We were already expecting the production version of the Husqvarna Svartpilen and Vitpilen 401 to debut at the EICMA 2016. However, the Swedish motorcycle manufacturer also showcased a third offering based on the same platform. The 401 Aero concept is a collaborative effort of Husqvarna and design firm Kiska. While Husqvarna is calling it a concept, we believe this one will also enter production next year considering the fact that the701 and the two 401stoo are entering production. The Husqvarna 401 concept is based on the Vitpilen and gets an aerodynamic fairing along with a compact windscreen and a retro-styled round headlamp. Husqvarna states that the fairing allowsa more committed riding position.Get all the details on this retro-classic offering here.
