That is awesome. With it being so quiet you could ride anywhere with out being harassed. Now if they can come up with a way to recharge it quickly and places to do it I would pick up a supermoto. Man the possibilities with a bike so quiet.


Favorite thing on my bike: the miles I put on it

We are a couple of significant improvements in battery technology away from seeing the end of the combustion engine. Relish the time you are living in now peeps. I think we're seeing the last of the firebreathing dino-burners.

I'd definitely be interested in riding one of those if they make it over here.

Can you imagine how much nicer it would be to ride at allsports with all battery powered bikes? You could keep the doors closed to keep it warmer inside, no exhaust so no headaches, and it would be much quieter. Honestly the excessive exhaust is the thing I dislike the most about allsports.

It wouldn't bother me in the least if all my bikes were electric if I could still get the range out of them. I bet it is a safe bet to say that there will be more accidents with electric motorcycles. People barely look both ways before crossing or turning now and if they don't hear a bike screaming down the road that is one less thing to help them notice you.

I dunno, I love the sound of a good thumper.

Oh I love the sound of all kinds of bikes but I just think there are a lot of benefits of being quiet. Mostly you can tear it up and be a hooligan wherever and unless someone sees you they wouldn't even know you are there. Tracks wouldn't get complaints from neighbors and have to fight legal battles to stay open. You could build a track in your backyard without pissing off the whole neighborhood. If your flying down the road a cop won't hear you a mile away.
