2021 Husqvarna Svartpilen 125 breaks cover
The Husqvarna Svartpilen 125 has been officially revealed by the Swedish motorcycle making brand. The bike will now sit as the new entry-level Husqvarna in the 125 cc range. As seen in the case of the bigger Husqvarna bikes, the new Svartpilen 125 comes based on the corresponding KTM model, which in this case is the 125 Duke.
The new Svartpilen 125 will also be produced at Bajaj Auto's Chakan plant. The bike will then be exported to the markets overseas including Europe.

The suspension duties on the bike are performed by 43 mm WP Apex forks up front, and a preload-adjustable WP Apex shock at the rear, both with 142 mm travel.
