The Vitpilen 701 really benefits from the dark grey “701” tank pads to liven up the tank. However, I’ve never seen a picture of a 401 sporting the tanks pads with the Husqvarna logo. Has anyone got any photos? I’m torn between whether it would liven up the tank or just look daft on a white tank.
Thanks for that. The photos on there were worth installing Instagram for. 🙂
To be honest I’d seen your painted bike in the Gallery thread when I was deciding what bike to go for and your bike made me decide to go with the 401. I have the photo stored on my desktop and use it for inspiration. I hope you wouldn’t be upset if I paint my bike the same colour in due course – it does look superb.
If I do paint the bike I will definitely go with the tank pads. However, what I’ve been searching for in vain is a picture of the stock white Vitpilen with the tank pads. I’ve seen them on Svartpilens and on the two-tone Vitpilen but no-one seems to have put them on the white Vitpilen.
