Among the many green offerings from the Frankfurt Motor Show is a new bike from Husqvarna called the e-go, an electric bicycle that looks just like a motorcycle but appears to be floating on air. The e-go weighs just 176 pounds and its frame, though sturdy and well-supported, is designed in such a way as to make the rear half look airy and light.

The single seat takes a more aggressive stance, which is what makes the e-go look like more of a motorcycle at first glance. We love the red bicycle chain that gives away this bike’s true nature, though. Check out our gallery for all the lovely details. No word yet on availability or pricing, as the e-go is currently a prototype.

    It *IS* a motorcycle. An electric motorcycle, sure, but it still has a motor turning something. The whole appearance of it is like that of trials bikes.
