The scrambler Svartpilen range and cafe racer Vitpilen range fall in line with the Swedish heritage of Husqvarna and folks, they look stunning!
Husqvarna Svartpilen 250
Starting with the Husqvarna Svartpilen 250, the lightweight 250cc machine with its upright riding position and dual-purpose tyres is a perfect fit for both city ride and canyon runs. Powered by a liquid-cooled 248.8cc single-cylinder engine, mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox, the Svartpilen 250 pushes 23kW at 9,000 rpm and a peak torque of 24 Nm @ 7,500 rpm.
Braking is done via a ByBre four-piston calliper with 320mm front disc up front and a ByBre single-piston calliper with 230mm disc at the rear. Suspension duties are taken care of by WP Apex 43mm front fork and WP Apex rear monoshock.
Speaking of the electronics, the Svartpilen 250 gets premium full LED lighting, digital LCD instrument cluster and Bosch 9.1MB dual-channel ABS. You might find the specifications falling in closely with the KTM 250 Duke, this is because KTM bought over Husqvarna back in 2013, therefore, Husqvarna’s current fleet of bikes share ample amount of mechanical components with the bikes from its parent brand, KTM.
