MCN overall review verdict: Stripped-down café racers offer the purist of all riding experiences, but few entertain like the flattrack-styled Husqvarna Svartpilen 701. Weighing just 158.5kg dry it’s BMX-light, has flawless low speed manners and acres of knee-friendly legroom, but get it out of town and it’ll display the kind of tough playfulness in the corners and mono-wheeled lunacy down the straights, that would make a supermoto proud. Related: Husqvarna Svartpilen 701 recalled If you enjoy the slightly unhinged side of biking from time to time, you’ll love the Husky. It’s up there with the Ducati Hypermotard, Yamaha MT-07 and Bimota DB6 (how’s that for an obscure reference?) in the fun stakes and is as insane as a Yamaha MT-10, or Aprilia Tuono, but all the madness happens at lower speeds. It’s crisp, capable and exhilarating with a pounding single cylinder motor that’s more powerful and refined than it has any right to be. It’s not cheap, but what it lacks in metal, plastic and pistons, it makes up for in refinement, purity and sheer excitement. It’s brilliantly bonkers.
