The Svartpilen 701 concept: Husqvarna hijacks the flat tracker concept

The Svartpilen 401, pictured here, should have a bigger 701 version this fall.

Flat trackers are a North American idea, but Husqvarna has built their own take on it anyway, with the Svartpilen 701 concept bike.

Just like the Vitpilen production bike announced earlier today, the Svartpilen is powered by Husqvarna’s super-smooth single-cylinder engine, as found in the 701 Enduro. It should makeĀ 75 hp, 53 lb-ft of torque, unless Husqvarna has improved the motor by the time this makes it to market.

Now, Husqvarna hasn’t released a lot of other details on the Svartpilen, but after a year or two of teasing, you can expect the machine to show up as a production-ready motorcycle.
