The Husqvarnas Are About To Become More Affordable In India!

The company has been spotted testing the Svartpilen 200, which will become the new entry point into the brand, in India


If Swedish brand Husqvarna’s stylish Vitpilen 250 and Svartpilen 250 are a little too expensive to squeeze into your budget, we’ve got good news for you. Yes, Husqvarna is gearing up to bring its more expensive 401 range to India, but at the same time it’s also working on launching the more affordable Svartpilen 200. And the bike has now been spotted testing in India, quite close to Bajaj’s manufacturing facility in Chakan, just outside Pune.

Unfortunately, we were riding a motorcycle ourselves when we came across the test mule, which means that we couldn’t click any pictures. But it also means that we could ride alongside it for a fair distance and make some interesting observations.

The first and most obvious giveaway that this was a 200 was the underbelly exhaust -- the 250 has a side-slung unit. The existence of the Svartpilen 200 is no secret, with the bike even being proudly on display on Husqvarna’s Thai and Malaysian websites. A quick browse through the webpages reveals that the engine covers on the test mule we spotted match those of the production bike on Husqvarna’s website.

One way the test mule did differ from the bike in Husqvarna’s studio shots is the rear grab rail. The bike in India sported a rather ugly and utilitarian single-piece grab rail just like the 250s on sale in our country.

Considering how out in the open this bike is and how Husqvarna is already testing it in India, we expect an official launch sometime in the first half of 2021. Pricing should follow a similar trend to the 250s, meaning that the Svartpilen 200 will arrive at around Rs 1.60 lakh to 1.65 lakh (ex-showroom).
