Husqvarna Plans To Ride In The Svartpilen 200 After The 250


The Svartpilen 200 uses a split-frame like the 250 and not its KTM twin, the 200 Duke

  • The 199cc single-cylinder engine will be future emission compliant.
  • It makes the same 25.84PS as the 200 Duke.
  • Expect it to be priced around Rs 1.85 lakh.

After showcasing the Svartpilen 250 and the Vitpilen 250 at India Bike Week 2019, Husqvarna is ready to bring out even smaller versions of these motorcycles -- as is evident with the Svartpilen 200 breaking cover. At first glance, there is not much that will give away the 200 from the 250 but it becomes obvious once you notice the side-slung exhaust missing on the bike.

The Svartpilen 200 carries over the same styling as its 401 and 250 siblings. The circular LED headlamp looks smashing, so does the sleek tail lamp tucked in nicely below the pillion seat. Currently, there is no grab handle on the bike but rest assured we would find one when the bike makes it down to our shores.

One of the biggest differences between the Svartpilen 200 and the KTM 200 Duke -- the bike on which the small Husky is based -- is that the former uses a tubular split-type frame like the Svartpilen 250 and the 250 Duke. Nestled in the frame is the 199cc single-cylinder engine that makes 25.84PS -- the same as the 200 Duke. The engine has a revised exhaust layout with a chunkier cat-con being spotted, suggesting the bike will be BS6-compliant.

Much like the Svartpilen 250, the Svartpilen 200 gets a 43mm USD fork, a preload-adjustable monoshock, a 300mm rotor with a four-piston radial caliper acting on the front wheel and the rear brake setup includes a 230mm disc with a single-piston caliper. Dual-channel ABS comes as standard. It gets the same dual-purpose MRF tyres as the Svartpilen 250.

Given that Husqvarna seeks to focus on establishing the brand in India with the two 250s, the earliest we could see the bikes on the road is early 2021. Expect this bike to carry a sticker price of Rs 1.85 lakh when it goes on sale in 2021.
