Sheer naked styling is what Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 is all about. As like all other Austrian manufactured models, this one too is stuffed with state of the art features like an anti-hopping clutch, WP shocks, Trellis frame and Bybre brakes. The exterior design is a blend of classic and modern ideas synonymous with the Swedish heritage. So sub 500cc category competition is getting thick and hot with a lot of companies eyeing in this segment.
Husqvarna has come to India with two of its models which are the Svartpilen 250 and the Vitpilen 250. Although both the bikes have very similar features and styles, the former is a scrambler and the other is a café racer styling. Which makes it a tough competitor to other bikes like KTM, Dominor and others.
It gets a 6-speed manual transmission gearbox mounted to a modern fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, 250 cc with a twin overhead camshafts engine, which delivers a power of 31 hp and a torque of 24 Nm. And is equipped with an electric starter powered by a 12V/8Ah battery.
Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 has a fuel tank capacity of 9.5 litres and this also comes in only a single colour variant which is Grey. The lightweight trellis frame is made up of high strength steel using hydroformed tubes, which gives it a very rugged and sporty look.
With a Round LED headlamp and LED tail lamp, it also has a digital display that gives every detail of the bike. This bike also has the same WP suspension, 43mm big piston forks in front and a progressive damping system directly connected to the swingarm in the rear.
The Vitpilen 250 comes with a dual-channel Bosch ABS system with hydraulic ByBre brake callipers, with a combination of 320mm front and 230mm rear discs. But unless like Svartpilen 250, this bike comes with a ground clearance of 145mm with a weight of 152 Kg. And has a seat height of 835mm. It is launched in India with a starting cost of Rs.2,09,000/- (ex-showroom price) onwards.
Founded way back in 1903, Husqvarna Motorcycles is a Swedish-origin Austrian company which manufactures almost all sorts of two-wheelers from street motorcycles to motocross. It is one of the most reputed and admired European motorcycle brands in modern times. In 2013, company along with Husaberg came under the umbrella of another Austrian kingpin KTM group. At last, what belongs together has come together again.
