Husqvarna’s Rugged and Compact Road Machine: The Svartpilen 401
The Svartpilen 401 is a compact street scrambler from Swedish brand Husqvarna. Despite its rugged appearance, it’s one of the more road-focused models in the 2021 Husqvarna line-up. While it looks like it’s able to tackle tough trails, it’s actually designed for street riding. This European-made street scrambler is the ideal motorcycle for riders looking for a reliable commuter with an adventurous side.
It may sport an iconic silhouette, but it boasts modern technology. The heart of the Svartpilen 401 is a contemporary 373 cc single-cylinder engine—the same unit found in the KTM 390 Duke. The maximum output is rated at 44 horsepower, complemented with 27.3 lb-ft of peak torque.
The engine is held in place with a sophisticated trellis frame made from hydroformed chromium-molybdenum. Other highlights of the rolling chassis include WP Apex suspension, ByBre brakes, a set of 17” spoked rims, and distinctive LED lighting. Aluminum components, ABS, and an unforgettable aesthetic, all feature as standard.
For 2021, the Svartpilen 401 is available in a silver color scheme.
The 2021 Husqvarna Svartpilen 401 is expected to start at $4,999 USD / $6,999 CAD.
