Solar-Powered Motorbike Hides in its Own Shell

Aside from being fairly ugly and buy fioricet entirely imaginary, SunRed's new snail-shell-based solar bike is completely awesome.

All the other blog posts I've read about this are reporting that the snail-shell covering will stow away during transport...but that's not entirely accurate. Obviously, the nose panel (which contains the light and rear-view mirror) will remain in place, while the three back panels will fold away. Thus, the bike will still pull some charge while traveling.

Even though the bike has way more surface area than any other solar motorbike ever will ever again, it still doesn't pull enough juice to be very useful. A full charge will only get you 13 miles at 30 mph.

Nonetheless, it's an interesting design and I'm looking forward to seeing the real-life prototype from Sun Red soon.

While a range of 13 miles is not great it is plenty for most cities where the viagra seizures average trip is well under 13 miles.

Good point

13 miles is a pretty long bike ride, but I have to agree that most of what this solar bike can do can be done by, y'know, pedaling.

I totally agree. It's a nice alternative for those that can't be persuaded to walk or pedal more often or who are unwilling to give up all motorized forms of transport...
Not that far.

13 miles isn't that far, with moderate pedaling it would take less than an hour on how does cialis work a bicycle. As the solar motorbike can only reach 30mph it would only be half an hour quicker.
And of course if you want to go home again, the bicycle would be home, long before the solar motorcycle recharged its batteries.

That's without mentioning, the no doubt much higher purchase price and maintenance costs of the solar motorcycle and the extra pollution and use of toxic chemicals during manufacture.
