After months of being observed during testing, the Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 and Svartpilen 401 have been released in India. The first is priced at 2.19 lakh rupees, while the second is priced at 2.92 lakh rupees। This marks a shift in the Huskies’ generation, as both bikes are now based on the corresponding current generation KTMs। The earlier models had a big problem with being small but tall, and the company seems to have addressed those issues with this generation.

HIGHLIGHTS

  1. 401 with a 46 horsepower, 39 Nm engine, and Pirelli tires
  2. TFT dash is added to Svartpilen 401.
  3. Two-way quickshifting and traction control are added to the 250.

Husqvarna Svartpilen 401 250 Duke’s roadster cousin

This iteration of Vitpilen is more of a roadster than the previous one, which featured clip-on handlebars and a tall, narrow seat, giving it a cafe racer look. Though it still puts you in a somewhat athletic stance, the 2024 Vitpilen 250’s curved handlebar doesn’t seem to be as dedicated as the bike’s predecessor.

Additionally, it appears that Husqvarna has solved the space limitations that afflicted the earlier motorcycles. A 100mm increase in seat length should provide additional room for the rider and pillion to sit comfortably. More significantly, the seat height has now been lowered to 820mm, a 22mm decrease. The Svartpilen 401 also exhibits this modification. Compared to the versions they replace, both motorcycles appear to be generally bigger, broader, and longer.

The same 249cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine as the KTM 250 Duke, with ratings of 31 horsepower at 9,500 rpm and 25 Nm at 7,500 rpm, powers the Vitpilen 250. The Husqvarna’s peak power numbers are 250 rpm higher in the rev range than the KTM’s, despite being the same. The suspension, brake hardware, and primary frame have all remained virtually unaltered. The Vitpilen’s 13.5-liter gasoline tank has replaced the 250 Duke’s 15-liter tank, but that’s the only difference. Despite this, the Husqvarna model weighs one kilogram heavier. The front and rear tires are the same size, 110/70-R17 and 150/60-R17, respectively, but the rubber compound has changed to MRF Revz from MRF Steel Brace units on the KTM.

In addition to all the electronics seen on the 250 Duke, the Vitpilen gains a traction control system and a 5-inch LCD with switchgear taken from its KTM relative. LED illumination is the norm for everybody.

With almost the same mechanical components and electrical features as the KTM 250 Duke, the Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 is priced at Rs 20,000 less at Rs 2.19 lakh. The more conventional Husqvarna design should also appeal to individuals who don’t like the rather bizarre style of the KTMs. Despite being more sporty and technologically advanced, the Vitpilen is more reasonably priced at its asking price than the top Royal Enfield Classic 350 model and almost on level with the CB350 DLX Pro and the new Jawa 350 (Rs 2.15 lakh).

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Scrambler based on 390 Duke

Based on the Gen 3 390 Duke, Husqvarna has also introduced the bigger Svartpilen 401 for 2024. The bike appears to be roomier now that all of the improvements made to the Vitpilen have also been applied to the Svartpilen. The major frame and cycle elements are likewise essentially the same, and the 399cc single-cylinder engine has the same 46 horsepower and 39 Nm ratings as the KTM.

However, there are a few significant variations. First off, the Svartpilen 401 rides on excellent Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR rubber that is shod on 17-inch tubed wire-spoke wheels. With 13.5 liters of fuel capacity, the Svartpilen has a lesser capacity than the 390 Duke, but it weighs 3 kg heavier. The Vitpilen 250’s 820mm seat height and the motorcycle’s new 177mm ground clearance are the same.

The Svartpilen 401 receives a TFT dash, much like its similar KTM cousin, although the design and visuals have undergone significant alteration. With a switchable traction control system, cornering ABS, and a bidirectional quick-shifter, the electrical assistance remains mostly unchanged. The 401 isn’t mentioned as having riding modes, like the KTM equivalent. Though it costs Rs 2.92 lakh, the Husqvarna Svartpilen 401 costs Rs 19,000 less than the KTM 390 Duke, and it has most of the Austrian bike’s features and performance.
