Husqvarna caught us by surprise when it showcased the Vitpilen 250 and the Svartpilen 250 at the India Bike Week 2019. While we are still waiting for these Huskies to be launched in our country, the Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 has been launched in Japan for JPY 599,000 (tax included) which comes out to be around INR 3.89 lakh.
The Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 borrows various design cues from its elder siblings, the Svartpilen 401 and Svartpilen 701, which have received a slight makeover for MY2020. It features a mix of retro and modern styling which demands a lot of attention. We are a fan of its minimalistic bodywork that makes it look lightweight and at 153 kg (semi-dry) it indeed is. Riding it should be sheer fun.
Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 Key Features
There are a plethora of elements in the Svartpilen 250 that we like and are curious to check out in person when the bike gets launched here in India. Following are some of its key features:
- Full LED-lighting
- Fully-digital instrument console
- State-of-the-art Bosch ABS
- Robust 17-inch cast aluminium wheels
- Light and strong steel trellis frame
- WP suspension setup
- Premium and high-quality materials
- ByBre brakes
