HQVA press release:
Simple. Progressive. Those two words define the all-new Husqvarna Motorcycles Real Street Range and Husqvarna Motorcycles Australia is pleased to announce the arrival of its Husqvarna VITPILEN 401 and SVARTPILEN 401 models.
Now available from authorised Husqvarna Motorcycles Real Street Dealers throughout Australia and each at the ride away price of $11,592.00, the VITPILEN 401 and SVARTPILEN 401 are the new gateway to motorcycle culture.
Subtly-styled and stripped of all that is unnecessary for a lightweight finish, the VITPILEN 401 makes urban motorcycling more accessible and inviting than ever before while boasting a modern minimalistic design. Progressive in its sleek appearance, 17-inch bronze anodised spoked wheels feature distinctive electric yellow VITPILEN 401 detailing highlights.
Clip-on handlebars attached to forged aluminium triple clamps are a central focal point, as are the front and rear LED lights that contribute significantly to visibility and safety. The seat
uses high-quality foam and Nabuk leather fabric to seamlessly match the bodywork, alongside an integrated fuel tank design that includes an aluminium filler cap with a humble, but bold Husqvarna Motorcycles logo.
Technically, the VITPILEN 401 is powered by a modern 375cc single-cylinder engine that is remarkably compact, generating 32kW (44hp) and 37Nm of torque down low, combined with a six-speed gearbox. The two-part exhaust system includes an aluminium silencer, finished with a raw look and the iconic Husqvarna logo.
Riders will be thrilled with the WP Suspension – 43mm open cartridge forks at the front and a progressive system connected directly to the swing-arm at the rear – that offers dynamic handling, optimal for challenging urban environments. Stopping power comes courtesy of hydraulic ByBre disk brake callipers in combination with 320mm front and 230mm rear perforated steel discs, fitted with a state-of-the-art Bosch ABS system that can be fully disengaged for more advanced riders.
Alongside, the Husqvarna SVARTPILEN 401 draws inspiration from Husqvarna Motorcycles’ pioneering heritage, rugged and timeless in its appeal. A technically-advanced package that is certain to capture the attention of those desiring individuality, its black colour, rugged tyres and protective parts provide a thrilling ride to meet the demands of urban exploration.
It too is fitted with 17-inch spoked wheels, central to the SVARTPILEN 401’s character while being very robust and offering premium reliability. Off-road style handlebars and risers add to that modern look, in addition to lights using the latest LED technology and a quality foam/leather fabric seat that’s seamlessly suited to the narrow bodywork.
A unique aluminium filler cap proudly displays the Husqvarna Motorcycles logo, like a stamp of premium quality on the fuel tank, which also features a standard luggage rack for light luggage.
Its matt black aluminium silencer has a heat shield as standard to fit in well with the design, along with each of the shared technical and performance attributes that are also found upon the VITPILEN 401.
