- Prices hiked by up to Rs 9,728
- Both bikes have received multiple price hikes since launch
Husqvarna’s quarter-litre twins, the Svartpilen 250 and the Vitpilen 250 have joined the price hike spree that begun from 1 April 2021 and are substantially more expensive now. While the Vitpilen 250 has become dearer by Rs 8,717, the Svartpilen 250 demands a heftier premium of Rs 9,728. The new ex-showroom (Mumbai) prices of both bikes are as follows:
Husqvarna Svartpilen 250: Rs 1,98,720
Husqvarna Vitpilen 250: Rs 1,98,093
Bajaj had launched both the Huskies in February 2020 in India with a price tag of Rs 1.80 lakh (ex-showroom). Since then, both bikes have received multiple price hikes, resultantly getting around Rs 19,000 dearer now as compared to their introductory prices.
The Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 is a scrambler-styled offering and the Vitpilen 250 is its café-racer trim. Both bikes boast very distinctive looks with an elegant combination of retro and modern styling. But a majority of cycle parts like the chassis, wheels, suspension and brakes are borrowed from the KTM 250 Duke. And the 248.76cc, liquid-cooled motor is also the same that churns out 29.63bhp of power and 24Nm of peak torque.
