  • Husqvarna unveils 2024 Svartpilen 401 and Vitpilen 250

    Bajaj Auto Ltd. has unveiled the 2024 Husqvarna Svartpilen 401 and Vitpilen 250. Since 1903, Husqvarna Motorcycles has maintained uninterrupted production of its machines ever since, becoming one of the longest-running and most revered global motorcycle brands.




    Husqvarna Motorcycles built their reputation as the pioneer in the sport of Motocross by winning the first five FIM Motocross World Championship titles in the 60s. Husqvarna Motorcycles, steeped in Swedish heritage, stands as a paragon of timeless elegance, sophistication, and unique craftsmanship. Rooted in a legacy that spans over a century, Husqvarna epitomizes the perfect synergy of form and function, embodying a distinctive blend of performance and style.

    Svartpilen 401 and Vitpilen 250, have been designed to offer a consistently fun, memorable, and dynamic riding experience. The attractive design together with the enjoyable engine and standard electronic rider aids paves the way for future Husqvarna Street Motorcycles and exhibits the brand by offering a motorcycle that is not only aesthetically appealing but also delivers good quality and enjoyable performance.

    Svartpilen 401

    The Svartpilen 401 is a sleek, and sophisticated modern Scrambler offering an engaging and dynamic ride within and outside of urban environments.

    The Svartpilen 401 is powered by a 399 cc, 45 hp engine that is housed inside a steel trellis chassis. Combined with a new aluminium swingarm, the motorcycle's much-loved nimble handling gives excellent rider feedback. The Svartpilen 401 is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including adjustable WP suspension, ByBre brakes, and Bosch Dual Channel ABS that deliver powerful stopping. Easy Shift technology allows clutchless gear changes, while a 5” bonded glass TFT display, premium paint finish with decals, and 17” spoked wheels complete the unmistakable style of the Svartpilen 401.






    Vitpilen 250

    The Vitpilen 250 is a nimble and minimalist urban Roadster that offers an ergonomic design with light-weight surefootedness giving the rider an immersive riding guarantee.

    Like its larger capacity sibling, the model features WP suspension, ByBre brakes and dual-channel Bosch ABS. The agile and powerful Vitpilen 250 is expertly designed for the next generation of young riders, offering an outstanding power-to-weight ratio and more upright riding position. A new 5” LCD display, premium paint finish with decals, WP suspension, and heavy-duty 17” cast wheels round out the premium build of the Vitpilen 250.





    Precision Crafted Ride

    An all-new steel trellis frame preserves the much-loved agility of the Svartpilen and Vitpilen, with a lightweight aluminium swingarm and WP suspension on each machine ensuring predictable handling. The 2024 machines also feature a longer wheelbase, a new frame, and a revised seat height, improving their cornering behaviour while maintaining their renowned stability. The Vitpilen 250 further benefits from new handlebars that offer reduced weight for highly responsive steering. Powering the 2024 range is a new and more compact engine family, with an improved weight distribution and revised gearbox.
