EXCLUSIVE EDITIONS OF HUSQVARNA VITPILEN 701, 701 SUPERMOTO AND 701 ENDURO LR CREATED TO MARK COLLABORATION WITH ITALIAN CASUAL CLOTHING BRAND
MATTIGHOFEN, AUSTRIA – May 4, 2021 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Husqvarna Motorcycles and premium Italian casual clothing brand, REPLAY make perfect teammates with both brands being renowned for stylish, high-end products and a flair for innovation.
The partnership started in 2020 with the REPLAY logo proudly displayed on Husqvarna Motorcycles’ official Moto3 machines. It marked the beginning of a new chapter for both Husqvarna Motorcycles and REPLAY, as Husqvarna Motorcycles re-entered the Moto3 World Championship, while REPLAY took a strategic step into the motorcycle sector.
Recently, the REPLAY collaboration has inspired a limited edition of just 10 machines with exclusive components and graphics. The strictly one-off run features the Vitpilen 701, 701 Supermoto and 701 Enduro LR. Each special edition has a new colour scheme and logos reflecting the Husqvarna Motorcycles and REPLAY branding.
The sporty lines of the Vitpilen 701 are accentuated by the new colours created for the REPLAY edition. The special version of this dynamic roadster, with its punchy, large-capacity single-cylinder engine and lightweight chassis, also features Technical Accessories from the Husqvarna Motorcycles catalogue. The Vitpilen 701’s singularity of purpose and spartan aesthetic are unmistakable in this special edition.
On top of new colours and graphics, the 701 Supermoto features also special Technical Accessories from Husqvarna Motorcycles for the REPLAY edition. Furthermore, the machine delivers a class-leading power-to-weight ratio and unrivalled agility with its 74 hp single-cylinder engine and 148 kg state-of-the-art chassis.
The super-versatile 701 Enduro LR ‘long range’ also receives the REPLAY treatment with a new colour scheme and a host of Husqvarna Motorcycles Technical Accessories. With nearly twice the fuel capacity of the standard 701 Enduro, the LR model takes intrepid riders even further, on-road and off.
To experience the unmistakable joy of riding Husqvarna motorcycles, these limited REPLAY edition models will soon be handed out to selected celebrities.
As well as the limited REPLAY editions, there will also be a special run of machines from Husqvarna Motorcycles with unique graphics to mark the collaboration with REPLAY. Look out for these in a number of REPLAY pop-up stores scheduled to appear internationally in Europe and Japan.
As expected from Husqvarna Motorcycles and REPLAY there is much more to come over the next few months, with a series of exciting initiatives reflecting the values of innovation and style shared by the premium brands.
