In it's first ride ever, Paul Teutul Sr of Orange County Choppers, drove the bike around Columbus Circle in New York City, where it was admired by hundreds of New Yorkers and tourists. Most couldn't believe how quiet it was!
Siemens and Orange County Choppers unveiled the bike outside the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle in New York City on August 12th, 2009. Daryl Dulaney, President and CEO of Siemens Industry Inc, emceed the event.
