Next-gen Husqvarna Svartpilen 401 spied; looks ready for launch

The upcoming Svartpilen 401 will be based on the next-gen KTM 390 Duke.

New images of the next-gen Husqvarna Svartpilen 401 have surfaced online. A production-ready prototype was recently spotted at a factory yard, revealing several details of the new bike.

The new Svartpilen 401 appears to have redesigned bodywork but retains a familiar fuel tank design. The bike has a single-piece seat and a narrow tail section with a grab rail at the back.

The new Svartpilen 401 shares its new chassis with the next-gen KTM 390 Duke. It is equipped with an upside-down fork at the front and an offset mono-shock at the rear.

The Svartpilen 401 will also use the same engine as the 390 Duke. Reports suggest that the new unit could have a larger capacity and thus improved performance.
