Numbers are one thing, actual performance is another. We thought since we take a lot of bikes to the strip to see how fast they go, we’d show you what it looks like when they face off. Keep in mind the numbers we’re showing are recorded via GPS tracking with one rider—the video is just to show you what it looks like. Got a face-off you want to see? Drop it in the comments section and we’ll try to make it happen.These bikes by the numbers:HUSQVARNA VITPILEN 701Base Price: $11,999Displacement: 693ccMeasured Wet Weight: 362 lb.
