2011 Husqvarna Concept E-Go

Electric vehicles aren’t just limited to cars anymore; it seems that there’s also a growing trend amongst motorcycle makers to introduce a more eco-friendly alternative to the petrol-powered bikes we’ve come to know in the past.

The Husqvarna Concept E-Go is one such bike. Introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show by BMW , the Concept E-go is being touted as the Husqvarna’s approach to today’s electric motorcycling world while also serving as an attractive option for new riders looking to tap into the spirit of motorcycle-riding.

The bike only weighs 80 kg (176 lbs) while also carrying a number of styling cues from some of Husqvarna’s latest models, including the side panels, features that are clearly distinguishable as a Husqvarna. In addition, the bike’s highly personal design also boasts of a "single-sided double leg fork" with 35 mm of inner tube and the aluminum single side swing arm. The concept bike’s battery support is also made out of aluminum whereas the bike’s overall frame and oval piping is cast from steel.

There has been no information yet on the specs that come with the single-seater bike, but according to Husqvarna, the bike will offer you an "explosive mix of road, off-road and supermotard experiences" that combines fun, dynamism and an ecologically-friendly philosophy combined for the first time in an electric powered two-wheeler.
