husqvarna e go electric bike

presented at the frankfurt motor show 2011, the ‘e-go’ electric bicycle is a prototype by italy-based manufacturers husqvarna, conceptualized as a human-powered alternative to electric motorcycles. weighing 80-kilograms (176 pounds), the ‘e-go’ is a single-seater designed for urban commuters and first-time bikers. it retains the side panels and styling of the company’s motorcycle models, in a single-sided double pipe front end design that features 17-inch aluminum wheels. described as ‘self-supporting’, the seat is central to an streamlined and aggressive-looking but nonetheless seemingly freefloating profile that stretches towards the rear of the bike. the company has not yet released details on expected cost or availability.

  • I’m not a fan of the double single-side front fork. But I love the conept, I would love a electric supermoto with some wheelie potential and a 40mile radius.

  • Interesting and important information. It is really beneficial for us. Thanks

  • This article could use some clarification. That is clearly an electric motorcycle, or a super motard styled electric scooter. There is no way that is a human powered or electric bicycle. If it were about 130 pounds lighter you might be able to call that a bicycle.

  • I’m loving the idea a bit more then the actual design right now. It looks a bit to dirt bikeish. An electric motorcycle is really only effective in city areas right with its limited distance, then why does it look like if you changed the tires you should be going out in the woods or a dirt track?
