Husqvarna Vitpilen 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.

Launching Husqvarna’s new ‘Real Street’ range the VITPILEN 401 is a refreshingly simple and progressive urban street motorcycle that provides a new gateway into the motorcycling culture for a wider range of riders. Recognized and globally awarded for its unique design the VITPILEN 401 presented at EICMA 2016 is set to hit the showrooms by late Spring 2018.

Devoid of any excess and focused on providing a pure riding experience the VITPILEN 401 features a technologically advanced single-cylinder 375 cc engine that is housed in a stripped down but progressive layout. Offering excellent performance the bike appeals to an entirely new generation of riders looking for an honest and highly accessible machine.
