Technology.am (May 20, 2009) — Richard Gryzch, a Phoenix-area man decided to exploit natural resource to power an electric motorcycle. He has been working on this project for the past 2 years, and he sold his house and other motorcycles to finance his dream.
Finally he successfully developed the first completely solar-charged electric motorcycle.
The Solar Flyer–named after the famous Radio Flyer red wagon–is a modified motorcycle covered in solar panels that generate enough electricity to power the vehicle for 50 miles, at a top speed of 90 mph.
But the hobbyist from Apache Junction, Ariz., isn’t finished tinkering with his zero-emissions bike–ultimately, he’d like the Solar Flyer to have a 300-mile range.
