Siemens has paired up with Orange County Choppers, the custom bike building outfit of TV fame, to build a one-off electric chopper.  The “Smart Chopper” showcases Siemens technology, boasting a 60-mile range and a 100 mph top speed compliments of a 27-hp electric motor.  Charging time is anywhere between 1 and 5 hours depending on the voltage available.  In addition to leveraging Siemens electric technology, the bike also features LED lights compliments of Sylvania, a Siemens subsidiary.  The bike has OCC’s characteristic flair, the least of which is a rear tire that wouldn’t look out of place on a car.  The Smart Chopper will be making its way around the country for the balance of 2009 and is slated for auction in 2010.
