Husqvarna Svartpilen 401 and Vitpilen 401


Swedish marque Husqvarna entered the Indian market with the launch of the Svartpilen 250 and the Vitpilen 250. The café racer-inspired Vitpilen 250 and the scrambler-inspired Svartpilen 250 both feature the standout designs that modern-day Husqvarna motorcycle­s are known for, merging retro elements like round headlights and mirrors with futuristic bodywork, unique styling, and unmistakab­le contours. The bigger ’pilen siblings are up next, with a launch expected sometime this year.

The 401s draw power from the brand’s 373.3-cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder motor which, in turn, is derived from sister manufactur­er KTM’s 390 Duke. This engine puts out 43.5 hp and 37 Nm of peak torque. Engine apart, the bigger Huskies are also likely to get a TFT screen and an upgraded electronic­s package. Expect to see these models in showroom by the end of 2021.
