Husqvarna Vitpilen?! Svartpilen?! Sounds like the Swedish Chef from The Muppets “Bork! Bork! Bork!!”…but I just discovered Vitpilen means WHITE ARROW and Svartpilen is BLACK ARROW in Swedish… I didn’t know that, and it’s not listed in the literature either! Names out of the way, they are ALL-NEW 2024 Husqvarna Svartpilen 401, Svartpilen 125, Vitpilen 401, and Vitpilen 125 featuring new frames, swingarms, new engines, rear suspension, 5” TFT display, front fork, premium paint, low seat height, cornering ABS, Easy Shift and connectivity features, LED headlight, Spoked 17” wheels or cast aluminium 17″ wheels! That’s A LOT of new to discover.
These Husqvarna street bikes are so unique, they remind me of the classic 1960’s style Norton bikes with the flat petrol tanks and gauges for style. I’ve seen a few of them in person riding around and they do get attention even when parked. I think it’s great to see a motorcycle manufacturer like Husqvarna expand their line into something new and different and offer up unique solutions to street bikes!
