2017 Husqvarna 401 Motorcycles

Nov 8, 2016

If you had to ask anyone in the motorcycling world what one of the most anticipated releases of the year was going to be, they’d likely put the Husqvarna 401 Vitpilen and Svartpilen pretty high up on their list. Now, finally, it looks like the 2017 Husvarna 401 motorcycles are ready to hit the market.

These bikes were initially shown as prototypes to the public in 2014 as a way to test general interest. The reaction was pretty unanimous – everyone wanted one. So now, a couple of years later, Husqvarna is ready to roll the production versions of these bikes off the lot. On first look, the bikes seem remarkably (and thankfully) similar to the prototypes. Both the cafe racer (Vitpilen) and scrambler (Svartpilen) are powered by a 375cc single cylinder engine that’ll drive 44 horses through a 6 speed transmission and still weigh a surprisingly light 300 pounds. No specific date or prices are available yet, but keep your eyes peeled. These things will be a blast to ride.
