[] - 2019 Husqvarna Svartpilen 701 Certified by CARB

We saw it at EICMA in concept form but we can now confirm the Husqvarna Svartpilen 701 is heading for production as a 2019 model.

The proof comes from the California Air Resources Board which has issued an executive order certifying the Svartpilen 701 for 2019. The “Black Arrow” was certified along with is “White Arrow” sibling, the Vitplien 701 which also debuted at EICMA as a 2018 production model. The executive order lists the same emissions levels as the 2018 Vitpilen 701, suggesting the KTM Duke-based 693cc Single will return unchanged on the Svartpilen.

Judging from Husqvarna’s other models, we expect the Svartpilen 701 production model will look fairly close to its concept, naturally with the addition of street-legal necessities. The license plate holder, turn signals and instrumentation will likely be similar to those found on the Vitpilen 701. As we saw with the smaller 401 models, the Svartpilen 701 will have more of a scrambler or flat tracker style than its sibling. We can expect an 18-inch front wheel with a 17-inch wheel at the rear, though the concept was equipped with cast wheels and we don’t expect the production model to swap those for wire spoke wheels.

We expect the 2019 Husvarna Svartpilen 701 production model will be formally introduced at one of this fall’s big European shows, either at Intermot in early October or a month later at EICMA. Check back here on for the latest information as it becomes available.
