Model Description

The 2024 Svartpilen 801 is the latest expansion of our naked motorcycle line-up. It combines exceptional versatility, performance, and style for the streets. Its minimalist, scrambler-inspired design features a new compact and powerful parallel-twin engine, perfectly balanced tubular frame, and refined ergonomics for an engaging, intuitive ride. Complete with adjustable WP suspension, state-of-the art electronic aids, and finished with sharp lines and dark colours, the Svartpilen 801 allows each rider to set their own tone for urban riding.


The Svartpilen 801 achieves its unique, minimalistic style through its scrambler-inspired design. Slim ergonomic bodywork is tightly wrapped around the engine and frame, connecting rider and machine for total control and movement. Its striking colours, LED light ring, tank cover, and skid plate combine to create a distinctive look.


The Svartpilen 801 delivers advanced agility and stability through its compact tubular steel frame, with its geometry developed for a new breed of street motorcycle. Strong and light hydro-formed components are laser cut and robot welded to ensure precision and durability while a calculated balance of flex and rigidity offers outstanding feedback.


Integrated front and rear LED lights and turn signals add to the progressive and minimalist design of the Svartpilen 801. Positioned neatly around the headlight, the unique LED ring offers clear visibility in all conditions to make riding safer for the rider and other road users. 

A lightweight tapered aluminium handlebar, WP steering damper, and forged aluminium triple clamps allow for maximum control and comfort with a steel crossbar hinting at the brand’s offroad heritage.


The contoured 14-litre fuel tank is housed inside a unique cover with its shape allowing for both a lower and straighter seat that offers unrestricted movement while riding. A premium aluminium filler cap is finished with a machined Husqvarna Motorcycles logo to complete the look. 


The seat is tapered from the front for easy access and movement while riding. Made from high-quality materials and carefully engineered foam, the seat offers assured comfort and durability with padded, heat-stamped ribs improving traction in wet weather.


The Svartpilen 801 is powered by a 799 cc, parallel-twin engine. State-of-the-art and extremely light, this compact engine offers reliability, durability, and efficiency thanks to a wide range of technical innovations that combine to deliver an outstanding ride.


Easy Shift is integrated as a standard feature to ensure all upward gear changes are as smooth as possible. Once the EMS registers movement on the gear lever, it momentarily limits power, ensuring seamless upshifts. For a simplified riding experience, the clutch is not needed when changing gear on the Svartpilen 801. 


The Svartpilen 801 is equipped with multiple electronic rider aids to improve its usability. Pre-set ride modes offer three different settings – Street, Sport, and Rain. Street is engaged as standard while Sport sharpens the throttle response, giving riders the ability to break traction and steer with the rear wheel. Rain can be activated in adverse weather conditions for a less aggressive throttle response and reduced power output. For the individual setup of throttle response, traction control, and advanced rider settings, a Dynamic mode is available.


The Svartpilen 801 features an anti-wheelie mode offering five separate levels of control, from Very Low to Very High, which allow for a specific degree of wheelie. Experienced riders can also switch the mode off completely for complete control of the motorcycle.


By quickly processing lean angle data from three integrated sensors, Motorcycle Traction Control (MTC) works with both the Street and Rain ride modes. This helps the Svartpilen 801 maintain traction through every corner and in all conditions. Alternatively, MTC can be switched off by advanced riders who wish to drift around corners and enjoy a much livelier riding experience.


Engine braking is controlled by Motor Slip Regulation (MSR) which balances throttle application in the event of high engine drag torque caused by down shifting or abrupt closing of the throttle. The MSR ensures smooth deceleration to afford extra safety, especially in low grip situations, to reassure beginners and experienced riders alike.


Carefully designed ergonomics enhance the riding experience. A lower centre of gravity and reduced seat height result in a more comfortable and confidence-inspiring riding position while adjustable handlebars, slim bodywork, and aluminium footrests offer a stylish and customisable set-up.


The WP suspension on the Svartpilen 801 delivers advanced performance for urban riding and day-long adventures. The 43 mm WP APEX open cartridge front forks offer 140 mm of travel with easily adjustable compression and rebound damping. The shock offers 150 mm of travel as well as rebound adjustability, and it is directly linked to the diecast aluminium swingarm to offer flex, stability, and easy maintenance.


Exceptional stopping power comes from a state-of-the-art, J.Juan brake system, with two 300 mm floating front discs and a 240 mm rear disc. A cornering-sensitive Bosch ABS as standard provides outstanding safety in all conditions and prevents lock-ups under hard braking while a Supermoto mode disengages ABS on the rear wheel for when riding on gravel. Black anodised calipers with a laser-etched Husqvarna Motorcycles logo provide a premium finish.


Lightweight 17″, 5-spoke cast alloy wheels are a design standout of the Svartpilen 801, with a discreetly embedded Husqvarna Motorcycles logo. Strong and stable with clean lines, the wheels are fitted with Pirelli MT60 RS tyres, offering outstanding grip and durability on all road surfaces.


A 6-speed sequential gearbox offers quick and precise gear changes. The Easy Shift sensor registers movement on the gear lever to momentarily limit power for smooth upshifts. Glass bead-blasted teeth on the 4th, 5th and 6th gears provide exceptional reliability.


A 5″ TFT dashboard with a bonded glass screen shows vital information to riders. The travelling speed, fuel level, and the selected gear are all clearly displayed and visible at a glance. It is controlled by the backlight switch cubes on the left side of the handlebar.


With the Connectivity Unit fitted as standard, the Svartpilen 801 provides riders with various features to enhance their riding experience. With a smartphone connected via Bluetooth, music can be played and controlled, and calls can be made or received. The RemoteControl Mode (RCM) enables the rider to control the Ride Husqvarna Motorcycles app with buttons on the handlebar for added safety and simplicity.


Once downloaded onto a smartphone before riding, the Ride Husqvarna Motorcycles app offers connectivity and unlimited exploration. When paired with the Svartpilen 801, Turn-by-Turn navigation on your device can be displayed on the TFT dashboard allowing riders to easily follow directions and take the fastest route between A and B.


The state-of-the-art parallel-twin engine offers exceptional performance, reliability, and serviceability. Thanks to the advanced engineering techniques used during the assembly of each engine, the oil, oil filter, and air filter only need to be replaced every 15,000 kilometres (9,320 miles) after an initial oil change at 1,000 kilometres (621 miles).

The Svartpilen 801 has an immobiliser fitted as standard to provide anti-theft protection.
