About Vitpilen 250

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 is a cafe racer bike available at a starting price of Rs. 2,17,076 in India. It is available in only 1 variant and 1 colour. The Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 is powered by 248.76cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 29.63 bhp and a torque of 24 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 comes up with anti-locking braking system. This Vitpilen 250 bike weighs 166 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 9.5 liters.

The Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 is a quarter-litre, cafe racer-styled motorcycle which shares its underpinnings and engine with the KTM 250 Duke. The motorcycle will be sold in India through KTM dealerships and production is being carried out at Bajaj’s facility in Chakan.

Husqvarna’s line-up comprises of Svartpilen and Vitpilen models, of which the former is a scrambler and the latter carries a café racer styling. The 250cc models bearing these names have been developed majorly for the Indian market. Notably, they borrow their styling from the Svartpilen 401 and the Vitpilen 401 which are currently available in the international markets.

The Vitpilen is an amalgamation of a retro café racer and a modern street bike in terms of design. It sports a round headlamp which is a full-LED unit. Sitting on top of it is a single-pod digital instrument cluster which shows ample of information. The angular fuel tank stretches up to under the rider’s seat and blends with a high-set, stubbly tail section integrating compact LED tail lamp. What distinguishes it from its scrambler version is clip-on handlebar and absence of metal cladding on the fuel tank.

Coming to the hardware, most of the components such as engine, frame, suspension and brakes are the same as the 250 Duke. Its 248.76cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine clings on to a steel trellis frame. Damping duties are handled by upside down forks and a monoshock, both sourced from WP. Dropping anchors are a 320mm disc upfront and a 230mm disc at the rear, both accompanied by ByBre calipers. Dual-channel ABS comes as a standard fitment.

In India, the Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 goes up against its own cousin, the KTM 250 Duke, along with other quarter-litre offerings including Suzuki Gixxer 250 and the Yamaha FZ25.

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • 250cc engine is loaded with power
    • Design is cool and quite different
    • Possibly one of the most comfortable café racers
  • Could be Better

    • Quite pricey
    • Too compact
    • Doesn’t have a decent road presence

BikeWale's Take

 The Vitpilen 250 is a café racer from Husqvarna that gets its engine from the KTM Duke 250. The motorcycle is loaded with decent power and features, but in terms of styling, the Vitpilen 250 looks different. It manages to stand out from the crowd, but due to its compact dimensions, the bike doesn’t have much ground clearance. 

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Review

Husqvarna Motorcycles has made their debut in India aiming to create a whole class of their own in the untapped premium lifestyle segment. Finding it hard to deny the visual draw of the Vitpilen 250, I hopped onto the bike to find out what it is all about.

Introduction

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Action

Well, before we get to the heart of the matter, Husqvarna Motorcycles, for those of you who skipped your motorcycle history lesson, is a Swedish brand formed in 1903. For most of their saga, Husqvarna was known for its prowess in motocross, even going on to be one of the first to manufacture the four-stroke motorcycle. Things started to change when Mr.Pierer came along and bought the company from BMW in 2013 and in 2016, Husqvarna showcased the first of the Svartpilen and Vitpilen- the 401s. 

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Fuel Tank

And just like its siblings, the Husqvarna Svartpilen and Vitpilen 250, sharing underpinnings with the KTM 250 Duke, have made their debut aiming to create a whole class of their own in the untapped premium lifestyle segment in India. 

With a chance to find out what the motorcycles are all about, I hopped on to the Vitpilen 250 because it was too hard to deny the visual draw of the cafe racer-styled bike. Now, let’s get into it!

The Visuals

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Front Left Three-Quarter

The Husqvarna Vitpilen 250’s design is unlike anything available in the market today. The cafe racer is simple and yet manages to catch one’s eye and have it effortlessly fixed onto itself. There is the flat LED headlamp which makes it look like a custom bike and the bulges on the tank that defy the traditional idea of how a fuel tank should look like. The design ends in a stubby rear section that is fitted with a characteristic ‘U-shaped’ LED tail lamp.  

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Tail lamp

Its body is majorly made from fibre. There’s a panel on the left that runs up to the sub-frame, a similar one on the right along with a single piece on top of the fuel tank. While it adds to the minimalist styling, it could prove to be expensive to repair/replace if damaged.  

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Rear three-quarter

Nevertheless, the quality of plastics as well as fit is top-notch all through and even looks upmarket. The premiumness reflects in the attention to detail like the embossed logo on the tank, seat, and branding inside the headlamp. It also gets a copper finished engine casing which looks neat. And while one would expect a bike whose name translates to ‘White Arrow’ in Swedish to be offered in white, it gets a brushed silver paint scheme. The quality of paint is good on the side panels but seemed to be chipping off on the glossy centre panel of our test bike.

The Package

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Instrument cluster

Husqvarna has equipped the Vitpilen 250 with a traditional LCD instrument cluster in a round casing that appeals to the retro side of things. The display features all the vitals along with a clock, two trip meters, and fuel consumption data. It is easy to read without having to take your eyes off the road, although the numbers on the tachometer don’t light up making it a tad difficult to read at night.  

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Headlamp

Speaking of which, the spread from the LED headlamp is good, but the reach could have been better and brighter. The Vitpilen is also fitted with a ‘Supermoto’ ABS mode that turns off the system to the rear wheel. The bike may not feature fancy or segment-first technology. Instead, by offering just what is needed, Husqvarna has suited the simple character of the motorcycle.   

The Ride

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Action

Swing a leg over the Vitpilen 250 and its tall seat height is the first thing you’ll notice. At 842mm, it is 19mm taller than the KTM 250 Duke so the average-sized Indian will be on their tip-toes. To make it easier to flat-foot the bike, the tank has been made slimmer, but that seems to compromise on knee grip. Furthermore, with its compact dimensions overall, the Vitpilen 250 would also be a tight fit for anyone around and above six feet.  

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Seat

Now, the seat which stretches up to a quarter of the tank has good cushioning and is accommodating enough, even with a pillion. Complementing the seat is the well-sorted suspension setup. This hardware is the same as the Duke’s, but it has been tuned to suit the Vitpilen. While the setup is pliant over minor undulations, the rear, which has 4mm lesser travel than the 250 Duke’s 161mm, tends to kick back on larger bumps.  

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Action

Being a cafe racer, the Vitpilen comes with clip-ons and an aggressive riding position that takes a while getting used to. However, the daunting bit is the large turning radius which is a snag while parking or making your way through stand still traffic. Don’t get me wrong, the Vitpilen is a nimble bike. It might not be as sharp as an RC but sifting through city traffic is a breeze. 

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Frame

The 249cc, single-cylinder engine housed between the trellis frame with its meaty mid-range and a smooth transmission play a huge part in the effortless experience. The motor comes across as vibey when cranked up but sounds pleasant as revs rise. On the other hand, it features a dumbed-down version of the KTM’s exhaust note which suits the Vitpilen’s character perfectly.  

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Action

Getting back to the engine, most of its punch is stored around 4000-7000rpm where the bike feels the liveliest. The throttle is smooth and if wringed harder, the motor peaks at 10,000rpm but you’ll have to fight through the extremely hand-numbing vibrations that creep in on the handlebar at 90kmph. These vibes settle down as speeds increase and the Vitpilen 250 feels stable even as it hits the limiter at 138kmph in sixth gear. 

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Front Wheel & Tyre

Although, better tyres would work wonders as the stock MRF Revz offers inconsistent grip, especially in the wet. Nonetheless, the brakes are confidence-inspiring and offer good feedback, and I quite liked the ABS- it works well and is surprisingly non-intrusive even under hard braking.   

Our Take

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Action

The Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 is positioned as a performance lifestyle product aimed at the young buyer wanting to stand out in a crowd. And even though it is based on the KTM 250 Duke, the Vitpilen 250 has a character of its own. 

Yes, its biggest selling points are the styling and premium feel. But it also offers a peppy engine, smooth gearbox, and good ride quality for the most part along with aggressive pricing. While Husqvarna is positioned as a more premium brand as compared to KTM in global markets, the Vitpilen 250 is priced at Rs 1.84 lakh; around Rs 24,000 lesser than the 250 Duke in India making it an enticing option. This is because Husqvarna is a completely new name in the country and the 250s are here to set the base.  

Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Action

Nevertheless, on the flip side, the Vitpilen 250 does have some downsides like the small 9.5-litre fuel tank which might limit how far one can go without stopping for fuel. It is also built to cater to a limited consumer base and surely isn't for taller individuals. And lastly, the riding experience could have been even better if the Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 did away with its mid-range vibrations.
