The Husqvarna Vitpilen 401 was recently spotted testing on the Pune-Mumbai highway. 

It has already been launched in Europe and South America in white body colour with spoke wheels. However, the Husqvarna bike spotted in India has alloy wheels similar to the KTM 390 Duke.

With Swedish origins, the KTM owned Husqvarna motorcycles – the Vitpilen 401 and Svartpilen 401 will come with a ‘Made in India’ tag and would be launched in India between 2019 and 2020.

These Husqvarna motorbikes will house a 373.2cc, single cylinder motor that churns 43.5 bhp of max power and 37 Nm of peak torque and will come with a 6-speed transmission. The engine is borrowed from the KTM 390 Duke.

The Husqvarna test mule was seen fitted with grab rails – a must have on all motorbikes to be sold in India. It features clip-on handlebars, fuel mounted bag carrier, round digital instrument cluster and slim rounded LED headlights. It will also come with WP 43 USD forks in the front and WP monoshock at the rear. The braking duty will be taken care of with the help of 320mm disc brake in the front and 230mm rear disc brake. Additionally, dual ABS system in the Husqvarna bikes will be offered as standard.

The Husqvarna Svartpilen is also doing its test rounds in India. The Husqvarna bikes look very identical, apart from the exhaust, fuel tank rack, handlebars, skid plate, seat and tyres. Svartpilen will come in Black colour.

In India, the bikes will be officially launched around March 2019 by Bajaj-KTM as they own the Husqvarna brand. Also known as the Huskies, their price is expected to touch Rs 3 lakhs. The Husqvarna models will be pitted against the BMW G310R.
