Svartpilen 801

Husqvarna has gone large with its scrambler-style Svartpilen road bike, adding a new 801 model that sports a 799cc parallel twin engine. The Svartpilen 801 uses a tubular steel frame to contain the 105hp motor, resulting in an overall weight of just 181kg. WP Apex suspension is used front and rear, as are J.Juan brakes with Bosch cornering ABS. Electronics haven’t been overlooked, obviously, so as well as traction control, ABS and a trio of riding modes there is an optional Dynamic Pack which adds engine brake control and adjustable anti-wheelie modes. Up front there is a 5in TFT screen which can provide navigation and phone connectivity for calls and music when teamed up with the brand’s app. The Svartpilen 801 only comes in a Henry Ford-approved black, for an SRP of £10,500.
