The Husqvarna 250 Twins use a 248.8 cc single-cylinder engine. It is a liquid-cooled mill that is capable of putting out 30 PS of maximum power at 9,000 rpm and 24 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm. It is linked to a 6-speed gearbox. The same powerplant is also fitted in the KTM 250 Duke and the new KTM 250 Adventure. In fact, the Bajaj Dominar 250 also uses this engine but with a handful of changes.
While the Svartpilen 250 and Vitpilen 250 share the same engine, they are a bit different from each other in a few aspects. For example, the former has been equipped with a high-rise off-road style handlebar. It also has a more relaxed riding position. Husqvarna has also added a luggage rack on the fuel tank of the Svartpilen 250. On the other hand, being a cafe racer, the Vitpilen 250 features a slightly lean-forward riding stance thanks to the low-set clip-on handlebars.
Some of the common features of the Husqvarna 250 Twins include:
- Full LED-lighting

- State-of-the-art Bosch ABS
