This is one of the most important things to remember; your budget. As the old saying goes, never spend more than you can afford. Paying at a high price for something with many inclusions may feel rewarding at first, but it can become a hassle and troublesome as time passes by.

When it is well taken care of, it is likely that there are minimal repairs or problems that you’ll encounter along the way.Be assertive when it comes to asking about the inclusions. There are various situations when people tend to overlook the inclusions indicated in the endorsed car lease agreement. As simple as it may sound, it can actually create misunderstandings or burdens in the future. Before entering a deal, you should be well-aware of the services that you can enjoy, as well as the limits to certain things such as mileage and what to do in the event of an accident. Think about the totality of what you will pay.

Road and Track: A lithe BMW R80 restomod by 46Works

BMW R80 restomod by 46Works
When Shiro Nakajima isn’t honing his considerable talents in his home workshop at the base of the Yatsugatake Mountains, you’ll find him racing at the Tsukuba Circuit, a few hours away. Those opposing environments are reflected in Nakajima-san’s custom bikes; tasteful restomods that are aesthetically restrained, but also built to be ridden hard.

The man known as 46Works also has an affinity for European motorcycles, carried over from his days as the founder of the powerhouse restomod workshop, Ritmo Sereno. This explains why his latest creation—a wonderfully prepped 1986 BMW R80 restomod—looks so damn good.

The bike was built as a collaboration between 46Works and the Japanese leather racing suit manufacturer Kushitani. Founded in the late 1940s in Hamamatsu, Kushitani has made leathers for Grand Prix racing greats like Randy Mamola, Wayne Gardner, Kevin Magee, and Kevin Schwantz. They’re also Shiro’s go-to race suit supplier, and they’ve collaborated on numerous 46Works apparel collections.

Shiro’s goal was to build a lithe machine that would be just as happy on the track as it would be on B-roads. His second priority was making sure that once the bike was parked, it would give its rider endless details to ogle.

2024 Husqvarna Svartpilen 801

Ups

Downs

If you want the full electronics package, it’s extraWhy didn’t Husky put a twin in this bike earlier!?Sport-spec tires would be an improvement

Verdict

Husqvarna has now embarked on an entirely new trajectory by adding a parallel twin to the Svartpilen. This naked roadster is sporty, comes with a fantastic engine, and is no longer just an entry-level machine.

Overview

Husqvarna’s Svartpilen first broke cover as a 375cc single-cylinder-powered naked back in 2018 and was instantly met with accolades for its hip styling and fun performance. In 2019, Husky upped the ante and released the Svartpilen 701, which used the 692.7cc LC4 single from the 701 Supermoto/Enduro. But for 2024, Husqvarna has raised the stakes again with the release of the LC8c parallel-twin-powered Svartpilen 801, utilizing the engine found in KTM’s 790 Duke.

Updates for 2024

With twin-cylinder power, this brand-new Husqvarna has taken a leap forward and finds itself going head-to-head with an entirely different segment of the middleweight market.

Pricing and Variants

The base Svartpilen 801 starts at $10,899 and is only available in one dark gray/silver color scheme as pictured. Options include the Dynamic package ($420) and Cruise Control ($289), the former offers an additional ride mode and full control over rider aids, while the later adds cruise control and a custom shortcut button for modes.

Competition

As mentioned, with twin-cylinder power, the Svartpilen finds itself up against fresh competition from the likes of Honda’s CB650R, Triumph’s Trident 660, Ducati’s Monster, Suzuki’s GSX-8S, and Yamaha’s MT-07.

Powertrain: Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The Svartpilen 801′s LC8c engine is shared with KTM’s 790 Duke and 790 Adventure models. The engine is a 799cc liquid-cooled parallel twin with double-overhead cams and four valves per cylinder. Bore and stroke measure 88.0 x 65.7mm with lightweight forged aluminum bridged-box pistons and a 12.5:1 compression ratio. The engine has semi dry-sump lubrication and has 15,000-kilometer (9,320-mile) service intervals. Keeping it smooth are a pair of balance shafts, one in front of the crankshaft and the other between the camshafts.

After riding the bike in southern France, Editor-at-Large Blake Conner said: “It doesn’t take long to appreciate the LC8c’s performance. Husqvarna claims 105 hp at 9,250 rpm with 64.0 lb.-ft. of peak torque 6,500 rpm. In this world of second- and third-gear twists and turns the engine delivers excellent performance. Torque is easily accessible right off the bottom and builds with a steady rush as you head toward 9,000-plus rpm.

“Keeping the engine in its midrange sweet spot is aided by the standard Easy Shift up/down quickshifter, which we have to say continues to get more and more refined on each generation of LC8c.

“This engine is as flexible as they come. The engine is torquey and behaves predictably, never acting jerky or requiring much effort to ride smoothly. Roll out of town into the twisties and it comes to life, no doubt aided by the bike’s light overall weight (a claimed 399 pounds without fuel). There is more than enough performance to snap the front tire off the ground at will or to get the rear tire protesting and sliding if you’re not in a conservative TC setting.”

Chassis and Handling

The frame is a tubular steel front section that uses the engine as a stressed member, while the subframe is a cast-aluminum piece that also acts as the rear end’s tailsection (without any bolted-on plastic parts for bodywork). A die-cast aluminum swingarm actuates the shock directly.

Up front is a 43mm inverted WP Apex fork with rebound and compression adjustability and 5.5 inches of travel. The linkageless WP Apex shock has 5.9 inches of travel and is adjustable for spring preload and five clicks of rebound damping.

“The roads we encountered in southern France ranged from smooth perfection to a potholed mess,” Conner added. “For this reason we left the clickers alone both front and rear on the fork and shock. The middle-of-the-road settings proved to be the right compromise, offering good feedback, nice holdup at speed and under braking, and plush bump absorption over the nasty stuff.

“Handling on the 801 is crisp and predictable, with a quick-steering front end giving the bike excellent agility in the many
