Husqvarna Announces New Svartpilen 801

As we reported a couple of weeks ago, Husqvarna has now officially announced the latest iteration of the Svartpilen street scrambler, upping the number from 701 to 801.

As predicted, the 799cc, parallel twin, 105 horsepower, 87Nm engine has exactly the same tune as found in the KTM 790 Duke which won’t take a genius to decipher, as both brands are a part of the Pierer Mobility Group. What the Svartpilen 801 has that the KTM doesn’t, however, is the distinctive style that has been a part of the Svartpilen story since the beginning.

All the bells and whistles are present: Power Assist Slipper Clutch, quick shifter, adjustable WP Apex suspension front and rear, offering 140mm of fork travel and 150mm of rear shock travel, and Pirelli MT60 RS tyres on 17-inch rims front and back. Brakes are by J.Juan, a Brembo subsidiary. All-in weight is 181kg and service intervals are 15,000km.

On the electronics front, there are three rider modes – Street, Rain and Sport, traction control and corner-sensitive ABS, while the optional Dynamic Pack adds Motor Slip Regulation for controlled deceleration and an anti-wheelie mode. All the usual connectivity is available via the TFT dash.

Accompanying the announcement of the new model, came a second release detailing a brand new range of Husqvarna apparel, including streetwear, off-road, casual lifestyle, team wear and something called Rockstar Casual Collection.
