The Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 and Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 were launched in India in February this year. The Swedish 250 Twins received quite some attention because of their dynamic styling which was something that the Indian audience hadn’t witnessed in the 250 cc segment before. Apart from the unique aesthetics, another reason why the Husqvarna 250 Twins quickly became a topic of discussion was their attractive prices.
The Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 and Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 were launched with an introductory price tag of INR 1,80,032*. The introductory price is no longer applicable, and the regular price is INR 4,736 higher. This means that both the Husqvarna 250s now cost INR 1,84,768*.
|Model||Old BS6 Price*||New BS6 Price*||Price Hike|

|Vitpilen 250||INR 1,80,032||INR 1,84,768||INR 4,736|
Apart from the price hike, no changes have been implemented in either of the motorbikes.
Being a cafe-racer, the Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 features a slightly lean-forward riding stance thanks to the low-set clip-on handlebars. On the other hand, the Svartpilen 250 is more of a scrambler and thus, has been equipped with a high-rise off-road style handlebar. It also has a more relaxed riding position. Apart from that, Husqvarna has also added a luggage rack on the fuel tank of the Svartpilen 250.
