The unveiling of the 250cc twins from the brand though came as a surprise, as many were expecting the higher capacity 401s to make their debut in the country. However, Autocar India has now confirmed that the Husqvarna 401s will make their way to the Indian market at a later stage.

Thoughts On The Husqvarna 401 Motorcycle Offerings

The Husqvarna 401s have been among the much-awaited motorcycle offerings from the brand in the Indian market. However, being a premium brand, the 401s would have become a costly offering. The launch of smaller capacity motorcycles will help set up the brand in the Indian market, before introducing larger capacity offerings.
