Husqvarna Motorcycles is proud to present its brand new, powerful naked bike, the Svartpilen 801. The Svartpilen 801 is the newest and highest-displacement naked motorcycle in the brand's range, combining performance, agility and modern, scrambler-inspired design.
Designed to enhance the on-road riding experience and get away from it all, this exceptional motorcycle sets a new standard for medium-duty road models.

The Svartpilen 801 weighs only 181 kg and consists of a strong and lightweight chrome-molybdenum tubular steel frame that offers a balance of flexibility and rigidity. At its heart is a powerful in-line 2-cylinder DOHC engine with 799 cc. The engine weighs 52 kg dry and offers a maximum power of 105 hp. Its reliability and efficiency are guaranteed by innovative technologies that extend service intervals to 15,000 km and ensure extremely low fuel consumption.

The combination of lightweight engine and frame gives the Svartpilen 801 a perfectly balanced power-to-weight ratio, resulting in a consistently agile and exciting ride. The Power Assist Slipper Clutch (PASC) maximizes traction during hard acceleration and prevents instability during hard braking, while Easy Shift ensures seamless gear changes. The adjustable WP APEX suspension offers 140 mm of travel at the fork and 150 mm of travel at the shock for confident comfort as well as good handling in the city and on the road. The Pirelli MT60 RS tires, mounted on 17-inch rims, offer a high level of grip and feedback.

The unmistakable look of the Svartpilen 801 is created by high-quality details such as the LED lights and aluminum handlebars, making for a unique and eye-catching street motorcycle. The sleek, ergonomic bodywork in dark tones skilfully encloses the engine and frame. The two-piece seat offers a high level of comfort and unrestricted freedom of movement.

State-of-the-art electronic aids improve the handling of the Svartpilen 801, while the optional Dynamic Pack takes the driving experience on the road to an even higher level. In addition to adjustable motorcycle traction control (MTC) and ABS, Street, Rain and Sport riding modes are preset as standard. The Dynamic Pack uses Engine Drag Torque Control (MSR) for controlled deceleration, and the Anti-Wheelie mode limits the maximum wheelie angle for added safety.

The best-in-class technology package ensures ease of use and maximum performance for every rider. The J.Juan braking system offers exceptional braking performance thanks to Bosch corner-sensitive ABS. For advanced riders, there is an ABS mode Supermoto that allows for a better braking feel and a closer connection with the road.

Versatility and safety are enhanced by first-class electronic equipment such as a 5-inch TFT instrument cluster and a connectivity unit as standard. Pairing the device with the Ride Husqvarna Motorcycles app allows you to activate clear turn-by-turn navigation, as well as control phone calls and personal music selection. A warning system is also integrated into the controls on the handlebars and the immobilizer offers anti-theft protection.
