Macho Electric Motorcycle for Eco Warriors

By: Jeremy Gutsche - Published:   Updated: Jul 14 2011 • References: popularmechanics & techeblog
The Stealth is perhaps the first macho looking eco motorcycle... The bike is powered by lithium ion batteries, which propel the bike with horsepower equivalent to a 500 cc bike. The only two kickers: the top speed is just 50 mph and the bike makes no noise. While a silent ride could be a positive feature, most harley riders will miss out on the growl. Still, a very cool invention.

Implications - Environmentalists can jump onto the Stealth for a joyride complete with thrill, excitement and some speed and won't have to worry about harming the environment. While the Stealth may not be the fastest bike out there, it certainly allows consumers to hop on guilt-free and cruise down the streets, looking super fly on these revolutionary bikes.
