Husqvarna Motorcycles Australia has released a video proving the long distance capabilities of its 701 Enduro LR.
The LR, suitably standing for Long Range, stands out from the 701 line-up with its hefty 25-litre fuel tank (+12L compared to standard).
For 2020, the 701 gains new graphics and standard equipment upgrades, with features like new switchable rider modes, Bosch cornering ABS, and lean-angle sensitive traction control.
The steel trellis frame has also been tweaked, and a new lightweight aluminium swingarm is featured.
“The Husqvarna Motorcycles 701 Enduro LR has recently been launched with a strong marketing message tailored specifically to suit Australian riders,” said Husqvarna in a press release.
“However, what is a marketing slogan other than just words?
“We decided to put this message to the test and sent two riders on a four-day long range adventure to experience first-hand how the 701 Enduro LR stands up in Australian conditions.”
