Husqvarna Vitpilen 401 Spied, Waiting Launch 2017 In India

KTM-owned Swedish motorcycle brand Husqvarna will make its debut next year in India. This information was disclosed by the Pune-based two-wheeler manufacturer at its ninth Annual General Meeting. Like KTM, Husqvarna has a long history of building Enduro, Supermoto and Motocross motorcycles. The company’s Vitpilen 401 model, which will be launched in India was spied testing in Europe. As seen in the images, the upcoming Husqvarna gets its inspiration from the KTM 390 Duke. Alongside the development of Vitpilen 401, the KTM Duke is also getting a facelift. The test mule of the 390 Duke was spotted recently at Bajaj’s production facility in Chakan near Pune. The Husqvarna Vitpilen 401 will be powered by the proven 373cc fuel injected engine mated to a 6-speed transmission that runs the KTM 390 Duke.

The motor churns out a maximum power of 43PS and a peak torque of 35Nm. Along with the engine, Husqvarna also borrows the steel trellis frame of the KTM Duke for Vitpilen 401. The brake rotor on the Vitpilen 401 seems to be larger than the 390 Duke. That said, the facelift 390 Duke might also feature bigger brakes. Aesthetically, the Vitpilen 401 follows a retro path of cafe racers. The motorcycle will feature upside down forks, small headlamp and clip-on handlebars. A couple of months back, KTM's CEO, Stefan Pierer, revealed that the Husqvarna will be making its India debut by next year and the motorcycle will be manufactured at Bajaj’s production facility at Chakan in order to keep the price competitive.
