Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 and Svartpilen 250 is now available in Nepal.The Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 Price in Nepal is set at NPR. 5,69,900.
Hansraj Hulaschand & Co. Pvt. Ltd., the official distributor of KTM and Bajaj Bikes in Nepal is also set to showcase the all-new breed of a motorcycle called Husqvarna or ‘Husky’ in short.
The Vitpilen 250 is one of the two Husqvarna motorcycles that was recently launched in Nepal. Before getting into the nitty-gritty details of the new Vitpilen 250, let’s see what Husqvarna company is all about.
Founded in 1689, Husqvarna only started manufacturing motorcycles in 1903. The company designs, engineers, and manufactures motorcycles, motocross, enduro, and even the supermoto. The Swedish-origin company was acquired by KTM in 2013. Today, the distribution of Husqvarna motorcycles are handled by KTM itself.
Fun fact: The logo of Husqvarna depicts a gun sight viewed from the end of the barrel. Isn’t that cool?
Okay, now that you have caught up to the speed, let’s look at the specs and details of the new 2020 Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 in Nepal.
Husqvarna Vitpilen 250
Design and Features
Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 is designed with the concept of the Husqvarna 701 Supermoto model in a minimalistic way.
Vitpilen 250 is what we refer to as a café racer. The paint scheme is enticing and with the matte finish, the motorcycle looks classic. Unlike the Svartpilen 250, this bike gets clip-on handlebars.
The seat is a single-peace premium seat with road tires. The riding posture is aggressive and you have to lean a little forward as compared to the Svartpilen 250.
Engine and Performance
Powering the Vitpilen 250 is a 248.8cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled BS6-compliant FI engine. It can generate a max power of 30PS at 9,000rpm and a max torque of 24Nm at 7,500rpm. The engine is complemented by the 6-speed manual transmission.
Similar to the Husqvarna Svartpilen, you get a 9.5-litre fuel capacity. Which I think is pretty low. But let’s make it clear, this bike is built for power and performance rather than commuting.
Salient features of Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 in Nepal:
- Dual-Channel ABS
- Steel Trellis Frame

Brakes and Tires
