2024 Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 spotted testing under heavy camouflage
2024 Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 has been spotted testing in Pune by MotorBeamer Babaji Jadhav. The camouflaged test mule tries to hide the changes but what’s clearly visible here is the updated new engine.
The Husqvarna Vitpilen 250 will get a mid-cycle refresh soon, which is likely to launch in early 2024. The updated motorcycle will be powered by the same engine as the KTM Duke 250. The new Duke 250 gets a 249cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine producing 31 PS at 9250 RPM and 25 Nm at 7250 RPM. Notice the exhaust unit on the Husqvarna prototype, it looks the same as the one see on Duke 250.
While the engine output on the Husqvarna is expected to be the same, they might give it a slightly different tuning to suit the character of the motorcycle. The updated powertrain gets a ride-by-wire tech, redesigned cylinder head and larger airbox. It is mated to a 6-speed gearbox that gets quick-shifter as standard.
It also gets a side-mounted monoshock, which means the suspension has been tweaked and there are slight changes in the chassis as well. The fuel tank also gets some changes, you can expect them to increase the capacity from 11-litres to 13-litres.
Visually, the new Husqvarna will get an updated headlight cover, new alloy wheels and a new tail section which has been tweaked to position the number plate on the tail instead of the mudguard like the current model on sale. We can expect some new colours on offer as well.
The all-digital cluster is expected to be updated as well having a larger screen with the latest UI and smartphone connectivity with turn-by-turn navigation along with USB-C port for charging. The new bike is likely to get a price hike with all these changes.
