Husqvarna has hiked the prices of both its offerings in India, the Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 and the Svartpilen 250. It doesn’t exactly come as a surprise as the brand had mentioned that their launch pricing (Rs 1.80 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi for both the bikes) back in December 2019 was introductory. Now, the two motorcycles have witnessed a price hike of Rs 4,736, bringing their ex-showroom Delhi price to Rs 1,84,768.
This hike seems quite reasonable considering this is the first time Husqvarna has increased the prices in about five months since their launch. It is to be noted that the bikes were already BS6 compliant since the beginning. Apart from the price hike, there have been no mechanical changes to the motorcycles.
Husqvarna retails the bikes at KTM dealerships that have been upgraded to sell both KTMs and Husqvarna motorcycles. The Swedish bikemaker had said the bikes would be available at 100 dealerships in 45 cities from early-March 2020. In the five subsequent months, Husqvarna planned to expand to almost 400 KTM showrooms across 275 towns. However, with the COVID-19 pandemic wreaking havoc across the country, expect the expansion plans to be delayed.
The Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 is a cafe racer with sporty ergonomics and road biased tyres whereas the Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 is a scrambler-style motorcycle with a relatively relaxed riding stance rolling on a little more rugged rubber. Both bikes are powered by a KTM 250 Duke-derived engine which churns out 30PS and 24Nm. All your questions regarding the two motorcycles are answered here.
