Husqvarna’s new 2017-model 701 ENDURO is fitted with the most powerful single-cylinder engine ever developed by the firm, with 6BHP more power and 3.0 Nm more torque, as well as a fresh new look.
Both the 692.7cc single cylinder 701 ENDURO and its 701 SUPERMOTO sibling are equipped with a new-generation engine that features the latest technology in terms of design and electronics, putting out 74BHP at 8000 rpm and torque of 71 Nm at 6750 rpm.
With reliability a key factor, the use of innovative solutions such as the active evacuation and forced lubrication of the crankcase ensure long 10,000km service intervals. All the latest engine advances provide an extremely low fuel consumption that along with the lengthy service intervals massively reduces the cost of ownership in the long run.
Smooth power delivery is guaranteed by the state-of-the-art four-valve cylinder head with its twin spark ignition. With the single overhead camshaft technology allowing for more exact valve timing at higher engine speeds, Husqvarna engineers added an extra 1000rpm of usable power to the engine. For increased comfort and less vibrations the engine also features a second counter balancer shaft.
The Keihin electronic fuel injection features a new 50mm throttle body that has no mechanical linkage to the throttle grip and offers better throttle response and ride-ability at small throttle valve positions. It will be available in October.
