Husqvarna Motorcycles is pleased to present the exciting, all-new 2024 generation Vitpilen and Svartpilen models. Here in the country, it is likely that only the Svartpilen 401 will be released in the market.

Husqvarna Motorcycles is pleased to present the exciting, all-new 2024 generation Vitpilen and Svartpilen models. Featuring the biggest technical updates to the ranges since their introduction in 2018, the completely redesigned Vitpilen 401, Vitpilen 125, Svartpilen 401, Svartpilen 250, and Svartpilen 125 all feature entirely new engines, new chassis, class-leading technology, and new styling.

From urban commuting to weekend exploration, the newest Vitpilen and Svartpilen models have been designed to offer a consistently fun, memorable, and dynamic riding experience. Aboard these new machines, riders both young and experienced can disrupt and escape the ordinary.

An all-new steel trellis frame preserves the much-loved agility of the Vitpilen and Svartpilen models, with a lightweight aluminum swingarm and WP suspension on each machine ensuring predictable handling. The 2024 machines also feature a longer wheelbase, new frame, and a revised seat height, improving their cornering behavior while keeping their renowned stability. The Vitpilen models further benefit from new handlebars that offer reduced weight for highly responsive steering. Powering the 2024 range is a new and more compact engine family, EURO 5+-compliant with an improved weight distribution and revised gearbox.

New 399 cc engine for the 401 models

The previous 401 models are powered by a Bajaj-sourced 373 cc engine capable of churning out 45 PS of power. For 2024-onwards, these new 401 models will be enjoying a single-cylinder, 399 cc engine – now with 46 PS of power. That’s not much, but still an improvement from the previous model.

Also new for 2024 is the revised steel trellis frame and aluminum swingarm. Other features include cornering traction control, ride modes, adjustable WP suspension, ByBre brakes and Bosch cornering-sensitive ABS. Easy Shift technology (quick-shifter) allows clutchless gear changes while a 5” bonded glass TFT display, premium paint finish with decals, and 17” wheels complete the unmistakable style of the Vitpilen and Svartpilen models.

PH availability is to be announced by KTM/Husqvarna Philippines.
