Husqvarna Is About To Release The Most Beautiful Cafe Racer
And they can take all of my money.
Believe it or not, we do have a taste for motorcycles here at Shifting Lanes. More accurately, we like pretty things when we see them.
Finally confirming to be released next year is a concept that debuted about three years ago as the Vitpilen 401, the Vitpilen twins include a 701 powerplant as well. Colloquially known as cafe racers, these stripped-down, single-cylinder bikes feature sleek, throwback styling with a distinct lack of fairings.
The arrival of this motorcycle is exciting and curious as it will be Husqvarna's first street-only offering. Under the direction of KTM, we're sure the product will be right--but the price point? Given the MSRP of current Husqvarna models such as the 701 Enduro, it could be well within the five-figure range. For those looking to stand out from the crowd, though, the Swedish big single will get the job done.
