Eicma 2018: Husqvarna unveil Vitpilen 701 Aero concept

Husqvarna have unveiled a new concept for a faired sporty single at EICMA 2018. The Husqvarna Vitpilen 701 Aero is a retro-inspired motorbike built around the firm’s Vitpilen 701 model.


The bike adds a café racer style fairing to the large capacity Vitpilen (Swedish for white arrow) which was already Husqvarna’s sportier roadgoing bike.

The Aero's fairing houses a smart TFT dash

Although the bike is largely unchanged from the donor machine, Husqvarna say the fairing changes the position of the cockpit and encourages a sportier riding position.

Husqvarna like to blend the old with the new, and the Aero is no exception. Housed within the old-school fairing is a unique round TFT display with ‘several interface elements’ according to Husky.
