Husqvarna Vitpilen 401 2017


ALERT: Object – Rolling – Unidentified. Her name is Vitpilen. No roadster, no scrambler, or anything else. Its creators refusing to affiliate it with an already existing motorcycle category, it is a meeting of the third type. That said, with its daring and futuristic design, this meteor from nowhere will shake up the vintage and neo-retro trend. Like the “Husqvarna Nuda 900” before it (supermotard UFO), the Vitpilen has its own interpretation of form and space. She seems to come straight from another dimension, especially in her adopted segment, which cultivates anachronism and authenticity.

Well, some will retort that from the top of its four hundred small cm3, its galaxy of origin must not be very far … It is true that this displacement is a little disappointing, but in reality: we do not care. The market it will face makes it more of a show bike than a utility. Patrons of cafe-racers, neo-retro, and other preps favor pleasure through the object over pleasure through sensation. So the 397 cc single cylinder, its 44 hp and 3.8 mkg of torque will be enough..

Husqvarna Vitpilen 401 2017Stylistically, you will understand, she comes from another universe. The name “Vitpilen” means “white arrow” in Swedish. It evokes an incandescent saucer, crossing our atmosphere at full speed. Admittedly, the motorcycle cannot really claim the dynamic attributes of a space craft, but it largely assumes its pictorial attributes. Its lines are really very avant-garde. Evidenced by the quirky 10-liter tank, just out of the demoulder. The full led front light also reinforces this neo-modernism. We appreciate the uniqueness of its size, very compact and compact, especially thanks to the rear frame, shorter than the swingarm. This is a nice little toy for old and young alike, since she will be eligible for A2. After long years of absence from bitumen tapes (besides SM, not very far from the beaten track), Husqvarna has chosen to come back with a vengeance with a design that is far ahead of its time. Enough to catch up, and that’s all we want them to.

As for the chassis and the engine, this time we know where it comes from: the small KTM DUKE 390. The basis is therefore known: tubular trellis frame, 43 mm fork, single brake caliper with 4 pistons, virulent mono at high speed … a real little ball of nerves, full of good will. But, disguised as an alien device. Her outfit weighs her down a bit since she peaks at 148 kg dry, against the same weight but with the full made for the Katoche. Call E.T anyway, and tell him we found something better than Elliott’s bike basket for his return trip. Well, on the other hand, “home phone”, he forgets. While behavior appears to be assured, the electronic equipment is fairly rudimentary. It only has ABS (Bosh 9.11). Once again, that will be enough … Release scheduled for late fall 2017!

Sorry to destroy your ufology dreams, but we owe you a confession. We may have extrapolated a little bit about the spatial origin of the Husqvarna. The name “Vitpilen” does not come from space but directly from the past since it was already used in 1955 for a road model in the range.
