According to Siemens, the “Siemens Smart Chopper “will be featured on the hit TV show American Chopper and was unveiled yesterday in an event at the Time Warner Center.

“If energy or energy efficiency is involved–Siemens is involved,” said Randy Zwirn, CEO of Siemens Energy, Inc. “Our technologies are helping to more efficiently and cleanly produce, deliver, consume and conserve energy. And these technologies are here today. This bike represents the spirit of innovation and passion we have for seeking sustainable solutions for our planet.”

  1. It's great that OCC has created a green chopper it brings to light all the other electric bikes, mopeds, or scooters already available on the market to day.

  2. The Orange County Choppers Gladiator Garage Works bike will be on display at the upcoming Chicago Auto show. I heard the bike will be displayed by a local Gladiator garage company. So if any one else is interested head to the Auto show Feb 12th – 21st. And check out the newest bike.

  3. I heard this bike stopped working a day after they showed it. There's a new company making an electric Harley Davidson that will ACTUALLY WORK. Imagine that. It'll be interesting to see how Electric Thrust stacks up to OCC as it fades out of the light.

  4. @ J. MELENDEZ
    I was thinking the same thing. All their bikes look alike. The rage now is huge front tires with huge saddlebags thatalmost touch the ground. Pitiful that when someone see's a bike they have got to HAVE ONE JUST LIKE IT. Nothing about "one's own taste". Then again if you want a cookie cutter bike there are plenty out there.
