The Husqvarna 701 Svartpilen is one of the best looking bikes that you can ride with an A2 licence, however it needs to be restricted.

It offers excellent riding capabilities, very good handling and long service intervals, which makes it an ideal bike for beginners.

The Husqvarna 701 Svartpilen is definitely not the cheapest A2 motorbike out there and it only has a single-cylinder engine, so it might not be for everyone.

But, you can ride it restricted for a couple of years and de-restrict it later for its full performance of 75 hp.

If you would like to ride a similar bike with a smaller engine, then the Husqvarna 401 Svartpilen or 401 Vitpilen are the bikes you are looking for.
