Two years ago, Husqvarna presented two concept at EICMA, the scrambler-styled Svartpilen 401 and the Vitpilen 401 cafe racer, both based off of the KTM 390 Duke platform. Last year in Milan, Husqvarna presented a larger Vitpilen 701 concept based off the 690 Duke. It’s no surprise then that Husqvarna would choose EICMA once again to present the final production model.

A video released by Husqvarna confirms the Vitpilen (Swedish for “White Arrow”) will debut next week in Milan:

The engine, fork, front brake and frame visible in the clearest shot resemble those of the Vitpilen 401 concept, but we can’t rule out the possibility of other displacements.

What little we can glimpse of the production model looks fairly similar to the Vitpilen 401 concept.

Also a mystery is whether the Vitpilen’s sibling, the Svartpilen (Black Arrow) will also enter production.

    I want this in my garage. I’d rather have a vitpilen 701 than a Ducati scrambler, even if the price is higher.
