Husqvarna has just announced the release of its new 701 Enduro LR for 2020.
Building on the success of its standard 701 Enduro, the only significant change for the LR model is that it gets a massive 25 litre fuel tank. And according to Husky, it’s perfect for extended, adrenaline-filled on or off-road adventures – and will manage up to 500km (around 310 miles) before you have to refuel.
The 701 Enduro LR is powered by the same 74hp single-cylinder 692.7 cc engine as its shorter range sibling – and comes with cornering ABS, lean angle sensitive traction control, switchable ride modes and an easy shift as standard. It also comes fitted with fully adjustable 48mm WP XPLOR upside-down forks and a WP XPLOR rear shock – which offers 250mm of wheel travel.
Lightweight, integrated fuel tanks – additional 12-litre capacity, +/- 500 km range
Switchable Ride Modes – change power characteristics while riding
Bosch cornering ABS – lean angle specific braking technology
Easy Shift function – seamless up- and down shifting for a smoother ride
Lean-angle sensitive Motorcycle Traction Control – perfect rear wheel traction
Chromium-molybdenum steel trellis frame – amazing agility and stability
Aluminium swingarm – extremely low weight for maximum traction and stability
Polyamide rear subframe with integrated fuel tank – high-tech, single-piece construction
Priced at £10,699, the 2020 701 Enduro LR is far from cheap. But you get what you pay for in this world, and there’s no denying it’s a seriously capable machine. Could it be the perfect round the world machine? Only time will tell. For more information on the Husqvarna 701 Enduro LR, click HERE.
