hey y’all, have a 401 and looking for a bigger longer traveling bike also. Recently enjoyed a track day and think the supermoto 701 may be in my future. My question is, how much of the 701 supermoto is shared with 701 vitpilen? They do not discount the SUMO and I can usually get 3 to 4k off the vit. Wondering if I should be getting a vit and modding it up a bit.
I think the savings would be minimal there. Also not that means anything or makes sense, but really trying to support the Husqvarna side of it. I love that even knowledgeable bike folk are excited to see a Husky in the street. I guess what I was getting at….Is the frame on the SUMO different that 701? Brakes? Front and rear suspension? I see the swingarm is different.
Frame and suspension and brakes are different. Actually probably only the engine and misc. Bits are the same.the performance is probably negligible between the two though. So the big difference would be looks ergos and cost for you to decide
