Having expensive, fragile silicon PV cells out front serving as your bumper isn't the brightest idea going. If I ever do mount a solar panel on my ebike, I'd only use a panel comprised of flexible amorphous cells that can withstand the inevitable collision.

Very good point.

And with the flexible one, I think there will be some weight savings and it can be shaped into a curved shape.

While solar technology looks promising, sometime it doesn’t quite seem ready to power our vehicles. This solar trike looks pretty good to me. And it would be great if the maker could tweak a little on the outlook design and price as well.
