KTM owned Husqvarna Motorcycles will be providing an automatic clutch kit as an option on its upcoming motorcycles - the Vitpilen and the Svartpilen 401. Spy shots of the test mules are already doing rounds on the internet and the Vitpilen has been prowling the Indian roads for quite a time now. The automatic clutch option on both the bikes will be a segment first feature for the Indian market.

The brand will be using a Rekluse clutch kit that converts the manual gearbox into a twist and go set-up. With this equipment, it will be impossible to stall the bike as it makes the clutch disused when it comes to a halt. This will help the city commuters in a great way who takes on the bumper to bumper traffic conditions on a daily basis. The Rekluse kit is already used for a number of motorcycles in the international markets.
