Cumbrian biking protection specialists Knox ecently tested the all-action, adventure-focused Husqvarna 701.

The enduro machine was bought from us, Colin Appleyard Motorcycles, and was subject to a comprehensive test. We have been long time Husky specialists and many of our customers ride them in the popular RAW Enduro series.

Knox is a UK based, family-run company, who ‘specialise in the design and manufacturing of innovative body armour and apparel’ for adrenaline sports, namely motorcycling! With foundations from 1981, the founder, Geoff Travell, still leads the business today. Geoff was a British motorcycle racer before the days of body armour and thus began Knox….

Tester Aaron Travell said the Husky 701 Enduro was “the most undersold motorcycle in the marketplace… it meets a lot of people's needs”. The bike sits perfectly in between pure enduro and adventure bikes because of its great power and road comforts, coupled with its lightness in comparison to adventure bikes. These advantages make it a perfect all-rounder, removing the risk of becoming stranded due to tricky conditions.

The Knox boys found the bike “absolutely awesome”, saying its perfect for their needs. We can’t wait to hear more about their experience with the 701 Enduro, and really enjoyed the great video and superb images they put together.
