Husqvarna has revealed its electric motorcycle, the Husqvarna E-Pilen earlier than expected at the Munich International Motor Show this week.

Targeted as an urban runaround, the E-Pilen will offer the performance of a 125cc motorcycle producing around 10bhp, with a 14/kw/h battery offering a range of 100km.

Although Husqvarna has teased the model previously, this is the first time it has been seen in the flesh and it follows current Husky design thinking with sharp edges and a single round headlight. The design is fairly minimalist in an effort to offset the bulk that is associated with the necessary battery packs.

Talking of the batteries, the E-Pilen features three removable batteries in line with parent company KTM’s collaboration with Piaggio, Honda and Yamaha to develop swappable battery technology for consumer convenience.

While it may seem like a strange decision to reveal a motorbike at what is traditionally a motoring show, the Munich show’s focus is on mobility in all its forms, with an emphasis on electric technology in two-and four-wheel transport.

Expect the E-Pilen to be on show at the EICMA motorcycle show in November to go on sale in early 2022.
