Husqvarna Svartpilen 401


Husqvarna Motorcycles have today taken the covers off its production VITPILEN 401 and SVARTPILEN 401 machines, while also introducing the all-new concept VITPILEN 401 AERO at the 2016 EICMA show held in Milan, Italy. These three new models on display at EICMA along with the VITPILEN 701 concept bike form part of Husqvarna’s exciting new range of ‘Real Street’ motorcycles.

With the introduction of these four pure state-of-the-art models Husqvarna Motorcycles today takes an important step towards fulfilling its progressive vision of street motorcycling.

The first two models of the ‘Real Street’ range will be the VITPILEN 401 and SVARTPILEN 401, with Husqvarna Motorcycles fully focused on rolling them out at Authorized Dealers by late Spring 2018 for the North American market. True to the brand’s high quality, performance and design standards, these two models pave the way for an astounding future in the on-road segment.

Also launched at EICMA 2016 is the VITPILEN 401 AERO concept, a single-cylinder machine that is the perfect interpretation of what a 21st century faired motorcycle should look like, according to Husqvarna.

Forming part of Husqvarna’s ‘Real Street’ bike range, the SVARTPILEN 401 is a modern day interpretation of a street explorer. Featuring a bold and rugged appearance it offers a progressive new way for potential riders to experience motorcycling.

Beyond its unique styling the SVARTPILEN 401 has a high focus on everyday functionality thus featuring rugged knobby tyres, a practical tank rack and more robust protection all-over.

Built around a similar chassis and engine philosophy to its VITPILEN 401 sibling, the SVARTPILEN 401 offers a more upright riding position thanks to its wider motocross-styled bars. The finished version of the SVARTPILEN 401 presented at EICMA 2016 is also expected to hit the showrooms by late Spring 2018.
