The Husqvarna Svartpilen 701 has been spotted testing again in Europe. The bike was spied for the first time in May, last year.

Just like the Vitpilen 701, the Svartpilen comes with an all-LED lighting system, and a digital instrument cluster.

Unlike last year’s test mule, this motorcycle features slightly different design. The wheels are alloy and are shod with block-pattern tyres. In fact, the design of this test mule is more in line with the concept version Husqvarna displayed at the 2017 EICMA show in November. The seat is flat, and the footpegs are rear-set.

Motorcycle News (MCN) reports that the front might be an 18-inch wheel; and that the bike is likely to employ the Vitpilen 701’s mill. The KTM 690 Duke-derived 692.7 cc single cylinder mill with liquid cooling and fuel injection makes 74.7 PS. Peak torque of 72 Nm comes in at 6,750 rpm. The motorcycle will reportedly feature a quick shifter, auto-blipper, and traction control.

Suspension bits include WP upside-down front fork, and WP link-type monoshock at the rear. The motorcycle comes to a halt using disc brake on both ends, with dual-channel ABS. MCN reports that the production version is likely to be unveiled in November, this year, and will enter the market in Spring 2019. The price tag will reportedly be similar to Vitpilen 701, which costs GBP 8,899.
