Swede Ride Bro: Husqvarna Releases New Svartpilen & Vitpilen Models For Australian Market

Having already teased the launch of a new road model back in 2014, Swedish-born / Italian-made Husqvarna (who found modern fame as the title-star in 2003’s god-awful remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) have finally fronted with the goods. With two new models set to hit our streets, the Vitpilen (meaning “white arrow”) is offered in both 401 and 701cc versions and the Svartpilen (you guessed it: “black arrow”) is only offered as a 401cc, it looks like they marque could be making a splash.

The Vitpilen is undeniably modern, from the Tron-esque LED ring headlamp to the short, stubby rear that suggests this bike was made for just the one person to enjoy, it’s part-classic café racer, part-futuristic street bike. The Svartpilen is more like a scrambler, but given their current popularity, it’s hard to imagine this bike not being an instant hit, especially considering the industrial edge in the design which, like its brother, fuses classic and modern elements in a way unique to Husqvarna.

Prices have yet to be announced, but there’s already a huge amount of hype online surrounding these crotch-rockets, and given that the brand has enough big-ticket fans, will surely be a regular sight on (and in the case of the Svartpilen, off) Aussie roads in 2018.
