The big motorcycle manufacturers are constantly searching for innovative technologies to improve their models. The latest trend is represented by the electric power trains, so there is no wonder why Husqvarna decided to develop the E-Go Concept.

The concept was designed as a super efficient dirt bike and features a pretty simple style. The company didn’t revealed many details about its new concept, but we do know that it’s powered an electric motor. We also know that it weighs 176 pounds and is packed with a set of innovative suspensions. When we say innovative we mean that both suspension tubes are mounted on the right side of the wheel and feature 35mm inner fork tubes.

The E-go Concept’s style is reflecting the Husqvarna brand identity and features a sporty combination of red and white colors.

For the moment, we don’t know if Husqvarna is planning to launch an electric motorcycle, but judging by their new concept we certainly hope they do.
