    It looks alright. I find it the first Harley for a long time that looks like a HD but also looks modern. That's probably a sad comment on the brand in retrospect .....

    Anyway - bloody expensive. For the rich.

    It may work out OK for HD owners price wise as you won't have to buy a new filter, pipes, ECU .......

    wonder if most of the stored energy will be wasted on making them sound loud, just like the current harleys

    For once I'm seriously concerned for HD. Isn't the "sound of Harley" the trademark of HD motorcycles, and the main selling-point? Isn't that why customers keep on buying them and attach aftermarket or Screamin' Eagle pipes, for that sound?

    If Mustang had no sound nobody would be buying it.


    If you can make it on Kiwibiker you can make it anywhere.

    And I would also want the vibration, exhaust smells etc like a real bike would have.

    I had an interesting conversation with a sprintcar racer the other day (V8 on a lawnchair, go out, turn left) and theres apparently a guy looking to do an EV conversion on one to see how it goes. Gobs of torque, lighter than the V8 and similar performance but the first thing the guy said to me is "Won't sound like a V8" ... that might be a good thing at Western Springs.....

    Sparked a bit of interest but current price is shocking.

    Anybody who says that electric bikes are silent or boring obviously hasn't heard one at full chat. They sound awesome! I can't wait for MotoE to hear a full pack of them.

    There's a person who lives in my city who owns an Energica Eva (basically the naked equivalent of the Ego used for MotoE) and they went fuckin' FLYING past me one day. Sounded bonkers!
