Husqvarna revealed the Svartpilen 250 to the world at the 2019 India Bike Week. The motorcycle is expected to be launched in February and is likely to cost somewhere between Rs 2.2 lakhs to Rs 2.5 lakhs (ex-showroom).
It gets a styling similar to the bigger Svartpilen 401 and 701 which are inspired by retro scrambler-motorcycles. And to give it a retro appeal, the motorcycle features round mirrors and a round full-LED headlamp. The Svartpilen 250 also gets a distinctively-styled fuel tank, staying true to the Husqvarna family styling. The tank also features a ‘rack’ that lends the motorcycle a rugged look. The motorcycle sports a flat, split-seat and a short tail that features an LED tail lamp along with LED turn indicators. Meanwhile, the number plate holder is integrated into the tyre hugger.
Built on a tubular trellis frame, the motorcycle uses a 249cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine which produces 29.6bhp and 24Nm and come mated to a six-speed gearbox. The motorcycle rides on dual-sport tyres that are suspended from WP-sourced inverted forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. Meanwhile, braking will be done by a 300mm front disc and a 230mm rear disc along with a dual-channel ABS. Apart from this, the Svartpilen is equipped with a circular, single-pod LCD instrument cluster that completes its retro appeal.
