Just because you go green doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. As more hybrid and electric vehicles become available, consumers want to be eco-friendly and still remain fashionable. For those who like the look of Harley-Davidson comes the Orphiro Electric Motorcycle.
As a fully electric bike, the Orphiro Motorcycle not only features a very classy design, but it also provides a comfortable ride for those who prefer to hit the streets in a two-wheeled vehicle. Designed in Holland, the widebody green bike runs off of Li-ion batteries and a motor that boasts a grand total of 72 volts. The five batteries are actually concealed behind its smooth exterior covers, while a center console show the speed and distance.
While it still looks nice, don’t expect the power of a Harley since the Orphiro has a top speed of only 75 mph, but being able to cruise for about 60 miles without having to fill up on gas just might make up for the lack of “oomph” in the speed department. Expect to see some of these rides hitting the pavement come September!
