Husqvarna Vitpilen 401 and Vitpilen 401 Aero
Husqvarna Motorcycles recently took the covers off their production Vitpilen 401 and also introduced an all-new concept Vitpilen 401 Aero at the 2016 EICMA show held in Milan, Italy.
Vitpilen is Swedish for ‘White Arrow’ and along with its Svartpilen sibling, and the new Aero concept, these machines will form the backbone of Husqvarna entry into the learner market with some stylish new offerings.
With the introduction of these models Husqvarna Motorcycles takes an important step towards fulfilling their progressive vision of street motorcycling.
And this will just be the start of things to come, as Husqvarna works towards an expanding future into the streetbike market.
Alongisde the production ready Vitpilen was also the new Vitpilen 401 Aero concept, which we can expect to see either launched alongside the regular machine, or offered in kit form to modify the standard machine when they hit the streets in Australia late next year, 2017.
Devoid of any excess and focused on providing a pure riding experience the Vitpilen 401 features a technologically advanced single-cylinder 375 cc engine already seen in KTM’s 390 Duke and RC390, in a stripped down but progressive layout.
With promising performance the bike appeals to an entirely new generation of riders looking for an honest and highly accessible machine.
