Husqvarna Svartpilen 701 Style | A new Husky streetbike

Husqvarna’s entry to the streetbike market is widening with the Austrian manufacturer unveiling overnight another take on the already quite avant-garde Svartpilen 701 with a spin-off model called the Svartpilen 701 Style.

The Svartpilen 701 Style is even a little more radical than the model it is based on with  what Husky are calling ‘appealing future “derivatives” for a ‘Special edition’ of the Svartpilen platform within the brand’s existing colours framework’.

Yeah I don’t know what they are on about with that obfuscation either… But here, let them continue, make of it yourself what you will…

Several solutions were worked on during the design phase, but bronze was the colour of choice and was so striking, the decision was taken to make the model more widely available.

The bike is a mix of technicality and premium aesthetics. The matt silver and high gloss black reinforce the original “Special edition” plan for this bike, supported by graphics that are a creative mix of the #svartpilen701 production model and the original #svartpilen701 show bike. Several parts were added, like the bar end mirrors, which lower the bike’s visual appearance and make it look a little meaner.

The spoked wheels are a qualitative add-on, giving the bike a more rugged look, while the CNC-machined footpegs add an extra touch of premium quality and attention to detail.

Aluminium badges were added on the tank “pills” to support the high-end livery and also offer protection for the tank covers.

This new addition to Husqvarna Motorcycles’ street range is uniquely stylish, and like the #svartpilen701 model it evolved from, it is there to re-ignite a passion for motorcycling through the raw and exhilarating experience of riding it.
