distinctive central aluminium connector plate.

  • SEAT

Sleek and minimal, this Neoprene moulded seat offers excellent grip, comfort and durability while remaining exceptionally discreet.

  • HEADLIGHT AND REAR LIGHT

Both the headlight and taillight are sleek, compact and functional. Their full LED construction makes them powerful, low maintenance and highly visible when lit up. The front light with its unmistakable signature shape is mounted onto an ultra – streamlined bracket.

  • DISPLAY

Taking cues from high-performance aircraft, the main part of the display is a circular dial sliced in half. With a clear and easily readable LED display surface, it has individual LED warning lights below the main dial for quick and simple notifications of the bike’s vital functions.

  • FOOTPEG UNIT

Slim and sporty, the footpeg unit has the rear brake lever integrated into it and is milled from high-grade aluminium, keeping it lightweight and strong, while delivering precise movement.

  • CLIP-ON BARS AND MACHINED CLAMPS

The unique bar mount and position balances the sporty posture of traditional street clip-ons, with a more relaxed naked-bike friendly riding position thanks to a slightly wider set bar sweep. This perfect balance is maintained by mounting the bars off the side of the top clamp, rather than below it.

While we don’t have any tech specs at the moment, we hope this prototype goes to production!
