Good news for scrambler motorcycle fans! It seems that Husqvarna is working on a new Svartpilen 890 motorcycle. There are reports of testing, as well as some leaked images of the titular motorcycle. Based on the pictures, some have concluded that the Svartpilen 890 will feature an 894cc parallel-twin engine in its frame. If that ends up to be true, we can expect a striking improvement over the Svartpilen 701 motorcycle!
Reports say that the new 890 motorcycles will utilize the same engine as the 890 Duke R, which means 119 horsepower and 73 lb-ft of torque. There is a high probability that Husqvarna may opt to retune the engine a bit. Nevertheless, the numbers indicate that this bike will be a true powerhouse!
Even though the new bike will use a similar body and swingarm, the rest will look fundamentally different from the Duke R. We can say that the style of the bike resembles the 701 Svartpilen, with some additions such as headlight mask and gas tank. Also, as KTM owns WP and Husqvarna, the motorcycle will utilize suspension from WP.
There is still no official announcement of this motorcycle from Husqvarna. Based on the leak, it is certain that this bike is quite far in the development cycle. We will keep you updated when we learn more about this powerhouse of a scrambler!
