Thoughts About The Husqvarna Svartpilen 200 launching Next Year

Very smart move by Husqvarna, but they have Bajaj and KTM to thank for Indian market related strategies. Any manufacturer wanting to enter the two-wheeler market in India needs to target the mass segments first. That is exactly what Husqvarna is doing. We expect all three models to do very well in the country.
