Svartpilen 250

On busy urban backstreets, the Svartpilen 250 rules supreme. A lightweight chassis and an upright riding position lend a commanding view of wayward traffic, while a punchy engine and brisk acceleration work to put space between you and the city. However, when the road ahead becomes a twisted ribbon of curves and creases, the SVARTPILEN 250 reminds you that it is a motorcycle - and it was built for this.
