FIRST IMPRESSION

Svartpilen 250 Vitpilen 250 ABOVE: ABOVE: Clip-on bars give away its sporty intentions Luggage rack on the tank can carry up to 15 litres LEFT: RIGHT: 320-mm disc at the front with Bosch ABS Yellow highlight on the radiator is unique to the Svartpilen BELOW: BELOW: Even visually, it is evident that the Vitpilen has a relatively aggressive riding position Exposed trellis frame suits the Svartpilen’s barebones appeal road, the vitpilen is clearly focused on sticking to tarmac. it features low-set clip-on handlebars which translate into a sporty, aggressive riding position and it draws grip from mrf road tyres as well: 110/70 r17 revz-fc1 at the front and 150/60 r17 revz-c1 at the rear. Both the svartpilen and the vitpilen draw power from a 248.8cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that cranks out 30 hp at 9,000 rpm and a peak torque of 24 nm at 7,500 rpm. this motor is mated to a six-speed gearbox. Barring the cosmetic difference­s, the Ktm 250 duke and the husqvarnas are similar in many respects, including cycle parts, frame, and suspension componentr­y. however, there is a small detail in the suspension department that sets them apart. While the Ktm 250 duke uses a Wp usd fork at the front, the huskies use a 43-mm Wp apex usd fork. Which do you prefer, the svartpilen or the vitpilen? 25 June 2020 www.bikeindia.in Bike India
