Recall that the arms factory in Swedish Husqvarna was opened by order of the king in 1689. And only in 207 years the product line was replenished with a bicycle. The first motorcycle Husqvarna descended from the assembly line in 1903 and was, in fact, a bicycle with a motor. At the then popular highway race in 1933 and 1934. Husqvarna not once occupied the first lines of the podium. In 1955, the legendary Silverpilen ("Silver Arrow") began to be sold. The revolutionary motorcycle Husqvarna, created directly for off-road use, was equipped with a telescopic fork, hydraulic shock absorbers, weighed only 75 kg and had a high level of agility.
After that, there were many more legends and sporting victories. In 1987, Husqvarna acquired the Italian company Cagiva. Thus, the Swedish brand joined MV Agusta Motor SpA, and motorcycles were started in Varese (Italy). While most of the Husqvarna team moved to Italy, the rest stayed in Sweden and started building their own Husaberg motorcycles. Ten years ago, the famous firm Husqvarna again sold – this time it was acquired by German specialists from BMW. And only in 2013 the company Pierer Industries AG (the owner of the brand Husaberg) acquired Husqvarna for the purpose of further reunification of Husqvarna and Husaberg. In 2014 Husqvarna returned in the form of the very legend of the 1960s and 1970s. Customers were given the opportunity to buy fully updated enduro and cross bikes. And the release of the 2016 model Husvarna 701 Supermoto completely returned to the origins of single-cylinder road bikes.
