Husqvarna has revealed the production form of the Vitpilen 401 at the 2016 EICMA. Husqvarna describes the Vitpilen 401 is a simple, progressive street motorcycle which is expected to go on sale late 2017 in some markets. Sitting on the motorcycle immediately reveals a simple, pared back feel that is almost deliciously at odds with the sharply futuristic interpretations of nostalgic themes. The 401s are based on the same production platform as the KTM 390 Duke, and it is, in fact, the new KTM 390 platform as evinced by the bolt-on rear subframe. The engine is a 375cc single-cylinder with liquid-cooling and fuel-injection. The spec sheet says 44PS. Get all details on the Husqvarna Vitpilen 401 here.
