The Husqvarna 401 Svartpilen And Vitpilen Concepts Will Be Made - in 2017

Sigh.

Remember these concepts from the Milan show in November last year? Absolutely gorgeous, small capacity, simple bikes based on the KTM 390 platform.

And according to Visordown, they are going to be made, but not available until 2017 :(

Edit - And another article, this one blaming the bean counters for the delay.

Damn. I really liked those too. Maybe by 2017 I'll have room for a "fun only" bike that doesn't have to handle multiple other duties too!
Still, nice to see a company take a prototype people actually liked and then decide to make it. A lot can happen between now and then though. When they see their new 2015 models gain popularity these might get but on the back burner.
