01. The lines
Distinguished by its bold white tank covers, which offer the perfect contrast against its largely dark demeanour, the Vitpilen 401 certainly stands out from the crowd. The bodywork is slim and minimal to ensure a comfortable ride while the bronze engine covers add the finishing touches to this unique yet understated machine.
New front and rear LED lights offer improved illumination, particularly in low-light conditions. By using the latest LED technology for advanced lighting performance and enhanced visibility, riding through urban environments is safer for both the rider and other road users. The LED positioning ring on the front light acts as a daylight running light and gives the Vitpilen a distinctive premium look.
Higher and straighter roadster style handlebars are fitted together with black anodised, forged aluminium triple clamps that feature a revised offset to improve stability. In keeping with the minimalistic look of the authentic design, the handlebar-mounted dashboard only displays essential information - speed, fuel level, and the selected gear.
The aesthetically formed, 13-litre fuel tank is a central feature of the Vitpilen 401. Contributing to the distinctive look of the machine, the tank cover seamlessly blends into the side panels to ensure movements on the machine are completely unrestricted. The tank is complete with an aluminium filler cap featuring the iconic Husqvarna Motorcycles logo.
A new bolt-on trellis subframe lowers the height of the one-piece rider and pillion seat to 820 mm, to ensure the Vitpilen 401 accommodates a wider range of riders. Comfort is assured thanks to the revised curvature of the seat foam and the high-quality materials used to manufacture the cover.
