Swedish motorcycle manufacturer Husqvarna is all set to enter India in 2017 and will be setting up shop in India with the help of Bajaj.
Husqvarna will use Bajaj's manufacturing facility in Chakan near Pune to manufacture its small capacity motorcycles.
The small capacity Husqvarnas will then be sold in India through Bajaj's pro-biking showrooms which also play host to KTM and Kawasaki.
Husqvarna, which is owned by KTM will manufacture the Vitpilen (White Arrow) 401 and Svartpilen (Black Arrow) 401 scrambler at Chakan.
The two all-new Husqvarna motorcycles were unveiled at the 2016 EICMA Motorcycle show in Milan on November 9.
Powering both the Vitpilen and Svartpilen 401 is the same engine found on the all-new 2017 KTM Duke 390 which was unveiled at EICMA as well.
The 373cc single cylinder engine that cranks out 43.3bhp @ 9,000rpm and 37Nm of torque @7,000rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox which is helped along by a slipper clutch.
Both Husqvarna motorcycles also use the same suspension setup from the KTM with a steel Trellis frame along with 43mm WP front forks and monoshock at the rear.
Both Huskies both use the same braking setup with a 320mm disc brake with 4-piston Bybre brake calipers up front which is helped along by a 230mm disc in the rear which makes use of a single piston Bybre caliper.
The first batch of the new Husqvarnas will be exported out from Chakan to international markets where the Husqvarna name is better known.
Once the debut batch rolls out, the Swedish motorcycle manufacturer is expected to kick off its innings in India sometime in the first half of 2017.
