New Husqvarna Vitpilen 901 Caught in Tests

New images of a test model show a sporty naked bike based on KTM’s Duke 890, and Husqvarna is getting ready to reintroduce a high-capacity version of the Vitpilen.

For riders with an A2 license, the only available option is the Vitpilen 401. A 701 model was also introduced in 2018, but it has since been discontinued. With matte black and white finishes, this new model suggests it is in the final stages of development.

The 889 cc twin-cylinder engine in this model, for instance, is taken from the Norden 901 adventure range, while the frame is the same as what we find on the Duke. This model differs from the others most in terms of its engine. This engine already has a 115-hp version that can be found on the Duke.

Although the frame and engine have been modified, the styling is identical to that of Husqvarna’s 701 model, and the exhaust system shares a similar line with the Duke. The front’s rounded headlight and the back’s thinner LED taillight harken back to the previous, naked model.

A TFT color panel will be present, as well as LED indicator lights. Last but not least, the test vehicle seems to be equipped with Michelin Power 5 sports road tires and adjustable WP Apex suspension.

Soon, Husqvarna should provide additional information about the new high-cylinder model.
