Husqvarna plans to bring a stripped-down version of elder Svartpilen 250. And they are looking forward to getting it in the 125cc range.
They should, as the portfolio does show a gap when it comes to lower displacement variants.
Their portfolio consists of Svartpilen 701,401 while we see the youngest the Svartpilen 250cc in India.
Well, the base used will be KTM ‘s recently launched 125cc Duke in India.
We haven’t seen any prototype or any official documents as yet.
However, in Europe Husqvarna plans to introduce it the first half of this year.
The new 2021 KTM Duke 125 comes with a BS6-compliant 124.7cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor calibrates to 14.3 BHP @ 9,250 rpm and 12 Nm @ 8,000 rpm. The motor further gets a 6-speed transmission.
And the same motor we may see it in the upcoming Husqvarna 125cc. The BS6 norms in India are equivalent to Euro5 in criteria. In fact, the BS6 norms align with the Euro6 a little different, though but not much.
So it becomes easy for Husqvarna to introduce in Europe.
- It will arrive with LED headlights, taillights as well as blinkers.
- Unlike the elder Svartpilen 250 do we see a trellis frame is still a question?
- The Duke 125 comes with the adjustable mono-shock at the rear, and on the opposite end, we see 43 mm WP upside-down fork. The same applies to Svartpilen 125.
- When it comes to the brakes, we see 230 mm disc at the back, and 320 mm disc on the brake’s front and they come from Bybre. A Bosch ABS which can be deactivated.
- To keep the minimalistic look further, the Svartplen 125 will have the round digital dash.
- Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tires to come in 17 inches spoke wheels. While the elder Svartplien 250 has the cast wheels.
The Husqvarna Svartpilen 125cc comes with a 5000 Euros price tag. It is unclear if Husqvarna plans to introduce it in India first. But with growing lower displacement sells they should.
