URBAN MOTORCYCLING REBOOTED
The SVARTPILEN 401 is a modern interpretation of the compact functionality and authentic riding approach that the iconic Silverpilen first captured all those years ago. Designed to offer a refreshingly simple new way for potential riders to access and experience urban Motorcycling for themselves. Rediscover your urban environment aboard this agile, functional and raw riding machine.
Realising the new vision
From concept in 2014 to functional refinement
To production bike in 2017
The Husqvarna SVARTPILEN 401 is a modern single-cylinder 4-stroke set in a compact and thoughtfully designed package. Beyond its styling and dark exterior, the focus is on functionality, so it comes with rugged street-legal knobbly tyres, a practical tank rack and more robust protection than its VITPILEN 401 sibling. This includes a protective skid-plate and exhaust protector. The riding position on the SVARTPILEN 401 is also more upright because of its higher and straighter bars.
