Unlike their Austrian siblings, the Husqvarna Svartpilen and Vitpilen lack an angular appearance. Instead, we get a more understated design with basic body panels. Vitpilen and Svartpilen have very comparable appearances.

There are, yet, subtle differences between the two. The Svartpilen, for example, has a straight and tall handlebar. The Vitpilen, so, has a clip-on handlebar that is lower. The Svartpilen also comes with Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tyres for modest off-roading.

Husqvarna has updated the design of the two street motorcycles for 2022. It has given the Svartpilen 125 and 401 a more stealthy appearance. The bike comes with more blacked-out bodywork, as its moniker, The Black Arrow, suggests.
