Pierer Mobility is growing a brand new vary of electrical Husqvarna streetbikes for 2022. The brand new line will probably be styled after the Svartpilen and Vitpilen line, with the corporate giving it the tentative title of “Husqvarna E-Pilen“.
The Husqvarna E-Pilen was outlined in a slide from the corporate’s report for buyers for the primary half 0f 2020. The slide describes the E-Pilen as utilizing a modular battery system, with both a 4 kW or a ten kW electrical motor. A sketch of the E-Pilen (pictured above) provides us a tough concept of what the bike might appear like. It needs to be famous that there’s quite a lot of time for additional improvement and adjustments earlier than the deliberate 2022 launch, so anticipate the completed product to look a little bit totally different.
That Pierer Mobility is engaged on an electrical motorbike isn’t stunning, contemplating the Austrian has already launched, or will quickly launch, electrical fashions for its KTM, Husqvarna and GasGas manufacturers. KTM already gives the 16 kW Freeride E and 5 kW SX-E, whereas Husqvarna gives the 5 kW EE-5. GasGas, in the meantime, will quickly be launching its TXE electrical trial bike which can use a 15 kW motor.
All of those bikes, nevertheless, are off-road bikes. What’s stunning is the primary electrical streetbike from the corporate will probably be a Husqvarna and never a KTM. Contemplating the quantity of crossover between the KTM and Husqvarna strains, we are able to’t rule out a possible E-Duke down the road, however in the mean time, solely an E-Pilen has been confirmed.
The modular battery system can also be a shock, although it’s not clear if this refers back to the batteries being swappable or maybe scalable, with a selection of battery capacities for increasing vary. It’s value noting that slide doesn’t point out a modular battery system for the Husqvarna E-Scooter deliberate for 2021.
