Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 Overview
Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 closely follows the design of its iconic 701 Supermoto model.
So, what’s the difference?
Svartpilen 250 is a scrambler, daunting a darker paint scheme, which goes well with the “black arrow” in its name.
The bike follows a minimalistic approach with a unibody feel. It does come off as a mix-match of a modern classic, where the shrunken rear pushes for a distinct style.
Additionally, it also gets a tank rack, 17-inch cast wheels, dual-purpose MRF tyres, split-seat, and a tall single-piece handlebar.
Honestly, it is quite difficult to explain just how different the Husqvarna looks. Especially since it is the first time we see a design of this caliber brought to the mass market.
Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 is powered by the same 248.8cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, BS6-compliant FI engine. It can generate a max power of 30 PS at 9000rpm and max torque of 24Nm at 7500rpm.
Additionally, it is mated to a 6-speed gearbox with a fuel capacity of just 9.5-liters.
While Husqvarna is a new brand, we’ve already seen it perform in the Nepali territory.
Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 is a KTM Duke 250 by heart. Being part of the same brand, there’s a lot of parts sharing between the two motorcycles.
Firstly, it is built on the Duke’s Steel Trellis Frame chassis. Moreover, it also gets the same disc brakes, suspension setup, and back-lit switches.
Husqvarna 250 will share the mechanical DNA with KTM 250, where the difference will be limited to visual feel.
Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 comes with a good number of features. It shouldn’t be a major surprise since it does fall under the premium segment.
Here’s a quick list of features in Husqvarna Svartpilen 250.
Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 Feature Highlights
- Steel Trellis Frame for Superior Handling
- Dual-Channel ABS
- Dual-Disc BYBRE Brakes
- WP USD Front Suspension and WP Rear Mono Shock Suspension
- Circular All-Digital Instrument Cluster
- All LED Lights
- Tank Rack
- Dual-Purpose MRF Tyres
- Minimalistic Darker Scrambler Design
- Taller-Single Piece Handle Bar
- Upright Riding Position
Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 Price in Nepal and Availability
Husqvarna Motorcycles Nepal unveiled the launch through its social media channels.
As for the pricing, Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 price in Nepal is set at Rs. 5,89,900. As expected, both Svartpilen and Vitpilen come at the same price, which makes things a lot easier.
Booking is now open! Moreover, the bikes will be available for purchase across all KTM showrooms.
The price will get riders to access the KTM 250cc BS6-compliant, at a far more accessible price range.
So, the main decision point would be the design.
Do you prefer an offroader motorcycle or street motorcycle?
If you want an offroader, go for Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 as it comes with dual-purpose tires and a tank rack. Besides these differences, the rest is pretty much the same as one another.
Frankly, I am interested to see how the rider will react to it. The shorter tail section and 835mm seat-height cut out few points in practicality.
However, people won’t buy Husqvarna for practicality, do they? My guess, people will buy it for the power and performance on offer.
