Husqvarna unveiled the 2020 701 Enduro and Supermoto models at this year's EICMA show, revealing several additional electronic rider aids and slight revisions to the bodywork. The added features may not sound groundbreaking, but the 701 platform is an already-potent package.

Both 701 models will receive a rider-aid suite that includes two selectable riding modes, each tailoring on-throttle response with on-the-fly adjustments. There will also be two levels of lean-angle-sensitive traction control with the third option being off. Likewise, a new cornering ABS function controls brake pressure at the Brembo calipers, but can be fully disengaged for off-road use or hooning the streets. Finally, Husqvarna also included its Easy Shift function, which acts as an up-and-down quickshifter and reduces shift times for added performance.

And, of course, each model receives new graphics for the 2020 model year. The Supermoto, specifically, gets a unique gray accent that distinguishes it from previous years.

While seemingly subtle, the revisions made to the 701 models improve an already-exciting and entertaining platform to ride. Enduro or Supermoto.
