We don’t care this is only a concept. We don’t care it’s no good for riding through Mongolia, or down the road for a pack of smokes. We don’t even care that it’s not Italian, or that we’re not quite sure what “Vitpilen” means in Swedish (It means “white arrow” – Ed.).
The Husqvarna Vitpilen 401 Aero is the most stunning motorcycle at EICMA this year. There – we said it.
It’s a single-cylinder “real street” bike based on the 375 cc engine in the regular Vitpilen 401, but with a fairing designed to both cut through the wind and provide optimal cooling.
Husqvarna says the windshield encourages a more locked-in position, so “the rider’s helmet becomes part of the airflow in what is a fully immersive riding position.”
It’s probably damn uncomfortable, but did we mention that we don’t care?
