THE FACTS O 42.9bhp (est) O 149kg (est) O Seat height 830mm (est)

HIGH­LIGHTS Rad­i­cal new styling KTM 390 en­gine WP sus­pen­sion We may have had a lot of warn­ing of its ar­rival, but it’s great to see that the Husky Vit­pilen will ar­rive undi­luted from the star­tling style we first wit­nessed in the pro­to­types.

Be­yond the stark and min­i­mal­ist styling, it’s pow­ered by the same en­gine as the KTM 390 Duke, mean­ing a four-stroke, sin­gle-cylin­der 375cc unit that can be made A2 li­cence­friendly at the dealer.

The ma­chine is a truly unique blend of form and func­tion, and marks a new dawn for Husq­varna road bikes. We reckon that in it­self has to war­rant closer in­spec­tion.
