Reply To: choosing the vitpilen 701 over other single-cyl options


The 690Smc-r is basically the same as the 701 Supermoto, so if you like the hooligan supermoto thing then get one of them, they are fantastic bikes and unbelievably fun.

The Vitpilen 701 is slightly more refined with more tech as you mention but the main difference is the chassis and riding position. Engine is very similar with bags on low down grunty torque and it does retain some of the supermoto flickability.
