Husqvarna has hiked the prices of its Vitpilen 250 and Svartpilen 250. The two motorcycles have received a price hike for the first time since their launch in February. The Vitpilen 250 and Svartpilen 250 are now priced at Rs 1,84,768 (ex-showroom Delhi), a hike of Rs 4,768. Husqvarna’s sister company, KTM too has hiked the prices of its entire BS6 range. Here are the new prices:
|Models||Old pricing (ex-showroom Delhi)||New Pricing (ex-showroom Delhi)||Differences|
|Husqvarna Vitpilen 250||Rs 1,80,032||Rs 1,84,768||Rs 4,736|
|Husqvarna Svartpilen 250||Rs 1,80,032||Rs 1,84,768||Rs 4,736|
Even with the price hike, the Husqvarna twins offer exceptional value for money, especially when compared to the KTM 250 Duke BS6, which is priced above Rs 2 lakh (ex-showroom). They get the same features, underpinnings, and even the 250cc powertrain as the Duke. The Vitpilen is styled as a cafe racer while the Svartpilen is designed as a scrambler. Both get LED headlamps, LED tail lamps, and LED turn indicators along with a digital instrument console.
Power comes from a BS6-compliant 248.8cc liquid-cooled motor that delivers 30PS and 24Nm. Underpinnings include a trellis frame, WP upside-down forks, WP monoshock, and Brembo radially mounted disc brakes on both ends with dual-channel ABS. While the Vitpilen 250 gets MRF Revz C1 tyres, the Svartpilen 250 comes with dual-purpose MRF Revz D tyres.
The Vitpilen 250 and Svartpilen 250 are good options if you are looking for something different and niche to liven up your commute.
