Taiwanese scooter company Kymco looks set to move into the superbike category with a loud electric model if this teaser video is any guide.
It was filmed at the French round of World Superbikes at Magny-Cours. The video simply asks spectators “What’s speed?”, “What’s energy?”, “What’s the motorbike of the future?” and “What’s the sound of the future’s motorbike?”
Their answers seem to indicate that Kymco will produce a loud, fast and electric superbike.
But how do you make a near-silent electric bike loud?
Harley tried it by meshing the driving gear on their LiveWire, but it’s not exactly loud. It makes a medium-level “whoosh” sound like a turbine.
The noise answer will be unveiled next week during the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan.
