I'm still not convinced that I would really enjoy riding a bike that just made a whining noise even more bland than the average heavily silenced four cylinder bike. And what would be the range in winter with a cold battery running lights and heated grips? What about ABS and traction control and all the other things that each take a little bit of ECU power? Could always strap a generator to the pillion seat I guess! Lol
