    Went to dealer yesterday.Was only looking for a Svartpilen but they had a Vitpilen there- it looks WAY better IMHO but those bars were a bit of a (wrist) pain for my old lanky body. The Svartpilen’s seemed too high, if anything, and I’d swap them for slightly lower ones ( probs Renthal RC High bend- from my dirtbike days). I know looks are shallow BUT that’s part of the appeal, right? If I bought the Vitpilen I’d probs have to factor in the ABM kit…

    The MY19 are $10500 ride away here in Oz, so they are an amazing deal ( unlike when they came out and were close to $19K ride away….)

    Confused.

    If you had a poll running I’d vote Vit with lifted bars. 🙂

    Have a look at the gilles tooling bar risers. A lot less work than the abm Superbike kit. And they retain the original lines of the Vit alot better.

    If you click on the photo in that link you get to see a few more pictures of the risers mounted on a bike as well.

    Awesome thanks. 35mm V 90mm with the ABM. I think I’ll get the Vitpilen and see how I go.

    Just put a deposit on a Svartpilen. Vitpilen was sold, had a really nice guy interstate offer me his ( with ABM bar risers), but I think even with those, the Svartpilen will be more comfortable for me.

    Stoked.

    Picked it up Thursday. Absolutely wrapt! Much better choice for me than the Vitpilen. Now let the mods begin!

    I just picked up a 2019 Svartpilen due to the rebates (my local dealer had it marked down to $7475 USD!!!), and I LOVE it. Love the feel and style, and I’m a sucker for the murdered-out matte black look. My only issue is that it seems like, if all the svart/vit models, there are the fewest accessories for the Svartpilen 701. That’s a bummer, as I’m a natural-born accessorizer lol
