Bajaj Auto has been gearing up to bring the Husqvarna Vitpilen 401 and Svartpilen 401 neo-retro motorcycles in India and now, the homegrown bike manufacturer has confirmed that the Husqvarna models will hit the country market in 2019 only. Both the Husqvarna Vitpilen 401 and Svartpilen 401 will be manufactured locally at the Bajaj Auto’s Chakan plant, just like the KTM bikes.

Upon launch, Husqvarna motorcycles will be positioned above the KTM models. Thanks to the highly localized production, expect the Husqvarna motorcycles to be priced very aggressively. As KTM has seen impressive success in India in short period after launch here, Husqvarna motorcycles too are expected to garner attention of the buyers.
