Husqvarna have unveiled a new concept for a faired sporty single at EICMA 2018. The Husqvarna Vitpilen 701 Aero is a retro-inspired motorbike built around the firm’s Vitpilen 701 model.
The bike adds a café racer style fairing to the large capacity Vitpilen (Swedish for white arrow) which was already Husqvarna’s sportier roadgoing bike.
Although the bike is largely unchanged from the donor machine, Husqvarna say the fairing changes the position of the cockpit and encourages a sportier riding position.
Husqvarna like to blend the old with the new, and the Aero is no exception. Housed within the old-school fairing is a unique round TFT display with ‘several interface elements’ according to Husky.
