Vit Pilen And Svart Pilen By Kiska For Husqvarna
Created for beloved Husqvarna by Kiska, the Austrian company that gave birth to the KTM X-Bow, these two motorbikes, named Vit Pilen (White Arrow) and Svart Pilen (Black Arrow), were actually inspired by the Silver Pilen, one of the lightest and fastest bikes of the ’50s.
The Vit Pilen is more road-focused, embracing the stripped-down cafe racer vibe, adorning it with a clean, ovoid exhaust, bronze and yellow detailing, a swept-back seat, and semi-slick tires.
The Svart Pilen adds knobby, street-legal rubber, an incredibly trick high-mounted exhaust, dirt bars, skid plates, and a pair of racks – one on the tank and another on the tail – to strap down some gear before tackling the trails.
But both concepts weigh in at 297 pounds and use an exposed trellis frame, combined with upside-down TP forks, and 17-inch wheels, are based on the compact KTM, and that includes the 43-hp, 373cc single cylinder engine.
