Husqvarna Motorcycles presented the production SVARTPILEN 701 and VITPILEN 701 AERO concept models, while also unveiling the EE 5 electric minicycle at EICMA 2018. Further advancing their progressive vision of street motorcycling, Husqvarna Motorcycles also take a first step into electric mobility with the EE 5 machine.
Inspired by the resurgence of the iconic flat track scene, the all-new SVARTPILEN 701 production model marks the next step in Husqvarna Motorcycles’ return to the street. It is a modern and innovative naked bike completely free of excess that aims to appeal to an entirely new generation of motorcycle users.
Making its first global appearance at EICMA, the VITPILEN 701 AERO concept model pays tribute to an iconic era of motorcycling. Contrasting the lines of a classic faired racer with modern styling, it is a high-performance concept machine that offers a more race-oriented glimpse on Husqvarna Motorcycles’ future steps in the street segment.
Drawing on Husqvarna’s rich history in top-level motocross competition, the EE 5 is an electric minicycle that features a 5 kW electric motor and is designed for aspiring young riders starting out in the exciting world of dirt biking.
All three exciting new machines will be presented throughout the duration of the 2018 EICMA motorcycle show in Milan. These latest additions to the brand’s pioneering model line-up will be on display alongside the updated collection of dedicated street clothing and accessories, and full line-up of motocross, supermoto and enduro machines, on the Husqvarna Motorcycles booth, Hall 13, booth I-86.
