Husqvarna showcased the production ready form of its forthcoming bike, the Vitpilen 401 at the ongoing EICMA. The concept of this bike was showcased at the same motor show two years back alongside the Spartvilen concept. The production ready version of the Vitpilen looks almost same as the concept that was showcased earlier.

According to reports, Husqvarna is all set to launch this beautiful looking machine in India, just after it goes on sale in Europe. The motorcycle is based on the same platform that is used by the newly launched KTM Duke 390. The company hasn’t confirmed about the specs of the motorcycle yet, but it is likely to be powered by a 375cc single cylinder engine. The engine is likely to be tuned in such a way that it should produce 42.9 bhp of maximum power along with 32.92 Nm of torque. The transmission duties would be handled by a 6-speed gearbox. The only bummer is the small 9.5-liter fuel tank, which is even smaller from the older Duke 390. 

The suspension duties will be handled by a pair of 43 mm upside-down forks at the front, that can travel up to 142mm for better cushioning. A rear monoshock has also been provided, which can travel upto massive 150 mm. The stopping power comes from a big 320 mm disc brake at the front and 230 mm disc brake at the rear. Moreover, the good news is that the bike also gets dual channel ABS as standard. Additionally the bike is equipped with grippy Metzeler M5 tyres, LED lights, digital instrument cluster, clip-on handlebars and nice looking single seat layout.

The motorcycle is likely to be launched in the international markets prior than Indian market. The motorcycle is likely to be built at Bajaj Auto’s plant in Chakan.
