Another EICMA release: Husqvarna 401 Vitpilen
Another exciting release we can look forward to is the Husqvarna 401 Vitpilen, perhaps known to some as the ‘White Arrow’ when translated from Swedish.
The Vitpilen first arrived in concept form around two years ago at EICMA, so it was no surprise when the manufacturer announced they would be debuting two exciting new street bikes at EICMA, that one of them would be the 401 Vitpilen, the brands exciting take on the KTM duke 390.
From what we can see, not a lot has changed from the concept model. It appears the manufacturer was happy with everything they had come up with. When in production, the manufacturer had stated that the driving force was ‘less is more’ which has clearly worked wonders for the new model, as the bike carries a 373-cc single cylinder engine with 43 bhp and weights a total of 135 kg.
In fact, just so you can see for yourself, we’ve posted the teaser videos below so you can get a quick sneak peek.
