Siemens and Orange County Choppers Team Up and Go GREEN!

Siemens commissioned Orange County Choppers (located in Orange County, New York) to create the first custom electric American chopper.

The main difference between this chopper and the others that roll out of their shop is, you won’t hear this one coming. With a 60 mile range and the power to go 100 mph, it’s a powerful ride, but it’s also a quiet one.

The charge system can be plugged into any 110-volt socket and be fully charged in five hours.  When plugged into a high-volt station it only takes one hour to be fully charged.

Siemens provided the LED lighting by OSRAM Sylvania, a Siemens subsidiary, as well as the electric motor, charging system, power management system and wind turbine blade fiberglass.

The Siemens chopper is on tour and will be displayed at IMTS 2010 along with an appearance by Paul Teutul Sr. from Orange County Choppers. After its tour, the chopper will be auctioned off and the proceeds will go to an environmentally friendly charity.

Siemens will be raffling off a second OC Chopper at IMTS this year so BE SURE to stop by the Siemens’ booth to register to win!
