2019 Husqvarna 701 Enduro
Like its cousin, the KTM 690 Enduro R, the 701 Enduro promises to be the ultimate off-road-capable street motorcycle. Its 693cc single is suspended from a lightweight steel frame with a self-supporting polyamide rear subframe that houses the integrated 3.4-gallon gas tank.

Fully adjustable WP suspension front and rear offers 10.8 inches of travel, while switchable Bosch ABS is mated to big 300mm front and 240mm rear floating discs.
Rounding it out is a ride-by-wire throttle, a 6-speed gearbox with a Magura hydraulic clutch lever and slipper clutch, electric start and black DID spoked wheels.
The 2019 Husqvarna 701 Enduro is priced at $11,899 and is available in dealerships this month.
2019 Husqvarna 701 Supermoto
If your tastes run more toward canyon carving than dirty adventures, the 701 Supermoto is your huckleberry. It features the same potent liquid-cooled 693cc single and steel frame with polyamide subframe and integrated gas tank, while its adjustable WP suspension has a more road-oriented 8.5-/9.8-inch travel front/rear.
Beefier 4-piston Brembo front and single-piston rear calipers bite down on a big 320mm disc up front and a 240mm at the rear.
Other features like the ride-by-wire, 6-speed transmission, hydraulic clutch lever and slipper clutch are also shared with the Enduro. However, the Supermoto is fitted with 17-inch Giant tubeless spoked wheels and sticky Continental ContiAttack Supermoto tires that promise exceptional grip even at the extreme lean angles typical of supermoto riding.
The 2019 Husqvarna 701 Supermoto is priced at $11,899 and is available in dealerships this month.
Whats new for the 2019 701 supermoto?
They are returning models with no changes (we revised the text accordingly).
How is going to waste their money on 2019 model when you can buy a low mileage 2018 for £1000-1,500 less???
The people you are going to buy your 2019 for 1,000-1,500 less.
People who are going to buy it brand new, one, don’t care about an extra $1000. That could be said for any new thing where a previous model exists. And two, want to buy the bike new so they can properly break it in and not hope that the previous owner did things correctly. Especially on this bike, where it comes with synthetic oil… not great for properly breaking in your rings and getting them to seal. Buy an 18 if you want one that has sat around a shop for a year and a half.
Do you know when the 701 enduro Will arriwe to skandinavia?
Stunning bike !!!
Rocky mountain MC stated that the 2019 suspension was an improvement over 2018 model
Thanks for the info. I however see no point in spending extra on a bike that’s exactly the same as the 18 and some shops still have 18s in stock.
The bike looks mint. Black rims are awesome. Biggest question super motor or enduro?
