While their penchant with Boxer is unending, we now see something out of the league yet remarkable.
The custom Husqvarna Svartpilen 401 a newcomer in their portfolio. The Svartpilen 401 has already established itself as a rugged urban scrambler in multiple geographies.
Let’s look at what team Revival Cycles have to say about their new urban scrambler custom.
‘Equipped with the KTM 373 liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine and utilizing a six-speed gearbox, it kicks out a punchy 44hp, with 27.3ft-lbs of torque.
Just over 330 pounds stock, its power-to-weight ratio provides a lively, nimble ride. The ride-by-wire throttle is crisp, fueled by a Bosch EFI with a 46mm throttle body.
The engine is housed in a steel Chromoly trellis frame and comes with stock WP suspension. It has 43mm open cartridge forks and a rear mono-shock. With wide bars and a tight turning radius, it’s ideal for urban riders.
The Svartpilen comes with ByBre callipers with 320 front and 230 rear discs and uses a Bosch ABS. The clutch is a mechanically operated PASC anti-hopping system.
The stock styling is eye-catching, with heritage references avoid clichè. It looks aggressive without falling into street fighter schtick. Ergonomically, it works well too.
Too often with small capacity bikes, the legroom and the seating position is cramped.But the Svartpilen leaves enough room for even a rider of six feet or more.
Our customer came to us for a mild custom beach hopper, but as is often the case, things quickly escalated.
He asked us for “raw metal brutalism,” so we focused on improving only what we felt needed to be improved. Relying on quality stock Husky pieces to complement our custom work.
We decided to focus on brushed aluminium body pieces to replace the plastics, creating a more futuristic styling. These were built entirely in-house by our skilled fabrication team.
We hand-formed the integrated tank shroud, as well as the side and seat panels, which we brush-finished. Revealing the classic Husqvarna logo in the mirror polish finish.
A bespoke aluminium front fender was also fabricated and brushed, displaying the polished Husqvarna logo.
So we incorporated one-off stainless steel luggage racks on the seat unit and the tank. At our customer’s request. We also repositioned the gauges at an improved angle, making them easier to see.
The team then fabricated a vintage-inspired headlight screen, using the factory headlight guard as a base/frame. It was brush-finished with a polished edging.
We added an aluminium skid plate was also brush-finished. Along with a custom muffler featuring an oval outlet and bespoke heat shield.
We cut down the existing chain guard and integrated a one-off license plate mount. The swingarm edges were sanded and contoured.
The team also worked off the sand-casting marks from the triple trees, which were then brush-finished and clear-coated. The bars and risers were replaced with LSL X02s, using in-house machined spacers.
Further, we installed folding peg mounts and new stainless pivoting bear trap pegs, and the rims come with new Continental Twinduro tires. Finally, we installed Motogadget M.blaze turn signals and mounted Motogadget m. View Classic Mirrors.
We’re pleased with the outcome: a practical build retains the innovation and quality of a beautiful stock Husqvarna. But with striking Revival signature design cues and premium finishes’.
To conclude, the brutal Husqvarna is made more lethal by keeping the Huskie DNA intact.
