Husqvarna has announced its 2022 street lineup, which includes four models: the Svartpilen 401 scrambler, the Vitpilen 401 modern café racer, the 701 Supermoto, and the Norden 901 adventure bike.
2022 Husqvarna Svartpilen 401
With its spoked wheels and knobby Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tires, the Svartpilen 401 – which means “black arrow” in Swedish – is a light, compact scrambler that is equally at home on city streets and desolate backroads. Its tractable 373cc single-cylinder engine makes 43 horsepower and 27 lb-ft of torque at the crank and is equipped with throttle-by-wire. The 6-speed transmission is mated to a slip/assist clutch and is equipped with Easy Shift, which allows for clutchless gear changes. The engine is held in place by a chromoly steel trellis frame, and WP Apex suspension will handle whatever you throw at it. ByBre brakes and Bosch ABS offer powerful, controlled stopping. Fuel capacity is 2.5 gallons and dry weight is 335 pounds.
The 2022 Husqvarna Svartpilen 401 comes in black and features new graphics. MSRP is $5,399.
2022 Husqvarna Vitpilen 401
The Vitpilen 401 (“white arrow”) is a modern take on the café racer. Built on the same platform as the Svartpilen 401, it is powered by a 373cc Single carried in a chromoly steel trellis frame, and it’s equipped with Easy Shift, WP Apex suspension, ByBre brakes, Bosch ABS, and LED headlight and taillight.
The 2022 Husqvarna Vitpilen 401 has matte white bodywork with new graphics. MSRP is $5,399.
2022 Husqvarna 701 Supermoto
If strafing apexes is your idea of fun, then look no further than the light, powerful 701 Supermoto. Its frisky 693cc single-cylinder engine makes 74 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 54 lb-ft of torque at 6,500 rpm, and the whole package weighs a svelte 324 pounds dry. A chromoly steel trellis frame is strong and light. High-performance features include an ATPC slipper clutch, WP Apex suspension, Brembo brakes with two-channel, switchable Bosch 9.1 MP ABS (including cornering ABS and Supermoto mode), lean-angle-sensitive traction control, and two ride modes. It rolls on Giant tubeless spoked 17-inch wheels shod with Continental ContiAttack Supermoto tires.
Handguards, a high fender, and white bodywork with black/yellow Husky graphics mean business. The 2022 Husqvarna 701 Supermoto has an MSRP of $12,499.
2022 Husqvarna Norden 901
Husqvarna entered the highly competitive adventure bike market this year with the Norden 901, which is powered by an 889cc parallel-Twin that makes 105 horsepower and 73.8 lb-ft of torque at the crank. It’s fully equipped with throttle-by-wire, ride modes, comprehensive electronics, fully adjustable WP Apex suspension, J.Juan brakes, 21-inch front/18-inch rear spoked tubeless wheels shod with Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tires, and more.
