Solar powered motorbike

Amidst all the commotion and tension in Afghanistan, a young talented boy has a vision for the future. A future that is free from any pollution and let’s hope other problems too. Mustafa Mohammadi, a polytechnic graduate from an institute in Northern Jawzjan, Afghanistan has built a solar-powered motorbike which has solar panels on roof top to charge the battery. The motorbike can go at a top speed of 40 kilometers per hour and is completely made by this young aspiring boy in his home.

When the bike has consumed all the solar-energy it can be alternatively run on pedal-power too. According to Mustafa it took him almost one and a half month to create this three-wheeled motorbike. It took him 90,000 AFN (USD $1548 approx.) to put together his contraption.

Mustafa put together this vehicle using salvaged car and motorcycle parts. The solar-powered motorbike has two front-wheels and a rear wheel which gives it a very futuristic look. There are no details about the motorbike other than what we have provided, but if there is some more information we’ll keep you updated.
