After teasing us with prototypes at EICMA last year, Husqvarna has finally unveiled the production version of its Vitpilen 401. The Vitpilen is the first of the company's "Real Street" models, and marks an important step in the company's goal of fulfilling its vision of street motorcycling.

The Vitplilen features a 375cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine housed in a steel-tube frame, with minimalist bodywork. The engine produces 44 horsepower and is fitted with a slipper clutch. Bosch 9.11MB ABS two-channel ABS is standard equipment, and the bike rides on WP suspension and Metzeler M5 tires.

To find out more about the Vitpilen 401, we packed the gallery below full of information. Take it from us — you wont be the only the one drooling over this!

The lightweight steel-trellis frame is a proven design, contributing to the easy and agile ride of the ‘Real Street’ range. Mass is grouped close to the centre of gravity to maximise manoeuvrability and precision. Made from high strength chromium molybdenum steel using hydro formed tubes and robot welding, designed with specific flex characteristics, the frame works in conjunction with the WP suspension to offer a comfortable and confident feel and combined with a tight turning circle for ease of use in urban environments.Courtesy of Husqvarna

The ‘Real Street’ range has a 375 cc, 44 hp (32kW), single-cylinder twin overhead camshaft engine that only weighs 36 kg, thanks to its compact modern design. The latest materials and production technologies deliver the bike's ample torque and useful acceleration at all engine speeds, but also give it good manners in everyday use, with outstanding fuel economy. The engine delivers 37Nm of torque from low down in the RPM range, perfect for urban riding.Courtesy of Husqvarna

Additionally, by implementing a counter balancer shaft, vibration is kept to a minimum delivering a smooth and comfortable ride. By using electronic fuel injection and a 46mm throttle body operated by a ride-by-wire system, the engine delivers a sharp but refined and very controllable power delivery.Courtesy of Husqvarna

The VITPILEN 401 and SVARTPILEN 401 are fitted with a slipper clutch. The slipper clutch works by allowing the clutch to slip under heavy braking when torque levels get too high from downshifts. This prevents the rear wheel from hopping or sliding and a more controlled deceleration.Courtesy of Husqvarna

The ‘Real Street’ range is equipped with quality hydraulic brakes. The 320 mm front disc provides ample surface area for the opposed, four-piston callipers, while the 230 mm rear disc, provides the surface area for a single piston, floating calliper to clamp on to. Additionally, a state-of-the-art Bosch 2-channel ABS system is fitted.Courtesy of Husqvarna

The exhaust on the ‘Real Street’ range has been specifically designed to work well with the 375 cc engine and remain an aesthetically pleasing element that compliments the characters of the VITPILEN 401 and SVARTPILEN 401. Made from a combination of steel and aluminium, the exhaust system is integral for ensuring EURO IV regulations are met. Comprising of two parts, the pre-silencer is made from steel while the final silencer is made from aluminium. The final silencer is finished off with a raw aluminium look and the iconic Husqvarna logo.Courtesy of Husqvarna

The seats are different on the VITPILEN 401 and the SVARTPILEN 401. High quality foam forms the base of both seats, but a long single piece, two-seater features on the VITPILEN 401, whereas the SVARTPILEN 401 features two single seats with different fabric from the VITPILEN 401. There will be options to remove the rear seat and fit a technical accessory on the SVARTPILEN 401.Courtesy of Husqvarna

The ‘Real Street’ range features a modern full LED headlight with a distinctive circular running light and two reflectors for high/low beam. Besides the added safety of the bright LEDs and saving energy, the headlight is a design feature that contributes to the unique style represented by the VITPILEN and SVARTPILEN 401 models. The taillight is also full red LED and through the design, seems to hover above the rear wheel. The SVARTPILEN 401 gets a protective cage structure on the front headlight.Courtesy of Husqvarna
