Husqvarnas line-up comprises of Svartpilen and Vitpilen models, of which the former is a scrambler and the latter carries a caf© racer styling. The 250cc models bearing these names have been developed majorly for the Indian market. Notably, they borrow their styling from the Svartpilen 401 and the Vitpilen 401 which are currently available in the international markets.
The Vitpilen is an amalgamation of a retro caf© racer and a modern street bike in terms of design. It sports a round headlamp which is a full-LED unit. Sitting on top of it is a single-pod digital instrument cluster which shows ample of information. The angular fuel tank stretches up to under the riders seat and blends with a high-set, stubbly tail section integrating compact LED tail lamp. What distinguishes it from its scrambler version is clip-on handlebar and absence of metal cladding on the fuel tank.
Coming to the hardware, most of the components such as engine, frame, suspension and brakes are the same as the 250 Duke. Its 248.76cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine clings on to a steel trellis frame. Damping duties are handled by upside down forks and a monoshock, both sourced from WP. Dropping anchors are a 320mm disc upfront and a 230mm disc at the rear, both accompanied by ByBre calipers. Dual-channel ABS comes as a standard fitment.
In India, the Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 goes up against its own cousin, the KTM 250 Duke, along with other quarter-litre offerings including Suzuki Gixxer 250 and the Yamaha FZ25.
