What an Electric Motorcycle Sounds Like

Curious as to what an electric motorcycle sounds like?

Well, lots of people ask me about it, so I shot a video showing of what my cycle sounds like. No background music, no audio editing, just some shots of the cycle as I actually use it in real life.

If you think that "Loud Pipes Save Lives", please check out a way to make an electric motorcycle sound exactly like ANY other cycle out there!

This cycle is running just a plain stock chain. I also test-rode a commercially-available electric cycle a while back. That one featured a belt drive. Man, was that thing quiet!

Enjoy the video!
