In 2014, Husqvarna shocked the motorcycle world with the presentation of its 401 Vitpilen and 401 Svartpilen concepts, dressing up the KTM 390 platform as one of the most eye-catching and unique new retro cafe racer and scrambler designs ever. Since the introduction of the production model in 2016, the 401 Svartpilen has been a huge success for the Swedish brand. After joining the larger siblings of the 701, Husky has now gotten rid of the smaller, more affordable, and more beginner beginners. A friendly version of the futuristic street scrambler of the ranks Svartpilen 125.
Although the displacement is a quarter-liter, the 125cc Svartpilen still maintains the appearance, manufacturing quality, and a series of high-quality running gear on the 401 (373cc) model. The black powder-coated steel chassis is matched to the liquid-cooled and fuel-injected bikes of the 2021 model. The chassis is paired with the WP APEX suspension and 17-inch spoke wheels spread out in the Pirelli rubber front and rear wheels. Other most commonly used accessories include bronze engine hoods and anodized parts, ByBre brakes supported by Bosch ABS, CNC machined foot spikes, and surrounding LED lights. Prices have not yet been announced, although the 2021 Husqvarna Svartpilen 125 is scheduled to be available sometime this month. For more information, you can check the company website.
