With their bicycles in hand, the brothers resolved to do something. They created an environmentally friendly solar-powered motorized bicycle and equipped it with relevant elements such as the battery, engine, and solar panels that they purchased.

While sharing the experience, Veeraguruharikrishnan explained that how duringcycling on vacation during the lockdown and watching YouTube, they get theconcept of inventing something fresh from the things they alreadyown. All varieties of bicycles can be converted to this format. It just costs Rs 10,000, which includes the bicycle. He also added that it can go up to 30 kilometres when exposed to sunshine and can be operated after being charged for 5 hours.
