Pierer Mobility, the owners of both Husqvarna and KTM, announced their roadmap for future models yesterday. Two of them are of great interest to use two-wheeled street riders.
The first is that there will be a Husqvarna E-Scooter coming in 2021, perfect for in-city short trips. With 4 kW of power, or about 5.5 HP, it looks to be aimed squarely at the low-cost scooter market, putting it up against Japanese and Italian rivals.
The more interesting bike, however, is the Husqvarna E-Pilen, slated for 2022. Utilizing what looks to be something similar to the Svartpilen 401 frame, it slights an electric motor and a modular battery pack where the engine would be.
It also appears that it will be coming in two power ranges, with the 4 kW version (5.5 HP) probably meant for in-city riding and some commuting, and the stronger 10 kW version (13.5 HP) more likely aimed squarely at commuters and day riders.
