Husqvarna 701

KTM has finally acknowledged the common slave clutch issue affecting most of the KTM LC4 690cc single-cylinder engines.

The Mattighofen factory has issued a worldwide recall of KTM and Husqvarna motorcycles that feature the LC4 engine.

The matter at hand focused on the gasket on the clutch slave cylinder that may have been damaged at the manufacturing stage.

The affected gasket could cause the clutch to become malfunction when the clutch lever is pulled in.

However, we are a bit surprised that it took this long for KTM to react despite acknowledging the problem since 2018.

According to the documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the US, the recall involved certain 2018-2020 models which includes:

  • KTM 690 Duke (2018-2019)
  • KTM 690 Enduro (2018-2020)
  • KTM 690 SMC R (2019-2020)
  • Husqvarna 701 Enduro LR (2020)
  • Husqvarna 701 Supermoto (2018-2020)
  • Husqvarna 701 Enduro (2018-2020)
  • Husqvarna Svartpilen 701 (2019-2020)
  • Husqvarna Vitpilen 701 (2018-2020)

  • Beberapa gambar intipan motosikal roadster naked Husqvarna 701 Svartpilen telah tersebar di atas talian dalam beberapa hari ini.
  • Melihat pada gambarnya, ianya telah disahkan sebagai 701 berdasarkan nombor yang tertera pada tempat letak kaki motosikal ini.
  • Motosikal 701 ini sedang diuji tampak seperti sebuah 701 yang diperhalusi dengan ilham dari motosikal 401.


Some spy photos of the Husqvarna 701 Svartpilen naked roadster has been going around the internet these past few days.

Based on the photos, it was confirmed that it is indeed a 701 based on the numbers indicated on the footrest of the bike.

The 701 currently being tested looks like a much more refined 701 with a few inspirations from its younger 401 sibling.
