"The Husqvarna Svartpilen and Vitpilen are bespoke Swedish motorcycles which are painstakingly crafted to deliver high performance in a very aesthetic design. This is the result of the Swedish ethos of maintaining a fine balance between dynamic performance & unique Scandinavian design," Bajaj said in a statement.
The 250 cc machines feature a fuel injected, liquid cooled, single-cylinder 4-stroke engine
