Taking a more scrambler-like approach of Husqvarna’s smaller-displacement streetbikes is the Svartpilen 401. This standard bike’s spoked wheels wrapped in blocked rubber and upright ergonomics make it an urban machine with an explorative attitude, differentiating it from the café-styled Vitpilen 401. Like its sibling, this machine floats on WP Apex suspension, stops with ByBre brakes, and runs on a 373cc single-cylinder thumper. The urban roads and rough side streets look pretty inviting from the cockpit of this Husky.
