New for 2017, off-road favourites Husqvarna will be upgrading their 701 Supermoto and Enduro models in order to follow Euro4 regulations for motorcycles. What are Euro4 motorcycle regulations? The ruling on emissions for new models of motorbikes are a part of wider legislation on the manufacture and classification of bikes, including requirements for manufacturers to conform to much stricter regulations on not only carbon-monoxide and other emissions, but also ABS braking, on-board diagnostics, and anti-tamper systems.
The new motorcycles are to be powered by a single-cylinder engine which will
deliver another 6HP and 3.0Nm of torque compared to the previous model.
These upgraded engines will have a power output of 74 hp (55kW) at
8,000 rpm and torque of 71.9Nm at 6750 rpm.

These upgraded engines will also provide low fuel consumption for riders which will help reduce running costs. The 701 Enduro and 701 Supermoto will have 13 litre fuel cells, Bosch ABS, Brembo brakes, WP suspension, and weigh 145kg dry. Both models will be shown at INTERMOT 2016 at the Husqvarna Motorcycles booth, Hall 09.1 booth 025.
