Husqvarna Svartpilen 401 (2018 onwards)
The Husqvarna Svartpilen 401 is an A2-friendly motorcycle with an interesting design and a lot of character. It features elements of both a classic bike and a modern street bike. The motorcycle looks extremely cool and it also offers very good performance for such a small bike.
It shares the same engine with the KTM 390 Duke, which is one of the best single-cylinder street bikes out there. The Husqvarna Svartpilen 401 is slightly more expensive than its KTM sibling, but there is almost no difference between these bikes.

Not only does it look super-good and handles really well, but it is also newbie-friendly and A2 legal. The only downside of this motorcycle is its higher price tag.
