Husqvarna to bring their bikes to India in 2017
Husqvarna showcased two bikes at the Milan Auto show. The two bikes grabbed a lot of eyeballs and stole a lot of hearts. One was called the 401 Vitpilen (white arrow), which was basically a naked café racer, which looked too good to be true. The other was called the 401 Svartpilen (black arrow) which looked something like a Ducati Scrambler, complete with Knobby tyres and the works.
In 2013, the Swedish company was bought over by KTM and Stefan Pierer hinted that Bajaj Auto would use its Chakan Plant in its “resurrection“ process. Once you look closely at the bikes, you’d see that they share the same chassis as the KTM 200 and 390. They also use the same 390 engine, which produces 43.5 bhp. Though no official statements on specs have been made, this is all speculation!
One of the MD’s of the company present at the event, Reinhold Zens, said that these were not the finished products but only concepts. The finished product would have to follow “rules and regulations”. You can expect a production ready bike to be showcased at an Auto show sometime next year, and expect the bike to hit the streets soon after. The bike would however not be in the same price range as the KTM’s and would have an independent name, like how Kawasaki sells independently.
