Husqvarna Motorcycles has increased the price of two its models Svartpilen 250 and Vitpilen 250 by Rs 4736 in the Indian market. The two bikes were launched in February this year at an introductory price of Rs 1.80 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom) in the country. But this introductory price is no longer applicable on Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 and Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 as they will now cost Rs 1.84 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom) each. Besides the increase in price, the Swedish bikemaker has made no other changes in the motorcycles.
The Husqvarna twins were received extremely well by the bikers in India due to their electrifying appearance as it was never-seen-before in the country with a quarter-litre motorcycle. In addition, the belligerent pricing also helped both the bikes to grab headlines and carve a niche space for them. Some of the key features of Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 and Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 are All LED-lighting, fully-digital instrument cluster, Bosch ABS, Light and strong steel trellis frame, WP sourced suspension setup, Premium and high-quality materials and ByBre brakes. While the Vitpilen 250 boasts of a low-set of clip-on handlebars and lean-forward riding stance, the Svartpilen 250 depicts a scrambler model with a high-rise handlebar and relaxed seating position.

For the record, the Vitpilen 250 weighs at 153 kgs while the Svartpilen 250 weighs 152 kgs. Before the nationwide lockdown was announced on March 23 due to COVID-19 pandemic, the company had already sold 410 units of the duo in the Indian market.
