Husqvarna Vitpilen wins design awards

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

The Husqvarna 401 Vitpilen concept has received two design awards, a “Silver Winning” award from the International Design Excellence Awards (organized by the Industrial Designers Society of America), and the “Best of Best” award from the Automotive Brand Contest (organized by the German Design Council). 

The Vitpilen’s designers “drew their inspiration from Husqvarna’s golden age and the iconic 1953 Silverpilen,” Husky says. According to a press release, this bike “offers just a glimpse of Husqvarna’s future in the street bike sector.”

Sounds good – we’d love to see some pure street offerings from Husky. But for now, the Vitpilen remains a concept with no confirmed plans for production. Winning some awards can’t hurt, though.
