701 SUPERMOTO 2016
The essence of riding

With close to 70 hp, advanced electronics and a state-of-the-art chassis, the 145 kg 701 Supermoto captures the thrill of the race track and brings the pure riding essence of Supermoto to the street.

Features and Benefits

The single overhead cam, liquid cooled, single cylinder engine features the latest in design and electronic technology. An outstanding maximum power output of 49 kW (67 hp) at 7,000 rpm and torque of 67 Nm at 6,500 rpm leave the rider in no doubt of the performance packed inside this lightweight unit
Cylinder head
The compact design of the single overhead cam cylinder head features 40 mm steel intake valves weighing just 48 g thanks to their hollow stem design, and 34 mm exhaust valves weighing 46.5 g. Ignition is via a double spark plug layout, each of which has an individual ignition timing control for optimal fuel combustion in the large bore combustion chamber. Refined engine behaviour and optimum power delivery are the results.
Ride-by-wire throttle
The Keihin electronic fuel injection system features a 46 mm throttle body with no mechanical linkage to the throttle grip. As the rider twists the throttle open or closed, the throttle valve is electronically controlled by the engine management system (EMS). The EMS continuously compares engine parameters with data from sensors, and adjusts the throttle valve accordingly, resulting in perfect power delivery and throttle response.
A lightweight 6 speed gearbox with smooth and precise shifting gives riders perfect control and confidence even in extreme conditions
Black anodised Giant tubeless spoked wheels are lightweight and strong. The 17" wheels are shod with Continental ContiAttack Supermoto 120/70 and 160/60 tyres front and rear respectively for extraordinarily light handling and exceptional control at all lean angles.
Engine maps
Three engine maps are available and can be selected via a switch under the seat. Riders can choose between "Standard", "Soft" and "Advanced" engine setups according to riding conditions
Amazing stopping power and control are available at the rider's demand thanks to the radially mounted 4 piston Brembo calliper and floating disc at the front, and the single piston calliper, floating disc at the rear (320 and 240 mm diameters respectively). The latest ABS technology from Bosch with Supermoto mode guarantees maximum safety and total confidence.
Slipper clutch
The APTC (Adler Power Torque Clutch) from Adler allows for greater speeds going into and coming out of corners by maximising rear wheel grip under hard acceleration as well as preventing rear wheel instability and hopping when braking hard into the apex of a turn. The rider thus enjoys maximum control and perfect down-shifting.
The lightweight trellis frame is made of high-grade chromium-molybdenum steel. It has been developed to ensure precise handling and instil complete confidence in the rider. Detailed feedback is transmitted to the rider thanks to precisely calculated torsional rigidity and longitudinal flex.
Polyamide rear subframe and tank
The self-supporting rear subframe with integrated 13 litre fuel tank is perfectly positioned for the best possible weight distribution. Produced in a thermoplastic rotational moulding process, the single-piece construction weighs only 5.2 kg and is made of high-strength polyamide.
Aluminium swingarm
Maximum precision and an extremely low weight of only 3.9 kg are guaranteed by eliminating welding in the single-component construction of the aluminium gravity die-cast swingarm.
WP suspension (front)
The split fork developed by WP Performance Systems has 215 mm wheel travel, and features better damping and an easier setup than traditional forks thanks to the separate damping circuits in the fork legs. The left leg is dedicated to compression damping, while the right fork leg is for rebound damping.
WP suspension (rear)
The completely adjustable rear shocks by WP Performance Systems feature rebound damping adjustment as well as a high and low compression damping adjustment. The 250 mm rear wheel travel guarantees perfect control in every circumstance, be it on tight and twisty mountain roads or in crowded city centres.
Innovative bodywork featuring a long seat that reaches over the radiator shrouds and includes functional ribbing to improve grip in all conditions. Tightly wrapped around the engine and frame, the 701's bodywork is ergonomically designed to connect the rider's body to the bike ensuring perfect harmony between man and machine while allowing for total control in all riding situations.
CNC-machined triple clamps
The anodised CNC-machined triple clamps are designed for high performance Supermoto needs. Stylishly crafted and engineered with a precise flex, they transmit precise information on the behaviour of the front end to the rider.
A2 licence compatible
With the specific A2 engine map that limits the power to 30 kW, the 701 SUPERMOTO is suitable for A2 licence holders who crave amazing agility and handling combined with the latest electronic safety innovations.
Magura hydraulic clutch
Light feel with perfect clutch modulation
