Husqvarna Motorcycles made its Nepal debut with the launch of the Svartpilen 250 and Vitpilen 250. They are distributed in Nepal by Hansraj Hulaschand and Co. Pvt. Ltd.
The Vitpilen is a café racer-style bike, while the Svartpilen is a scrambler. Both bikes are powered by the same BS6-compliant 248.8 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that does duty in the KTM 250 Duke. The motor produces 29.5 hp at 9,000 rpm and 24 Nm of torque at 7,500 rpm. A gearbox is a six-speed unit, and both bikes are equipped with a slip and assist clutch.
Both the bikes share their underpinnings with the KTM 250 Duke including the drivetrain. Key highlights include a neo-retro design language, lightweight steel trellis frame, WP suspension with upside-down forks, Bosch Dual Channel ABS system, LED headlight and taillight, and 17” cast-aluminum wheels.
The Svartpilen 250’s dark color with a contrasting fuel tank, white accents, and a silver tail section give the motorcycle a rigorous look as compared to the Vitpilen 250. The Vitpilen 250, on the other hand, gets a white fuel tank with a grey tail section and silver accents.
Suspension duties on the 250 twins are taken care of by upside-down WP fork at the front and a monoshock with adjustable preload at the rear. Both ends offer 142mm of travel. In terms of braking, both the motorcycles get the same brake setup – a 320 mm disc Bybre four-piston caliper on the front wheel and a single-piston caliper on a 230 mm disc on the rear wheel, supported by a dual-channel ABS.
Both the motorcycles only hold 9.5-liters of fuel and the claimed fuel efficiency is 35 kmpl. Ground clearance stands at 145mm and the seat height is a massive 835mm.
The Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 and Vitpilen 250 are both priced at NPR 6,54,900.
The Husqvarna twins will be sold out of KTM Showrooms.
