Husqvarna Motorcycles are proud to take the covers off the production Vitpilen 701 machine, while also introducing the all-new Svartpilen 701 concept motorcycle at EICMA. With the brand continuing to take steps towards fulfilling their progressive vision of street motorcycling, both models are on display for the duration of the show in Italy.
The Husqvarna Vitpilen 401, Svartpilen 401 and Vitpilen 701 will also be unveiled in Australia at the Sydney Motorcycle Show on Friday the 24th of November at 12.30pm on the Husqvarna Motorcycles Stand, but for now here’s a sneak peak.
Forming new additions to Husqvarna’s exciting range of ‘Real Street’ motorcycles, these new machines are powered by robust yet sophisticated single-cylinder motors that are housed within a minimalistic layout. Both motorcycles have been created to provide a genuine riding experience.

Inspired by the same unique design approach that runs through the whole Vitpilen family, the Vitpilen 701 embodies Husqvarna’s progressive vision for innovative and accessible street motorcycles.
Simultaneously launched at this year’s EICMA show is the Svartpilen 701 concept machine. Inspired by the resurgence of the iconic flat track scene, the new Svartpilen 701 is a progressive single-cylinder motorcycle that is designed to deliver an authentic riding experience.
The Vitpilen 701 is the highlight of Husqvarna´s re-entry into the street motorcycling segment. Impressing both the media and the public during its first launch as a prototype in 2015, it has now reached production and is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2018.
Bringing about a new era of motorcycling for the sophisticated urban traveler, the Vitpilen 701 mixes enjoyable performance for novice and expert riders with a simple yet progressive design and a unique style. Largely inspired by the brand’s Swedish heritage, the Vitpilen 701 is a modern motorcycle that features some of the most state-of-the-art technology available.
From the trellis frame to the powerful single cylinder motor or the standard WP suspension and Brembo brakes, this machine is bristling with premium components.

2018 Husqvarna Svartpilen 701
The Svartpilen 701 concept machine is a dark street explorer that is free of excess and reduced to its simplest form. This machine aims to appeal to a new generation of motorcyclists and those preferring a simpler, timeless design approach.
Featuring a technologically-advanced 4-stroke single-cylinder engine that is housed in an incredibly stripped down but progressive layout, it combines excellent performance with an authentic style. As accessible as a motorcycle can be, it’s a modern and innovative naked bike waiting to offer a raw and exhilarating experience on two wheels.
Also on display at this year’s EICMA will also be Husqvarna’s Vitpilen 401 and Svartpilen 401. Both of these models will be available in Australia in the second quarter of 2018.
