View all 7 Photos

Though the hotly anticipated motorbike will not be on the market until 2017, the concept bike version of the Husqvarna 401 Svartpilen, or “Black Arrow,” is here for your viewing pleasure. Updating Husqvarna’s cult favorite post-war design, the European scrambler is lightweight with a single-cylinder engine and minimal construction. The fresh take boasts an ergonomic upright position, knobby tires, LED headlights, multiple mounting racks, rising exhaust, trellis frames, and WP suspension components. Still a retro streetbike through and through, this motorcycle is already turning heads.
