Saw this bike in person yesterday at the Motorcycle Live show in Birmingham UK. It looks very nice, the blue is deep and darker indoors than it looks on the outside photos. Pity they didn’t have any of the other 2020 bikes on the stand. When I asked, they said the rest of the 2020 bike would be at the London show in Feb.
Looks identical to the 2019 Svartpilen 701 “Style”.
Despite the original post here, I gotta say I’m actually a bit disappointed. I shouldn’t say disappointed, but more so just less amazed.
The Akront spoked wheels are apparently quite a bit heavier than the cast wheels. It does add a bit to the neo retro vibe, but o net it was a cost saving effort since barely any of these bikes are selling for near MSRP.
Also has different brake rotors carrier designs.
