The Husqvarna 701 Supermoto will be getting an update for the 2017 model year, with both bikes receiving the updated 690cc single-cyliner engine that is currently found in the new-generation KTM 690 Duke. Husqvarna says that the new motor adds 1,000 rpm to the redline, and the new Keihin fuel injection system has a 50 mm throttle body that has no mechanical linkage to the throttle grip, for true ride-by-wire technology.
