Husqvarna is a well-known Swedish manufacturer of bikes and lawnmowers, among other motorized vehicles. Husqvarna, like many other businesses, recognizes the need to improve its environmental performance. That is why it is concentrating its efforts on developing electric bikes and scooters. Here’s a peek at some of Husqvarna’s upcoming future electric motorcycle and scooter prototypes.
Husqvarna and its high-quality bikes
Husqvarna is a conglomerate of two firms. One company specializes in lawn and lawn care equipment such as lawnmowers and leaf blowers, while the other specializes in motorcycles. People may have heard of Husqvarna because of one or both of these companies.
When we talk about motorcycles, Husqvarna is a well-known motorcycle manufacturer. It created the FE 501 S, which has a 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds, making it one of the world’s fastest dirt bikes. While Husqvarna is known for its high-quality racing bikes, its bikes are also suitable for everyday use.
Motor Husqvarna has a few ideas in mind when it comes to street riding. These concepts may or may not become production models, but they have a reasonable probability of doing so.
The Husqvarna E-Pilen electric concept motorcycles
Husqvarna just introduced the E-Pilen concept, according to Electrek. It has a stunning appearance that makes it appear to be from the future rather than a modern motorcycle manufacturer. The E-Pilen also appears to have a lot in common with its gasoline-powered counterparts. The E-Pilen, on the other hand, features changeable batteries rather than a petrol tank.
There are three batteries in total, each with a handle to make removal easy. So long as Husqvarna supplies spares, it appears that the E-Pilen will be reasonably simple to recharge. The owner could take out the exhausted batteries, charge them overnight, and then replace them with fully charged batteries.
However, the range of E-Pilen’s will remain limited. It gets roughly 62 miles per charge from its three batteries, which is much less than a conventional electric vehicle. The electric motor produces less than 11 horsepower, but it should still be able to reach a top speed of around 70 mph. While the specs aren’t ideal, they’re clearly designed for the city, and they’ll suffice.
Husqvarna’s two electric scooter concept
Around the same time, Motor Husqvarna unveiled two electric scooter designs. There are two types of Vektorr: Vektorr and BLTZ. The Vektorr is a larger scooter with a seat, but the BLTZ is more of a traditional standing scooter. The Vektorr idea seems futuristic since it shares a lot of the same style as the E-Pilen.
Similarly, the BLTZ features a unique design that sets it separate from other popular electric scooters in the United States. The Vektorr and the BLTZ appear to have detachable batteries, similar to the E-Pilen idea. Those batteries, on the other hand, are smaller due to their size variances.
The Vektorr is likely to be powered by a 4-hp electric motor, allowing it to reach a top speed of around 28 mph. Its range, on the other hand, is very similar to that of the E-Pilen. According to Electrek, the Vektorr has a range of 59 miles on a single charge. The BLTZ, on the other hand, has a limited set of specifications. It won’t be the fastest or have the longest electric range because it’s a standing scooter.
