Husqvarna has taken the wraps off the all-new Svartpilen 125. While it will be available in international markets soon, it is also likely to make its way to India in the coming years. So here we tell you all there is to know about the Husqvarna Svartpilen 125.
The Svartpilen 125 is now the smallest offering in the Husqvarna range. And much like its siblings, the Svartpilen 125 follows the same design language- that of a neo-retro scrambler motorcycle. The minimalistic stylin incorporates the round, full-LED headlamp, a distinctive looking fuel tank with a luggage rack mounted on it. The Husqvaran Svartpilen 125 also rides on dual-purpose tyres like its older siblings. However, unlike the Svartpilen 250 that is sold in India, the Svartpilen 125 gets spoke wheels.
Now the Husqvarna Svartpilen 125 borrows most of its hardware from the 125 Duke. It also uses the same 124cc, single-cylinder motor that is liquid-cooled. The motor churns out 15bhp of power and 12Nm of torque and comes mated to a six-speed gearbox.
For a 125cc motorcycle Husqvarna Svartpilen 125 is well-equipped with premium components. Built on a steel trellis frame, it rides on Pirelli Scorpion STR tyres. Meanwhile suspension duties include WP 43mm upside-down forks at the front and a WP monoshock at the rear whereas braking is done by ByBre callipers at both ends.
Now we can expect Husqvarna to launch the Svartpilen 125 in India in the near future along with the cafe-racer styled Vitpilen 125. And going by the pricing of the 250cc variants in India, the Husqvarna 125s are likely be priced slightly lower than the KTM 125 Duke which costs Rs 1.51 lakh.
