From Hasqvarna press release:

The 2024 Svartpilen 801 is the latest expansion of our naked motorcycle line-up. It combines exceptional versatility, performance, and style for the streets. Its minimalist, scrambler-inspired design features a new compact and powerful parallel-twin engine, perfectly balanced tubular frame, and refined ergonomics for an engaging, intuitive ride. Complete with adjustable WP suspension, state-of-the art electronic aids, and finished with sharp lines and dark colors, the Svartpilen 801 allows each rider to set their own tone for urban riding.

Combining performance, agility, and contemporary scrambler-inspired design, the Svartpilen 801 is the latest and largest displacement naked machine in the brand’s line-up. Engineered to elevate the road riding experience and escape the ordinary, this exceptional motorcycle sets a new standard of excellence for middleweight street models.

Weighing just 181 kg, the Svartpilen 801 is built around a strong and light chromium-molybdenum tubular steel frame for a precise balance of flex and rigidity. At its heart is a powerful 799 cc, parallel-twin, DOHC engine. Tipping the scales at 52 kg dry, the engine offers a peak power output of 105 hp with its reliability and efficiency guaranteed by innovative technologies that extend service intervals to 15,000 km and ensure an extremely low fuel consumption.

The pairing of its lightweight engine and frame gives the Svartpilen 801 a perfectly balanced power-to-weight ratio, resulting in a consistently agile and exciting ride. A Power Assist Slipper Clutch (PASC) system maximises traction under hard acceleration and prevents instability under hard braking, with an Easy Shift providing seamless gear changes. Adjustable WP APEX suspension offers 140 mm of fork travel and 150 mm of shock travel for assured comfort and handling both in and out of town. Pirelli MT60 RS tyres, which are fitted to 17” wheels, provide a high level of grip and feedback.

The minimalist look of the Svartpilen 801 is achieved by its premium details such as the LED lights, and aluminium handlebars coming together to create a unique and eye-catching street machine. Slimline ergonomic bodywork finished in dark tones wraps neatly around the engine and frame with a two-piece seat offering a high level of comfort and unrestricted movement. State-of-the-art electronic aids improve the rideability of the Svartpilen 801 with an optional Dynamic Pack taking the street riding experience to an even higher level. In addition to adjustable Motorcycle Traction Control (MTC) and ABS, Street, Rain, and Sport ride modes are pre-set options as standard. The Dynamic Pack introduces Motor Slip Regulation (MSR) for controlled deceleration with the Anti-Wheelie mode limiting the maximum wheelie angle for extra safety. A best-in-class technology package provides ease of use and maximum performance for every rider. The J.Juan brake system delivers exceptional stopping power thanks to the corner-sensitive Bosch ABS system. For advanced riders, a Supermoto ABS mode can be engaged by those looking for a heightened level of braking feel and a closer connection with the road. Versatility and safety are enhanced by premium electronic features, including a 5” TFT dashboard and Connectivity Unit as standard. Pairing the unit with the Ride Husqvarna Motorcycles app allows for clear Turn-by-Turn navigation to be activated, as well as the ability to control telephone calls and music selection. A Hazard Warning system is also integrated into the handlebar controls while anti-theft protection is provided via the immobiliser.
