Motocross-type riding position, long-travel suspension, super-sticky street tyres and a powerful single-cylinder engine in a lightweight package. Sounds like our kind of fun!

Husqvarna have unveiled the 2017-spec 701 Supermoto, which seems to be a pretty wild ride. Yes, we love machines like the GSX-R1000 and ZX-14R and Panigale 1199R and the Hayabusa, but the Husky 701 is a different take on high-performance streetbikes - one that actually might be quite entertaining! The bike is powered by a Euro IV-compliant 693cc single-cylinder SOHC 4-valve engine that produces 74 horsepower and 71Nm of torque and has 10,000km service intervals. With Keihin electronic fuel-injection, forged aluminium piston, a new 50mm throttle body and ride-by-wire throttle, the engine revs free and hard, and is said to provide instant throttle response at any revs. And the latest Bosch ABS makes sure the bike stops as hard as it goes. Yes, this one should be wild...
