Lovers of off-road bikes have certainly heard of Husqvarna, a Swedish brand, the history of which can be traced back one hundred years ago. They released their first motorcycle in 1903. That motorcycle was powered by a single-cylinder four-stroke 1.5-hp motor and the power was transmitted to the rear wheel via a direct belt drive.

In 1930, Husqvarna launched their 50 model driven with a single-cylinder overhead- valve 30-hp engine.

In 1953, Husqvarna rolled out the legendary Drombagen. The 75-kg motorcycle was driven with a single-cylinder two-stroke 9-hp motor and the power was transmitted through a three-speed gearbox. The motorcycle featured a closed tubular frame as well as a swingarm suspension of the rear wheel. It became the real off-road classics.

Since 1983, the Husqvarna designers started using a liquid cooling system for their engines.

If you are curious about the modern motorcycle line-up of Husqvarna, we offer you to view this 2020 Husqvarna review.

This new motorcycle from Husqvarna attracts attention with its aggressive appearance, advanced technology, and almost 70 hp. The 2019 Husqvarna 701 Supermoto boasts a compact chrome-molybdenum frame design.

The motorcycle’s fuel tank has a weird shape. The designers chose it to decrease the overall weight of the steel beast. The 1-cylinder engine with a compact cylinder head and steel valves features the Keihin electronic throttle injection. It ensures decent responsiveness and performance. The bike gets along with tough road conditions. The Bosch ABS system and highly-effective brakes will make your acquaintance with the motorcycle truly unforgettable.

Potential buyers note the extremely sharp control and amazing power of this motorcycle from Husqvarna. The developer has successfully implemented the latest high-tech engineering achievements in the motorcycle.

Equipped with titanium valves, the motor gives out up to 11.5 thousand revolutions. You can hardly complain at this bike’s traction. Moreover, exceptional performance is also ensured by the coordinated work of a responsive 5-speed gearbox and the smooth APTC clutch. The motorcycle also comes with a convenient electronic start system.

The developers utilized high-quality materials alongside advanced engineering technologies for the suspension. The large stroke of the shock absorbers will enable you to enjoy the striking controllability of the bike.

Husqvarna EE 5

If you are an eco-friendly motorcycle enthusiast, you can’t overlook the 2020 Husqvarna EE 5. That’s a new cutting-edge electric bike from the reputable Swedish producer. The developer ascertains that in terms of performance the electric two-wheeled vehicle goes on a par with conventional 50-cc motorbikes. Apart from its evident eco-friendliness, the new electric motorcycle doesn’t require refueling. Moreover, it’s exceptionally quiet.

The EE 5 boasts a modern electric motor with an external rotor integrated into a durable frame. A lithium-ion battery with an energy consumption of 907 W appears to be a sufficient energy source for all of its systems. If you drive it at a normal pace, you can enjoy your eco-friendly journey for two hours. On the contrary, an aggressive driving style will eat up the whole charge of the batter for just 25 minutes. The rider can choose between six riding modes.

The motorcycle’s chassis features reliable WP components that drastically increase handling. Sufficient damping performance is ensured by the rear and front fork mono-shock absorbers.
