Rack back

Husky 701 got a new rear rack installed. The beautiful workmanship and attention to details are second to none with Perun Moto’s rear rack. Recommended for all 701 riders!

Car Bon

Carbon, car-bon, rrrrr. I’m spoiled with a little nice shiny bit of carbon on my Husky 701 Enduro. Wings heat shield fits in very nicely with the Wings exhaust, in matching carbon bits. Light, protective, noice!

One + One = 1402

This may be the first ever private paparazzi shot of Husqvarna 1402 😉 At least haven’t seen any two privately owned 701 Enduro’s in the same shot before, so we of course did it with my riding buddy.

A bunch of us went riding last weekend, through some nice wintery backroads, some of them uncared for – so it was a nice workout plowing through ankle deep new snow roads. Destination local amateur enduro race where our friend was partaking with a two-stroker. We parked an ad-hoc 701 show near the start line and basked in the sunlight, as did these fine bikes.

It was a first proper outing with my 701 and after about 150km of winter riding I am well pleased. The motor and fuel map are really good, soft at the bottom without any on-off jerking around, near impossible to make the bike stumble – a really well sorted out fueling. Suspension seems overall good, I have no complaints so far at all, but snow makes roads kinda soft and easy for the suspension, so I’m not going to praise it more before hitting some real rugged roads and trails.

All in all, a nice step upwards and onwards from KTM690 (because we all tend to compare this to it, all the time) 🙂

Because sound matters

Motorcycle sound is not about being loud, not for me, it’s the tone & character that draw my attention. With that in mind, I ordered a Wings exhaust silencer from Slovenia, because I know their silencers are exceptional good titanium value for money, and sound very nice.

They don’t specifically make a dedicated Husky 701 exhaust, but because the 701 is essentially an evolution from KTM690, with 100% identical LC4 engine, the exhausts are inter-compatible without issues.

Installation was a breeze, and I was ready for a soundcheck in no time. Thumpers just like I want it, don’t need it any louder.
