The Husqvarna Svartpilen 125 isn’t just a solid new release. Looking like something straight of an apocalyptic zombie flick, this stylish urban motorcycle has all the features you could want, and it comes with the Husqvarna reputation for being a solid workhorse of a machine. The ruggedness of the Husqvarna Svartpilen 125 starts with a set of Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tires on the 17-inch rims. Husqvarna equipped the Svartpilen 125 with hydraulic ByBre brakes and the Bosch ABS technology, giving you superior control over the bike regardless of conditions.
The WP APEX 43 mm open cartridge forks pair nicely with the WP APEX rear shock for better handling and a smoother ride. Powering the bike is a 125 cc EURO 5 compliant engine that offers plenty of power while preserving fuel. The engine features a single-cylinder, liquid-cooled design and has a twin overhead camshaft. It can produce 15 horsepower and 12Nm of torque, which it feeds into a six-speed gearbox. You can expect to get about a 62 mile per hour top speed out of the Svartpilen 125.
Husqvarna remains true to its practice of keeping its bikes lightweight and narrow. With a dry weight of 146kg, and a tank size of 9/5 litres, you’ll be able to get wherever you’re going. Plus, the bike has a classic and classy look, thanks to the black powder-coated frame and silver bodywork. And for the urban setting, you’ll appreciate the LED lights.
This is a nimble little bike that would serve well for a beginner, but would also be a reliable ride when you need it most. It is, after all, made by a company that knows about creating equipment that you can rely on. And that’s what you want when the zombies come.
