It’s a page ripped right out of the Ducati playbook… Or is it the Harley playbook? Or maybe it’s just smart marketing. Anyway, Husky has just rolled out a line of threads named after a couple of its buzziest new models, but the Vitpilen and Svartpilen Clothing Collection isn’t really meant to riff off your Swedish two-wheeler—that would be kind of weird, right?

Give the Swedes credit though; the functional pieces look high-quality and moto-ready while the more casual items aren’t just cheap cotton T-shirts. Given the bikes’ aesthetics, the clothing’s minimal, modern lines complement that whole spartan thing appropriately enough.

Husqvarna also wisely partnered up with renowned moto gear mavens like Rev’It and Bell for some of the functional stuff. We actually did comb through the release, and there are some cool pieces here, including a lid made by Bell and some compelling outers from Rev’It.

Here’s the abbreviated release:

“Husqvarna Motorcycles are pleased to present their 2019 Vitpilen and Svartpilen Clothing Collection—a new range of high-quality functional and casual clothing for Husqvarna Motorcycles riders and dedicated fans.

“The Vitpilen and Svartpilen functional collection is designed to meet the demands of the modern motorcyclist. It features a sophisticated lineup of protective riding gear that combines premium quality with everyday functionality…(along) with timeless style.

“The 2019 lineup of Vitpilen and Svartpilen casual clothing is a revamped range of premium garments and lifestyle accessories that allows Husqvarna Motorcycles enthusiasts to confirm their style with clothing and accessories designed to meet the dynamics of a modern lifestyle. Offering casual wear and lifestyle accessories for men and women this unique collection has been designed to reflect Husqvarna Motorcycles’ highest standards of quality, functionality and style.”
