Husqvarna's Concept E-go bike for the young riders of the future

Husqvarna Concept E-go. Extreme, light, streamlined. This is Husqvarna's approach to today's electric motorcycling world. Urban commuting for first-time bikers who can have all the attractive features that a Husqvarna machine boasts: an explosive mix of road, off-road and supermotard experiences.
Only 80 kg of pure exhilaration, with an innovative design inspired and derived from the latest Husqvarna models, with features such as the striking side panels that makes this bike clearly a member of the Husqvarna family.

The Concept E-go is Husqvarna's solution to electric motorcycling and how to enthuse the young generation to the spirit of riding and freedom. Change is inevitable, and Husqvarna is ready, with an advanced technological concept and a highly personal design.

The Concept E-go also boasts exclusive technical innovations such as the " single sided double leg fork" , with 35 mm of inner tube and the aluminium single side swing arm.

The battery support is also constructed from aluminium, the frame and oval piping is made from steel, while the seat is self-supporting.

The Concept E-go is a single-seater, because that is the Husqvarna way. Undiluted fun, dynamism and an ecologically-friendly philosophy combined for the first time in an electric powered two-wheeler.
Short and compact, on the Concept E-go, urban traffic will seem like a videogame that will be fun and easy to skilfully nE-gotiate.
