Will electric motorcycles replace gas motorcycles? Can you ride your bike in the rain? Is an electric motor all torque? Is there a sudden surge of power? Is your bike heavy? Don’t you miss the noise from your gas motorcycle?
I hear those questions all the time when competing at club and national roadracing events on my Brammo Empulse R. They are valid, so let me begin with the easy ones. As a passionate motorcyclist with two decades of professional racing as my life’s work, I enjoy the sound of a revving ICE (internal combustion engine). Like the whirling and gurgling of a dishwasher, it’s confirmation of work in progress. Over time, however, that sound can become annoying.
