The fearsome 2020 Husqvarna 701 Enduro LR will be arriving on U.S. shores! Husqvarna Motorcycles North America just confirmed that the trail-focused 701 Enduro will now be available for serious long-range dual sport riders. And, for a price tag that seems fair. Headlight, mirrors, turn signals, license plate holder, impressive range, and serious off-road chops combine to create this latest generation Husky dual sport moto.
Like the 701 Enduro model, the 701 Enduro LR features a punchy 692.7cc single-cylinder engine, with fast and responsive power delivery. It delivers the grunt exactly when and where you need it! In terms of actual power, this moto puts out 74 hp at 8,000 rpm and a peak torque figure of 54 lb.-ft. at 6,500. It’s more than enough for nervous off-roaders and seasoned professionals alike.
The 701 Enduro LR Rolling Chassis
It’s made better by the bike’s agile nature. Thanks to the lightweight Chromium-molybdenum steel trellis frame and practical hardware, the 701 Enduro LR can navigate tough terrain. The LR features fully-adjustable 48 mm WP XPLOR USD forks up front, twinned with a sophisticated WP XPLOR shock at the rear. The combination of the smooth and powerful engine with nimble handling makes for an exciting off-road package.
But wait, there’s more…
701 Enduro LR Technology
To make the Husky 701 Enduro LR the ultimate enduro machine, Husqvarna fitted this beast with cornering ABS from Bosch, lean-angle sensitive traction control, a responsive Ride-by-Wire system, selectable ride modes, and Easy Shift technology (Husky’s fancy name for a slipper clutch) as standard. But, what sets the LR-designated models apart from the crowd is the addition of a tour-extending 6.6-gallon fuel capacity.
For riders who like to get down and dirty, but can also appreciate a fine asphalt corner, the Husqvarna 701 Enduro LR is worthy of your attention. Especially if you’re looking for something that can give you an adrenaline rush under any and all circumstances.
It’s more than a KTM in different colors.
Pricing and Availability
And for the price? The 2020 Husqvarna 701 Enduro LR has an MSRP of $12,499. If you’re not daunted by the price, you can find them in authorized Husqvarna Motorcycle dealerships in the fall.
