  Supermoto Dreaming...
2016 Husqvarna 701 Supermoto and 701 Enduro!

I'm liking the "claimed" HP on these. Haven't ridden a Husky since the 80's.

Husqvarna Motorcycles is diving back into the on-road segment in 2016 with two new large displacement single-cylinder models, the 701 Supermoto and 701 Enduro...

They look great, but wish they had the new motor from the 690 Duke. It is a game changer!

Surprisingly, the plastic subframe has not been an issue with their current lineup with VERY few reported broken examples out there. I wouldn't load it like an around the world bike on the back, but should be fine if you use Wolfman style,or Giant Loop style bags. Oh, and last I checked it's the same engine as the 690.

Yes, the 690 Enduro and 2015 Duke, but the new 2016 Duke has a new motor with bigger bore, shorter stroke, and innovative new balancing, and 73HP!

Pete, where are you getting your info? It's the same engine for each, just the cam or valves are different for a different output. The output is only about 5hp difference between Husqvarna and the KTM version. The big differences in the bikes is the type of suspension you prefer.

Old Duke motor.
Aha! It's still early in the morning for me (I worked until 7am) and I kept interpreting that the 2016 KTM 690 Enduro is a different engine than the 2016 Husqvarna 501 and it's not, however I now see what Pete originally was trying to say. The new Duke engine is a different design than the Enduro engine. Thanks for clearing that up Bret!
