We’ll get into all the nitty-gritty details, including the bookings and pricing, in a while. In the meantime, let’s explore the Husqvarna bikes in detail, now that it is available in Nepal. (Read about Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 here).
In this article, we’ll put our focus on Husqvarna Vitpilen 250. Before we do that, the name is a mouthful and difficult.
Husqvarna is a Swedish name from a Swedish brand.
So, how’s it pronounced?
Husqvarna Vitpilen (pronounced as हुस्क्वर्ना भिटपिलेन), meaning white arrow.
Without further ado, let’s get started!

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Overview
Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 closely follows the design of its iconic 701 Supermoto model where it inspires to be minimalistic.
So, what’s the difference?
Vitpilen 250 is a café racer, daunting a brighter paint scheme, which goes well with the “white 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 cleaner look, best put as simple yet desirable with a single-piece seat, clip-on handlebars, and road tyres.
When compared with the Svartpilen, both share similar specs sheets with minimum visual differences. However, Vitpilen 250 comes with an aggressive riding position, something we’ve seen in KTM Duke and KTM RC.
Husqvarna Vitpilen 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.
Like I’ve said earlier, Husqvarna is a new brand in Nepal. But we’ve already seen it perform in the Nepali territory.
Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 is powered by the KTM Duke 250 engine.
Furthermore, there’s a lot of mechanical part-sharing between the two motorcycles. 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 Vitpilen 250 comes with a good number of features on hand. It shouldn’t be a major surprise since it does fall under the premium segment.
Here’s a quick list of features in Husqvarna Vitpilen 250.
Husqvarna Vitpilen 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
- Street Ready MRF Tyres
- Minimalistic Café Racer Design
- Clip-on Handle Bars
Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Price in Nepal and Availability
Husqvarna Motorcycles Nepal unveiled the launch through its social media channels.
As for the pricing, Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 price in Nepal is set at Rs. 5,69,900. 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 to the KTM 250cc BS6-compliant, at a far more accessible price range.
So, the main decision point would be the design.
Do you prefer a street motorcycle or offroading motorcycle?
If you want a street bike, go for Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 as it comes with cafe racer design along with the street-ready tyres. Besides these differences, the rest is pretty much the same as one another.
Frankly, I am interested to see how the riders 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 the practicality, do they? My guess, people will buy it for the power and performance on offer.
