Next Generation Husqvarna Svartpilen 125 and 400 have been spotted testing in Europe, promising a bulk of changes on the motorcycle. The spy images showcase a camouflaged test mule, and the models are expected to arrive with styling and feature upgrades, along with new generation KTM platform underpinnings as well.
The spy shots hint at a revised frame on the Husqvarna Svartpilen twins, while the test mule shows a larger flyscreen above the headlamp cluster and new mounting points at the rear for soft luggage. The test mule is also riding on new alloy wheels similar to the ones on KTM motorcycles.
Details are yet to be confirmed but the Husqvarna Svartpilen 125 is likely to continue using the 124cc single-cylinder engine from the KTM 125 Duke. The same applies for the Husqvarna 400. Expect to see a few changes made to the engine to be more responsive, efficient and lower on emissions, with power figures being adjusted accordingly.
The Next Generation Husqvarna Svartpilen 125 and 400 launch will happen in many countries. India will get the 250 and 400cc version. 250cc is infact almost ready for launch. It’ll also be interesting to see Husqvarna bring the Svartpilen 400 to India in the future. The model is sold globally and is made in India. That said, a global launch of the new Husqvarna range will take place first before the new generation Duke reveal happens in June-September 2023 quarter.
India could get the 250 and 400 this time. We know the facelifted bike never made it here and it got changes to the seat height, but now we are getting an all new Husqvarna directly.
