Introducing the Husqvarna Svartpilen 801 A Game-Changing Bike

Austrian motorcycle manufacturer Husqvarna is renowned for its distinct lineup of naked bikes, with the Vitpilen and Svartpilen families stealing the limelight. Recently, the Svartpilen series welcomed its largest displacement naked bike yet into the fold: the Svartpilen 801.

The Svartpilen, translating to “Black Arrows,” previously comprised three models: the 125, 250, and 401, each named after their engine displacement. Following tradition, the 801 joins as the flagship, akin to a new CEO taking the reins.

Promising to set a new standard for middleweight street models, the Svartpilen 801 boasts a minimalist design that belies its formidable capabilities. Clad in dark tones with limited bodywork, it exudes a scrambler-style aesthetic.

Underneath its sleek exterior lies a chromium-molybdenum tubular steel frame, with the engine serving as a stressed member. Weighing just 399 pounds with standard equipment, its nimbleness is accentuated by a parallel-twin DOHC engine displacing 799cc, delivering 105 horsepower and 87 Nm of torque.

The engine’s prowess is complemented by a Power Assist Slipper Clutch (PASC) system for enhanced traction and an Easy Shift mechanism for seamless gear changes. Supported by adjustable WP APEX suspension and Pirelli tires on 17-inch wheels, the Svartpilen 801 ensures a dynamic riding experience.

Equipped with Motorcycle Traction Control (MTC), ABS, and selectable ride modes, including an optional Dynamic mode, the 801 offers versatility and safety. Optional features like Motor Slip Regulation (MSR) and Anti-Wheelie mode further enhance its performance capabilities.

With seating for two and advanced tech like turn-by-turn navigation via the Ride app on a five-inch TFT screen, the Svartpilen 801 balances comfort and connectivity. Safety features include integrated hazard warning and anti-theft protection systems.

Scheduled for global release in April 2024, pricing details for most markets remain undisclosed. However, in the U.S., the Svartpilen 801 is positioned as a formidable contender in the naked bike segment, priced under $11,000.
