Moin, moin! (==Hi!)
Today I received my Vitpilen 701. The ride is slightly modified.
– License plate holder: gone
– Mirrors: the nice small Huski ones mounted
– Hand protectors added
What is missing: A nice exhaust to come… ;->
Any hints? – Infos welcome.

Hey, congrats with the bike!
This is the first time I see someone installed the second option mirrors from Husqvarna.
For me it does not make THAT much (looks of the bike) difference to spend money on them.
I drove with the Svart401 with the end-bar mirrors, I drove with the 701 with the standard mirrors and I prefer the Husqvarna end-bar mirrors (standing UP).
The mirrors you have I did not test. Are they good? It seems for me that the problem of visualization stays: also blocked with your arms?
Did you test the end-bar mirrors, there the visualization is next to your arm and perfect! Happy to hear your thoughts.
Anyway! Enjoy your cool bike! It’s really nice!

Awesome! Welcome to the Forum. I Dig the mirrors.
As far as exhaust goes I am fairly partial to the De-cat and Lv10 From Leo-Vince, still not a whole lot of options out right now TBH. But I haven’t heard it in person. Regardless, sweet bike (of course) and im sure you are already in love with it.
Enjoy!February 13, 2019 at 9:31 pm #3482
the mirrors look incredibly well! The optics and haptic is so much better than the original.
Why I mounted them is that I love the hand protectors (see below). Because of this – and because I HATE bar end mirrors made me think about an other option… ;->
I haven’t driven the 701. Of course I don’t expect to see anything else as my hands/arms. – I don’t need mirrors but I have to mount them as law makes me to… 🙁
Acording to the muffler: As even the Acrapovic seems not to sound to well I am thinking about “modifying” the main muffler (*) and keeping the original “Endtopf” (*sorry, I don’t have a translation for it… 🙁 ).
I’ll have to spend some exploration on how to get the right sound. Leovince I think has a “Mitteltopf(*)” for the 701, don’t they?
I’ll first ride and see.
“mittelschalldämpfer” == middle silencer?

Here an other pic of the mirror – doesn’t it look sexy?!
OK! It has to be moved down a bit…

A photo I shot today.
The bike is standing in front of the rail of the Transrapid test track. The track is out of order since there was a huge accident in 2006.
You also see a maintainance vehicle. I was 5 min late as the guys entered the train and drove away after I shot the photo.
If I would have been 5min earlier I would have tried everything to ride with them.
P.S.: The Transrapid area looks surreal if you go there.
Could be a scene of Fallout 5, couldn’t it?
