Orange County Choppers Builds Its First Electric Motorcycle

Orange County Choppers, the New York-based custom motorcycle shop, is famous for its loud, raked-back choppers. The shop is also the scene of the TLC reality show American Chopper. Recently, OCC worked with Siemens to develop an electric motorcyle:

On Wednesday, Siemens, the electronics and electrical engineering global powerhouse, unveiled the Smart Chopper it commissioned from the renowned custom motorcycle outfit. Siemens claims the bike has a 60-mile range and a 100 mph top speed. An onboard charging unit can be plugged into any 110-volt socket to charge the bike in five hours, and Siemens says it’ll charge in as little as one hour when plugged into a higher-voltage station. A single-speed, clutch-less transmission delivers the power from a 27-hp electric motor.

I think that for disabled riders like myself,this would be the perfect unit to turn into a three wheeler.60 mile range would be plenty enough miles for me. It would great to once again feel the breeze in my hair & the sun on my face. Keep up the great work Paul sr. & O.C.C.
