Latest generation street motorcycles set to dominate the roads in 2024
Husqvarna Motorcycles is pleased to present the exciting, all-new 2024 generation Vitpilen and Svartpilen models. Featuring the biggest technical updates to the ranges since their introduction in 2018, the completely redesigned Vitpilen 401, Vitpilen 125, Svartpilen 401, Svartpilen 250, and Svartpilen 125 all feature entirely new engines, new chassis, class-leading technology, and new styling.
From urban commuting to weekend exploration, the newest Vitpilen and Svartpilen models have been designed to offer a consistently fun, memorable, and dynamic riding experience. Aboard these new machines, riders both young and experienced can disrupt and escape the ordinary.
An all-new steel trellis frame preserves the much-loved agility of the Vitpilen and Svartpilen models, with a lightweight aluminium swingarm and WP suspension on each machine ensuring predictable handling. The 2024 machines also feature a longer wheelbase, new frame, and a revised seat height, improving their cornering behaviour while keeping their renowned stability. The Vitpilen models further benefit from new handlebars that offer reduced weight for highly responsive steering. Powering the 2024 range is a new and more compact engine family, EURO 5+-compliant with an improved weight distribution and revised gearbox.
Offering an engaging and dynamic ride within and outside of urban environments, the Vitpilen 401 and Svartpilen 401 are powered by a 399 cc, 45 hp, single-cylinder engine that is housed inside a steel trellis chassis. Combined with a new aluminium swingarm, the motorcycles’ much-loved nimble handling gives excellent rider feedback. The Vitpilen 401 and Svartpilen 401 also share key technology, including cornering MTC, switchable ride modes, adjustable WP suspension, ByBre brakes and Bosch cornering sensitive ABS that deliver powerful stopping. Easy Shift technology allows clutchless gear changes while a 5” bonded glass TFT display, premium paint finish with decals, and 17” wheels complete the unmistakable style of the Vitpilen and Svartpilen models.
Driven by a 125 cc, 15 hp single-cylinder engine, the new Svartpilen 125 and Vitpilen 125 offer a chance to learn and explore, combining ergonomic design with high-end components for a reassuring ride. Like their larger capacity siblings, both models feature WP suspension, ByBre brakes, and Bosch cornering sensitive ABS. Offering an outstanding power-to-weight ratio, the agile, compact, and A1 licence-compliant Svartpilen 125 and Vitpilen 125 are expertly designed for the next generation of young riders.
Supreme on tight urban roads and twisting highways, the Svartpilen 250 combines a lighter, 249 cc, 31 hp single-cylinder engine with a new lightweight chassis, aluminium swingarm, and an upright riding position for a controlled and assured ride wherever the road goes. As standard, WP suspension, ByBre brakes, and dual channel Bosch ABS are used, with cast aluminium triple clamps unique to the Svartpilen 250 offering precisely engineered flex for a comfortable ride. A new 5” LCD display, premium paint finish with decals, and heavy-duty 17” cast wheels round out the premium build of the Svartpilen 250.
Additionally, Husqvarna Motorcycles offers a Technical Accessories range with a collection of meticulously designed, high-quality components to enhance performance and looks while increasing durability. The Functional Street Apparel collection allows riders to choose from a comprehensive range of riding gear and protective items, all of which provide maximum levels of safety and comfort.
