    Here in Vancouver the Husky dealer is selling new bikes (2018 model year) for $2,000 less than MSRP. I think that speaks volumes about what the market thinks of the Svartpilen 401…not much.

    2020 is 60 days away, its called making room for next year. read the sales #’s, dipshit


    I know in October in the USA Husqvarna was offering $1750 as “customer cash” towards the purchase of a Svart or Vit 401.  I was able to pick up my 2019 Svartpilen 401 for $5300 (USD) out the door (my local tax is 7% which was included in that total).


    I just go into a 2019 Svartpilen at $3999 (+tax and fees) from a dealer in Maryland. Customer cash, cold weather and, new bikes shown at EICMA definitely brought the price down.


    I can’t believe the price difference between the 2019 SP701 and the 2020 SP701. Gear4 Motorcycles here in the UK are selling the 2019 SP701 for £5999, and the 2020 bike for £9349. Is the new bike really worth £3350 more? They are selling the 2019 VP401 for £3699, so for an extra £349 you could buy a 2019 SP701 AND a VP401 for the price of the 2020 SP701! Almost makes me want to grab a 2019 SP701 just for the savings, but I’ve already got an MT-07 which is just too similar (700cc class naked bike).

    i think the 2020 Vitpilen 401 and 701 will be made in India;

    that might explain the price drop…

    needless to say, I quickly picked up a new 2019 (which is still made in Austria, I think).
