Husqvarna Vitpilen 401 (2018 onwards)

The Husqvarna Vitpilen 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 Vitpilen 401 is slightly more expensive than its KTM sibling, but there is almost no difference between these bikes.

Without a doubt, Husqvarna succeeded in in their first attempt to create a stylish small-sized street bike and the Vitpilen 401 has a lot of features to offer. 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.
