The report from Visordown tells us that this pet can be primarily based off of the E-Pilen (see above), which is slotted to be revealed this 12 months courtesy of Husqvarna. Notable options to share with the Husky will purportedly embrace the fastened battery pack, which means the bike must be charged from a set supply fairly than eradicating and changing batteries – a great factor, Electrek reminds us, since detachable battery packs sometimes imply a heavier battery, with the bike struggling lack of efficiency for the sake of moveable instant-charge comfort.
