The FK Motors Feiken TT 250, or Feiken TT250 for short, has been getting a lot of buzzes worldwide. At first sight, you might think Feiken copied Husqvarna’s design to create a Vitpilen lookalike.
However, this strange bike looks more like an emphatic retro-modern interpretation of the original Husqvarna brand.

A replica motorcycle is not a new concept, and neither are Chinese knockoffs of famous European brands.
However, this Feiken TT 250 stood out to us because even though the styling was familiar, some unique and intentional quirks immediately jumped out at us.
At first glance, the Feiken TT 250 looks like a Husqvarna Vitpilen with some questionable bolts and casting artefacts.
Husqvarna 401 Vitpilen
The 249cc single-cylinder makes 28hp at 9,750 rpm and 16 lb-ft of torque at 7,500 rpm.
The seat height is 31.1-inch seat height against the 32.9 inches of the Husqvarna 401.
The TT 250 gets 17-inch wheels 110/70 and 150/60 tires on the front and rear, similar to 401 Svarpilen.
Further, it arrives with a digital console, USD forks and gets 300mm front disc brake and 260mm rear disc brake. In the case of 401 Vitpilen, they are 320mm and 230mm.
It most noticeably has the Svartpilen’s distinctive swingarm-mounted rear fender, side-mounted indicators, and seat cowl.
Its front end mimics the Husqvarna siblings as well, though perhaps with a hint of Nuda flat track style thrown in for good measure.
The paint colours suit the bike, unlike KTM, which chose a yellowish mix that made it look garish and out of place at most lighting conditions.
We don’t know what to think about a brand making a replica of another brand’s bike.
Are they trying to undercut the market value of brand names? It is a question that comes to mind.
