Husqvarna Motorcycles has introduced the all-new 2024 generation Vitpilen and Svartpilen models. Featuring the biggest technical updates to the ranges since their introduction in 2018, the completely redesigned Vitpilen 401 and Svartpilen 401 feature entirely new engines, new chassis, class-leading technology and new styling.
From urban commuting to weekend exploration, the newest Vitpilen and Svartpilen models have been designed to offer a consistently fun, memorable and dynamic riding experience. Aboard these new machines, riders both young and experienced can disrupt and escape the ordinary.
An all-new steel trellis frame preserves the much-loved agility of the Vitpilen and Svartpilen, with a lightweight aluminum swingarm and WP suspension on each machine ensuring predictable handling. The 2024 machines also feature a longer wheelbase, a new frame and a revised seat height, improving cornering behavior while keeping their renowned stability. The Vitpilen 401 further benefits from new handlebars that offer reduced weight for highly responsive steering.
Housed inside an updated steel trellis chassis, the 2024 Vitpilen 401 and Svartpilen 401 are powered by a new 399cc, single-cylinder engine delivering increased performance, paired with improved weight distribution and a revised gearbox. Combined with a new aluminum swingarm, the motorcycles’ much-loved nimble handling gives excellent rider feedback. The Vitpilen 401 and Svartpilen 401 also share key technology, including cornering motorcycle traction control (MTC), switchable ride modes, adjustable WP suspension, ByBre brakes and Bosch cornering-sensitive anti-lock brakes (ABS) that deliver powerful stopping. Easy Shift technology allows clutchless gear changes, while a 5-inch bonded glass TFT display, premium paint finish with decals and 17-inch wheels complete the unmistakable style of the Vitpilen and Svartpilen models.
