The two new motorcycles feature a round shaped LED head-lamp outlined with daytime running lamps and a contemporary street fighter look. According to Husqvarna, the Vitpilen 401 and Svartpilen 401 have been made to provide a pure riding experience.

If features a single-cylinder 375cc engine housed in a stripped down steel-trellis frame. The engine and the frame are borrowed from the KTM 390 Duke. The engine produces 43 horsepower and 37Nm of torque paired to a six-speed transmission.

According to some inside information, Stefan Pierer will also use KTM distributors to bring the new Husqvarna motorcycles to markets where Husqvarna is currently not represented.
