The 2021 Husqvarna 701 Enduro LR: For Long-Range Adventures
Though it features absolutely no updates from 2020, the LR variant of the 701 Enduro joins the ranks of the 2021 Husqvarna line-up. This European-made dual-sport motorcycle is almost identical to the base model 701 Enduro, but with some key differences that make it better suited to real adventure riding—but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a blast on it within the city limits. It’s the same versatile Husqvarna motorcycle as before, but now it features Long Range capabilities.
Yes, the LR designation stands for “Long Range” and it means more than just a few extra letters. The 701 Enduro LR boasts an extra fuel tank in the form of a specially designed, single-piece polyamide front tank that increases the overall fuel capacity by 12 liters, bringing the bike’s total to 25 liters. In real terms, that’s over 310 miles of usable range.
Other extras include an additional 250 mm of travel on the front suspension, an ever so slightly higher saddle height, and a bit of extra weight caused by the additional tank. Apart from that, the 701 Enduro LR is the same as the base model, complete with a powerful 692.7 cc single-cylinder engine, with 74 horsepower and 52.3 lb-ft of torque, and all of the hardware and riding aids that go along with it.
For 2021, the 701 Enduro LR is only available in Husqvarna’s company colors of white with yellow and blue details.
The 2021 Husqvarna 701 Enduro LR is expected to start at around $12,399 USD / $13,999 CAD.
