‘Husqvarna’ sounds new? Well, actually it isn’t. The history of this Swedish-origin motorbike manufacturer goes beyond eighteen century to the late 1680s. The company used to make muskets and hence the logo which resembles a gun sight.
Husqvarna started motorcycle manufacturing in 1903 and has been in the business for over a hundred years. The manufacturer has now made an entry into the Indian two-wheeler market with a classic café racer.
Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 characterized by its riveting looks is a great mix of old-school design and modern technology. ‘Vitpilen’ which translates to ‘White Arrow’ in Swedish seems just the right name for a bike with a sharp low-tucked stance and compact engine.
Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 with its minimal Swedish theme brings an unconventional design to the table. Whether its two frame bodywork, trimmed tail portion, circular headlamps, or capsule-shaped indicators, everything looks simple but appealing. The well-balanced design is complemented by a well-placed handlebar which offers the driver a nice and comfortable posture.
The bike houses a powerful 250 cc single-cylinder, BS-VI engine which generates 24 Nm of torque and 30 PS of power. A flawless transmission system featuring a 6-speed gearbox and slipper clutch is complemented by the power assist to offer a premium bike riding experience. The dynamic engine of Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 makes you feel assured with a steady performance while charging down the streets at top speed.
Having connections with KTM Duke 250 makes it rather easier to speculate that Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 is a performance beast. They both share the same 30 PS, single-cylinder BS-VI engine which has got huge admiration amongst the biking community. The low clip-on handlebar and elevated seat height offer you the ideal stance for taking sharp turns around the corners. The lighter body weight helps the cause as you accelerate with the ‘White Arrow’.
The distinguishing circular theme of Husqvarna Vitpilen 250’s headlight extends to its circular speed dial and mirrors. The bike has lots of white detailing throughout the body which adds to its minimal design. Bolstered with a durable trellis frame, futuristic tail lamps and dual-channel ABS system, Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 is bike high on features.
Formulated for the riders who want something more and different from their bikes, Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 stands tall on all the expectations. So if you want to try out this extraordinary bike that’ll grab some serious attention, head out to the nearest Varun KTM showroom and take a test ride today.
