Husqvarna partners with Replay for an exclusive line of motorcycles

Posted on Leave a comment

Exclusive editions of Husqvarna Vitpilen 701, 701 Supermoto and 701 Enduro LR created to mark collaboration with Italian casual clothing brand.

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.

Florian Burguet – Vice President Global Marketing Husqvarna Motorcycles: “Collaborating with REPLAY has given Husqvarna Motorcycles the perfect opportunity to establish a relationship with a brand with which we have many shared values. REPLAY’s focus on producing premium quality products, their progressive, forward-thinking approach to development and their flair for innovation sets them apart from others in the fashion world. We are proud to have the REPLAY logo adorn our Moto3 machines for the second year since our return to World Championship road racing. We look forward to continuing our productive relationship with REPLAY.”

Matteo Sinigaglia – CEO Fashion Box SpA: “Forming a close partnership with Husqvarna Motorcycles allows REPLAY to step forward in the motorcycle world together with a brand that is known for its commitment to innovation and progression, the perfect partner for us to stand beside. Creating authentic experiences is something we value highly – a belief shared by Husqvarna Motorcycles and something that is key to developing the strong link between our two brands.”

Husqvarna Vektorr and Bltz E-mobility concepts unveiled

Posted on Leave a comment

Husqvarna Motorcycles is entering the electric powered-two wheeler (PTW) mobility space with a slew of offerings. Motorad Gears had covered the E-Pilen prototype launch – an electric motorcycle. Now, they have showcased the Vektorr and Bltz concepts, further expanding their zero-emissions product range.

Husqvarna Motorcycles is going forward into the future with a zero-emissions product range to broaden the brand’s appeal to existing riders as well as a whole new audience.

It has always been the aim of Husqvarna Motorcycles to develop new products accessible to the broadest possible spectrum of riders. The E-mobility range will retain and continue the riding pleasure and dynamics refined through the long history and experience of the brand.

The current Husqvarna Motorcycles street range is already known for being progressive, smart, dynamic and purely design oriented. These values will continue to be hallmarks of the E-mobility line.

VEKTORR CONCEPT –

Husqvarna Motorcycles reveals the Vektorr Concept. It offers a tantalising vision of what Husqvarna Motorcycles’ move into electric urban mobility will look like.

The Vektorr Concept is the first electric scooter ever produced by Husqvarna Motorcycles and is aimed squarely at the urban commuter who demands a compact, stylish and effective personal transport solution to fit their busy lifestyle. Styled and ridden like a conventional scooter, the Vektorr Concept will deliver a top speed of 45 km/h and offer a range of up to 95 km.

The Vektorr Concept is an eco-friendly model that brings the future of personal urban transport into the present.

BLTZ CONCEPT –

Furthermore, Husqvarna Motorcycles unveils the Bltz Concept. It makes convenient, clean travel easy with a stand-up scooter. The rider stands on the Bltz Concept, which offers rapid transit from A to B in busy city environments in a noise and emissions-free package.

The Bltz Concept will offer a range of 40 km and with the power output of 0.5 kW it will deliver a top speed of 20 km/h.

Development of the E-Mobility range is well-advanced and reflects the forward-thinking innovation that has seen Husqvarna Motorcycles set benchmarks for quality, aesthetics and performance for more than a century.

The expansion into E-Mobility is also reflected in an expanded dealer network. Husqvarna Motorcycles is actively searching for qualified dealers in large metropolitan areas in Europe, focusing on Spain, France, Italy and Germany.

MOTORAD GEARS TAKE

These models are the first in a series based on a common 48 Volt electric two-wheeler platform in the power range 4 to 11 kW for planned serial production in India. KTM E-Technologies GmbH provides in-house E-mobility expertise at the highest level including the development of proprietary electric drive systems & battery platforms.


Pierer Mobility has its eyes set on the lucrative EUR 10 bn addressable premium market in Europe for the electric two-wheeler segment by 2025.
