Husqvarna has announced the MSRPs for its 2018 Svartpilen and Vitpilen models in Canada.
When we first saw the Svartpilen and Vitpilen concepts at EICMA, the question was if they’d even reach production. Then, it was whether they’d come to Canada. With that confirmed, pricing was still a mystery, until now. Husky has the 2018 MSRPs, and these bikes are definitely commanding a premium price.
Both the Svartpilen and Vitpilen come in a 401 (pictured below) and the Vitpilen also comes in a 701 configuration (pictured above). The 401 models are based on KTM’s single-cylinder 390 platform, as also seen in the RC390, 390 Duke, etc. The 401 Vitpilen and 401 Svartpilen both have a $6,999 MSRP.
The 701 configuration is based on the KTM 690 engine, as used in the 690 Enduro and more recently in the Husqvarna 701 Enduro and Supermoto models. It’s the pinnacle of thumper technology, but that performance comes at a price. The 701 Vitpilen has a $13,999 MSRP this year.
