Adventure Cycle Philippines (ACPI) has announced that the first batch of locally produced Husqvarna motorcycles will be available by the end of this year. Dino Santos, president and COO of ACPI, said four Husqvarna models—the Svartpilen 401 and 201, and the Vitpilen 401 and 201—will be produced at the KTM Asia Motorcycle Manufacturing plant in Laguna.
Categorized as a neo-retro bike, the Vitpilen 401 is a sub-400cc mid-size motorbike designed for urban use. The Svartpilen 401 , meanwhile, is popular in Europe and other parts of the globe because of its surefootedness and lightweight characteristics. It also appeals to younger riders because of its rugged looks.
These two Huskies share the same compact 373cc single-cylinder engine as the KTM 390 Duke, which is also being produced locally by ACPI. The platform-sharing between Husqvarna and KTM does not end there. ACPI will also make available the Vitpilen 201 and Svartpilen 201, both powered by the 199.5cc, single-cylinder, four-stroke mill found in the KTM 200 Duke.
