Bajaj Auto’s Husqvarna brand planning to launch the Svartpilen 401 and Vitpilen 401 in India
In February 2020, Bajaj Auto launched the new Husqvarna brand. The new brand has introduced two 250cc bikes already this fall and now the company is going to launch two new bikes with bigger engines.
In an internal presentation by Husqvarna’s parent company Pierer Mobility, which was meant for investors, it was unveiled that the company is planning to launch the Svartpilen 401 and Vitpilen 401 in India towards the end of this year. The Bajaj Auto’s Husqvarna bikes will be competing with other 400cc bikes in India.
The Svartpilen 401 and Vitpilen 401 bikes have been spotted during test runs in various places. Similar to the 250cc versions, the bikes borrow their powertrain from their KTM cousins. The 400cc bikes will run on the same engine as the KTM 390 Duke. The liquid-cooled 373cc engine produces 43.5PS of power and 37Nm of torque.
