There are two riding modes – Mode 1 offers a sporty throttle response and cornering sensitive traction control while Mode 2 is focused for enduro riding providing a smooth throttle response with off-road traction control. It’s focused for enduro riding thanks to the fully adjustable 48 mm WP XPLOR upside-down forks and a WP XPLOR rear shock with Pro-Lever linkage, offering 250 mm of wheel travel.
The WP XPLOR fork provides a 250 mm wheel travel and has an open cartridge layout with a spring in each circuit. The damping functions are split – the left leg is dedicated to compression damping and right fork leg for rebound damping. The braking system is provided by Brembo – 300 mm disc with a twin-piston floating calliper on the front & 240 mm disc with the single-piston floating calliper on the rear. The enduro bike features cornering ABS thanks to two-channel Bosch 9.1 MP system and has a Supermoto mode.
Other features include lean-angle sensitive traction control, switchable ride modes and easy shift as standard. The Husqvarna 701 Enduro LR is equipped with a 12-litre front fuel tank and a 13-litre self-supporting rear subframe fuel tank which provides a total amount of 25 litres allowing a range of over 500 km. There’s an option to select the fuel supply with a switch mounted on the handlebar.
