Flat track fan­dango

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

The Svart­pilen con­cept is the yin to the Vitpilen’s yang. De­signed to have a rougher edge than the Vitpilen, but shar­ing the same key run­ning gear, it’s built to be a ‘dark street explorer’. The theme be­hind the bike is the re­vived flat track scene and that’s no clearer than the front light, which pays homage to the num­ber­boards fit­ted to race bikes. The Svart­pilen has an 18in front wheel with a 17in back, to tame the ur­ban wilder­ness. It’s not clear how much will carry over into the pro­duc­tion bike, but we’re keen to see what waits in the wings.
