Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 & Vitpilen 250 Deliveries Begin In India
Deliveries of the recently launched Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 and the Vitpilen 250 have commenced across the country. The Scandinavian brand was introduced in India in December 2019 at India Bike Week, and the bikes were launched last month at a mouth-watering price tag of ₹ 1.80 lakh (ex-showroom). At that introductory price point, the new Huskys are only more expensive than the KTM 200 Duke by ₹ 7000 and cheaper than the KTM 250 Duke by a healthy ₹ 20,000. The highly competitive pricing is expected to give the motorcycles a jump-start in the market. The Huskys will be sold via select KTM dealerships pan India with the presence to only grow in the coming years.
The Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 and the Vitpilen 250 share the same underpinnings, which in turn, is shared with the KTM 250 Duke. The bikes use a Trellis frame with a bolt-on subframe, along with the same cycle parts including USD forks up front, pre-load adjustable monoshock at the rear, and disc brakes with dual-channel ABS. Power comes from the 249 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine tuned for 29.6 bhp and 24 Nm of peak torque. The motor is paired with a 6-speed gearbox.
