Swedish bike manufacturer Husqvarna surprised us all by unveiling the Svartpilen and Vitpilen 250 at India Bike Week instead of the 401 twins. Now though, the brand’s recent investor meet has revealed that the Husky 401 twins will be launched in India in 2020. Both bikes, just like the 250cc models, will be manufactured at Bajaj’s Chakan plant in Pune.
KTM dealerships are expected to undergo a slight makeover to facilitate sales of the new Husqvarnas. The duo was recently updated with new colours and a reworked bolt-on subframe for better pillion comfort.
Powering the 401 twins is a 373.2cc single-cylinder mill with 43.5PS of peak power and a maximum torque output of 37Nm, mated to a 6-speed transmission and a slip-and-assist clutch. Expect the engine to comply with BS6-regulations, which may hamper the performance by a small margin.
In terms of underpinnings, the Svartpilen and Vitpilen 401 use a steel trellis frame with an upside down fork and a monoshock sourced from WP. The bikes are anchored by disc brakes at both ends paired with dual-channel ABS. The Vitpilen features road-biased tyres wrapped around 17-inch wheels while the Svartpilen gets dual-purpose tyres in the same wheel sizes.
The Vitpilen 401 cafe racer is likely to be priced around Rs 3.00 lakh to Rs 3.20 lakh while the Svartpilen 401 could set you back by Rs 3.10 to Rs 3.30 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
