The 250cc Svartpilen and Vitpilen family of motorcycles from Husqvarna, receives new colour schemes. A matte black blue colour and beige grey seat cowls are now available for the Svartpilen "Black Arrow." The Vitpilen "White Arrow" now features glossy, dark silver metallic seat cowls that contrast with the matte-finish ceramic white colour of the vehicle. In India, KTM Husqvarna showrooms are now accepting bookings for these new colours.
The price of both the bikes remain unchanged. Svartpilen 250 is priced at Rs. 2,19,878 (ex-showroom, Delhi) and Vitpilen 250 is priced at Rs. 2,19,251 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The Husqvarna Svartpilen and Vitpilen are bespoke Swedish motorcycles that are carefully manufactured to give excellent performance and are noted for their attractive design. The Swedish philosophy of maintaining a delicate balance between energetic performance and distinctive Scandinavian design is the cause of this.
The single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke fuel-injected engine on the 250 cc bikes provides a dynamic and enjoyable riding experience. The engine generates 30.84 bhp of power and 24 Nm of maximum torque. The engine is coupled to a 6-speed transmission with an assist and slipper clutch. The motorcycles' bodywork is supported by the split trellis frame. Both motorcycles are equipped with dual-channel ABS, ByBre 320 mm front and 230 mm rear disc brakes, and the identical braking system. Additional features include complete LED illumination, a fully digital instrument cluster, and more.
The Svartpilen 250 features an upright stance and a more robust build. It has dual-purpose tyres that can be used for both on- and off-road travel. The Vitpilen250 features clip-on handlebars, a front lean riding position, and a sportier appearance.
Commenting on the new range, Sumeet Narang, President (Probiking) at Bajaj Auto Ltd. said, "The Husqvarna range of motorcycles have a unique position in the premium motorcycle segment, thanks to the clever integration of superior performance with a unique and minimalistic Swedish design language. The Husqvarna twins are meant for discerning motorcycle riders with an evolved taste, a strong appreciation for style, and those who dont want a compromise between performance and elegant design. The new colourways accentuate this design philosophy."
