Husqvarna has made its debut in the Indian market with two neo-classic offerings, the Svartpilen 250 scrambler and the Vitpilen 250 cafe racer. With both these motorcycles, Husqvarna is claiming to offer a lifestyle aspect to the popular quarter-litre motorcycle segment in India. Based on the KTM Duke 250, both the Huskies carry the same hardware as its Austrian cousin. However, where they differentiate from the KTMs is the styling and the attention to detail which is impressive. And then when you consider its pricing of Rs 1.84 lakh, ex-showroom, making it up to Rs. 25,000 more accessible than the Duke, it makes for a strong case. Read our detailed first ride of both the motorcycles here. Scroll below to take a detailed look at the images of the Svartpilen 250 scrambler.

The styling of the Husqvarna is identical to that of its larger-displacement siblings

The Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 features raised single-piece handlebar and eight-spoke alloys as opposed to clip-ons and five-spoke alloys on the Vitpilen 250

The overall dimensions of both the Huskies are quite compact when compared to its rivals in the same segment

The overall proportions of the design are impressive and have a premium appeal

The floating tail has the compact LED taillight neatly tucked underneath

The side panel, which is essentially a large tank extension running towards the rear, dominates the overall design of the Husqvarna Svartpilen 250

The circular LED DRL adds a neo-classic touch, paired with the sleek LED indicators

Unlike other motorcycles, that have a vinyl naming, the Huskies proudly feature the model name on the fuel tank

The tiny 250 sticker is positioned just underneath the pillion grab handle.

The Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 features 43mm WP Apex USD forks in the front

Giving it the scrambler credentials are the MRF Revz FD dual-purpose tyres, that can handle trails quite nicely

The circular LCD instrumentation carries the round design theme of the headlight and displays all the essentials

Another differentiating factor among the two Huskies are the tank mounted luggage rack

The Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 scrambler rides on 8-spoke alloys and also gets a switchable rear ABS

The model naming is seen at different places like this on the alloy wheel

Nestled in the Trellis frame is the single-cylinder 250cc engine shared with the KTM. The engine casing design too is unchanged

The exposed radiator gets an interesting yellow window which adds a contrasting touch to the whole black design

The scrambler gets a two-piece seat, which offers decent comfort provided you are commuting in the city. The pillion seat comfort is comparable isn't the best

Husqvarna branding seen on the grips as well

Switchgear quality is decent for the segment and the price

The suspension travel of the front and rear are identical for the cafe racer and the scrambler

Differentiating itself from the cafe racer are the raised handlebar and the luggage rack mounted on the fuel tank.

The LED taillight has been neatly tucked under the pillion seat. Looks a tad too simple

The biggest highlight of the Husqvarnas has to be its compact design

Though it is based on the KTM Duke 250, the Husqvarnas have their distinct appeal

The rear tyre hugger also doubles up as a number plate holder.

The Husqvarnas are compact but yet very accommodating for larger riders like myself.

You can stand on the pegs and hold the raised handlebar but the tank design makes it a tad inconvenient.

The Svartpilen is an urban scrambler, meaning it is not meant to go off-road. However, it can handle trails decently

Now, that's how a scrambler should look!

We did muscle it around muck and the Svartpilen was not complaining. Clearly, it wasn't too comfortable either
