701 LR Dropped
If you are an owner of the longer-range Husky 701, be thankful. For 2021, the 701 LR has disappeared from Husky’s website. Unfortunately, it appears that the model will no longer be produced. Nor does it appear that a larger accessory fuel tank will be available. There’s no immediate word as to why the bike no longer appears in Husky’s model lineup.
