Husqvarna Svartpilen 901 teased ahead of launch.

Husqvarna Motorcycles has unveiled another teaser for the upcoming Svartpilen 901, anticipating its global debut in Europe. Set to be based on the KTM 890 Duke platform, the scrambler is scheduled for launch in Europe on March 5, 2024.

The teaser video, shared on Husqvarna's official Instagram handle, provides a sneak peek into the Svartpilen 901's design. Despite the camouflage in the teaser, distinctive features like the round LED headlamp, streamlined tail section, and the upward-sloping exhaust are evident. The motorcycle will ride on five-spoke alloy wheels and feature dual-purpose tires.

Powering the Svartpilen 901 is an 889cc parallel-twin motor, shared with the Husqvarna Norden 901 and the KTM 890 Duke R. Generating 121bhp at 9,250rpm and 99Nm at 7,750rpm (as seen in the 890 Duke R), this engine will be coupled with a six-speed gearbox, along with a standard assist and slipper clutch.

Equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels and dual-purpose rubber, the Svartpilen 901 is designed for versatile riding experiences, including off-road adventures. In the global market, it will compete with models such as the Yamaha XSR 900, Kawasaki Z900RS, Ducati Scrambler, and the KTM 890 Duke R.
