    Vitpilen 701

    It's looking more and more likely that this is going into production with launch this time next year.

    Personally I think it's stunning and haven't been this excited about a new bike launch in a long time (then again I do get easily excited)

    Money is being saved

    You need to get the enduro one first

    It certainly has some nice design features, the seat and rear end look particularly pretty but dont you think the wheelbase looks a bit too long ?
    Just a Prospect at the moment

    I think it's the angle the picture was taken at, it's hard to tell though; some more pictures below.....

    My one true love is and always has been smallish bikes. I work in design so am a 'creative' darhhhhling and for me this pushes all the right buttons.

    It's light and small. With the KTM 690 lump it'll put out good power and will no doubt be a blast to ride. But, best of all, it's been 'designed', almost like a modern version of (but much better) those Philippe Starck Aprillas.

    I wonder how much they will be (probably not cheap though)?

    What's wrong with that?

    Anyway, whilst I see where you're coming from I don't agree. It's not 'retro' enough and nor does it have the same 'vibe' man............ and one crucial difference is that this looks like it'll more than deliver when it comes to performance and handling

    The latest spy shots don't fill me with much confidence that the production bike will look like the concept.


    Sent from my iPad using some of the hippy skills I learned off Andres.

    If the production bike looks as good as the concept then I will be having one. Any idea on price yet?

    He has probably forgotten all about and wandered off into some pink floyd hippy induced comatose state

    Thats lovely, really nice design. Cant imagine how big the numberplate hanger and mudguard will be to ensure its just behind the rear wheel (as per regs).
