Husqvarna revealed a new street legal 701 Supermoto, the final production version of the concept model unveiled at last year’s EICMA show.

Sporting a version of the KTM 690 SMC R’s Single, the 701 claims an output of 67 hp, more than enough to have some fun with the claimed weight of 320 pounds.

The 701 Supermoto comes with ride-by-wire throttle control, WP Suspension components, anti-lock brakes and an APTC slipper clutch.

The bad news is Husqvarna says the 701 won’t arrive in showrooms until autumn 2015.
