According to their show press conference, the new bike is designed to tap into the raw experience of riding older bikes married to modern design and technology.

Powered by a 74bhp four-stroke single-cylinder engine and sprung on WP suspension, the impressive looking bike is due to arrive in dealers in early 2019 and follows a similar format to the existing Husqvarna Vitpilen 701 launched earlier this year.

Offering a stripped-back, no-nonsense approach to motorcycle design, the bike features the latest in electronic wizardry, including switchable Bosch ABS mated to Brembo brakes, an up and down quickshifter and ride-by-wire throttle.

This is all housed within minimalist bodywork and a high-end alloy steel trellis frame, which claims to provide a more precise handling package in all riding conditions.
