Husqvarna recently unveiled the Svartpilen 200 which is based on KTM’s 200 Duke. The bike will make its way to India after the Svartpilen 250 sometime in 2020. And before it arrives, we bring to you details of the motorcycle through this image gallery.
The Svartpilen 200 borrows its design entirely from the Svarpilen 250 that was showcased at the 2019 India Bike Week. It sports a circular, full-LED headlamp that is flanked by LED turn-indicators. It also gets round mirrors that further add to its retro appeal.
And just like its other siblings, the Svartpilen 200 has a uniquely-designed fuel tank with a ‘rack’ on the top. At the rear, the motorcycle sports a cropped fender that features the LED tail lamp and turn indicators. Meanwhile the number plate holder is fitted on its tyre hugger.
It is built on a tubular trellis frame like its cousin the KTM 200 Duke and houses a 199cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine which produces 24.6bhp of power and 19.2Nm of torque.
The Svartpilen 200 rides on inverted forks up front from WP and a monoshock at the rear. Meanwhile, braking hardware consists of 300mm disc for the front and a 230mm disc at the rear with single-channel ABS.
Husqvarna has equipped the Svartpilen 200 with a single-pod LCD instrument cluster that adds to the motorcycle’s retro character. With the bike expected to be launched in the latter half of 2020, it will be positioned above the KTM 200 Duke. It is likely to be priced around Rs 1.8 lakhs to Rs 2 lakhs, ex-showroom.
