Brand-New 2024 Husqvarna Svartpilen 801

A powerful, scrambler-inspired street motorcycle debuts worldwide.

Husqvarna Motorcycles launched its all-new and powerful naked motorcycle, the 2024 Svartpilen 801. Combining performance, agility and a contemporary scrambler-inspired design, the Svartpilen 801 is the latest and largest displacement naked machine in the brand’s lineup. Engineered to elevate the road riding experience and escape the ordinary, this exceptional motorcycle sets a new standard of excellence for middleweight street models.

Weighing just 399 pounds (181 kilograms), the Svartpilen 801 is built around a strong and light chromium-molybdenum tubular steel frame for a precise balance of flex and rigidity. At its heart is a powerful 799cc, parallel-twin, dual overhead-camshaft (DOHC) engine. Tipping the scales at 114.6 pounds (52 kilograms) dry, the engine offers exceptional power output with its reliability and efficiency guaranteed by innovative technologies that extend service intervals to 15,000 kilometers and ensure an extremely low fuel consumption.

The pairing of its lightweight engine and frame gives the Svartpilen 801 a perfectly balanced power-to-weight ratio, resulting in a consistently agile and exciting ride. A Power Assist Slipper Clutch (PASC) system maximizes traction under hard acceleration and prevents instability under hard braking, with an Easy Shift providing seamless gear changes. Adjustable WP APEX suspension offers 140 millimeters of fork travel and 150 millimeters of shock travel for assured comfort and handling both in and out of town. Pirelli MT60 RS tires, which are fitted to 17-inch wheels, provide a high level of grip and feedback.

The minimalist look of the Svartpilen 801 is achieved by its premium details, such as the LED lights and aluminum handlebars coming together to create a unique and eye-catching street machine. Slimline ergonomic bodywork finished in dark tones wraps neatly around the engine and frame with a two-piece seat offering a high level of comfort and unrestricted movement.

State-of-the-art electronic aids improve the rideability of the Svartpilen 801 with an optional Dynamic Pack taking the street riding experience to an even higher level. In addition to adjustable Motorcycle Traction Control (MTC) and anti-lock brakes (ABS), Street, Rain and Sport ride modes are pre-set options included as standard. The Dynamic Pack introduces Motor Slip Regulation (MSR) for controlled deceleration with the Anti-Wheelie mode limiting the maximum wheelie angle.

A best-in-class technology package provides ease of use and maximum performance for every rider. The J.Juan brake system delivers exceptional stopping power thanks to the corner-sensitive Bosch ABS system. For advanced riders, a Supermoto ABS mode can be engaged by those looking for a heightened level of braking feel and a closer connection with the road.

Versatility is enhanced by premium electronic features, including a 5-inch TFT dashboard and Connectivity Unit as standard. Pairing the unit with the Ride Husqvarna Motorcycles app allows for clear Turn-by-Turn navigation to be activated as well as the ability to control telephone calls and music selection. A Hazard Warning light switch is also integrated into the handlebar controls while anti-theft protection is provided via the immobilizer.
