I own an electrically powered small-motorcycle and am in the process of building a full size EV motorcycle.

The vehicle is very silent.

Mine is on the right of the first picture of that page. Notice all the bright colors? I chose those bright colors specifically to stand out and increase the chance of being seen, hopefully to decrease the chance of being run into ... So far that theory has worked.

BTW, here's my motorcycle project page:

"The motorcycle is a primitive thing and it appeals to the inner person. The excitement and exhilaration of a bike is why people ride them."

Hmm, I suppose that explains Hells Angels, eh?

Seriously, in my observation I see some people on two-wheelers who don't seem to fit that primitive stereotype. Thinking about myself, I really enjoy completely the quietness of my ride, because it's like flying on a magic carpet it's so smooth and quiet. I expect a typical motorcycle wouldn't feel the same with it's rattling and wheezing and noise.
