URBAN EXPLORER, The SVARTPILEN 401 makes no excuses about its rugged appeal. It is by definition a motorcycle at home on the fringes of a metropolitan playground, where the blacktop is less than perfect. Making use of its lightweight and punchy engine to navigate side streets, it is a master of all it surveys.
FILLING THE VOID, The burbling-pop of the quickshifter encourages you to wind on a few more revs for the next up-shift. Riding the torque curve, confidently firing out of corners. This is a riding experience defined by its easy-going rawness. But when the empty road calls for it - when you need to wrestle the bars and scrub the tyres, the SVARTPILEN 701 will happily oblige.
LIGHT-FOOTED, The VITPILEN 401 is an unassuming hero of the sub-500 cc world. Its surefootedness, light weight and immersive riding position guarantee helmet-hidden smiles. You don't ride it as much as guide it with feather-light inputs. It reacts to the smallest response, moves at the lightest touch and feeds back every road texture through low-slung bars. It's an all-encompassing and sensory ride which resonates with new and experienced riders alike.
