    Choppers are eye-catching, there’s no denying the fact. They sure make a whole lot of heads spin around and drop open quite a few jaws ever time a leather-clad, bearded, tattooed and muscled dude rides one around town. Well, now the environmentalists will marvel at choppers too, and not just because they look awesome and sound lovely, it’s because one of them has embraced eco-friendliness.

    This unique “stilletto” chopper by Giant is a five speed bike with a brushless hub motor conversion. It power up using solar energy and runs on a 36 volt battery pack. The bike uses a solar panel array of 36+ volts and 10 watts. The bike hits 18 to 20mph quickly, enough for your cruising pleasure. The battery can also be ripped off the bike easily, and charged at home, just incase the sun decides to rest on particular days. And if that’s not enough, it has pedals too, incase you decide not to use any power but your own. A great design, the bike is sure to grab a lot of attention.
