If you love chopper-style motorcycles and you also want to contribute to a cleaner world, Works Electric makes the perfect bikes for you.
The Oregon-based firm specializes in custom-made chopper-style electric motorcycles. In fact, every bike is one-of-a-kind, as Works Electric designs and engineers each machine according to the customer’s wishes. Its web site only mentions “speeds of up to 140 mph, power of up to 90 kilowatts, range of up to 100 miles”.
Pictured above is the “Baker”, a model Works Electric presented recently (each bike produced has its own name). It features a 70 hp electric engine with 85 pound-feet of torque, and can reach a top speed of 110 mph. A 6.12-kWh lithium battery provides for a range of 60 miles, and is rechargeable in 6 hours. The price is about $25,000.
