The argument from some petrol motorcycle riders is that you need engine noise to be seen on the road.
As a road rider, whether on a bicycle, scooter or motorcycle, you must always ride in the present and anticipate other drivers move.
From our experience, the advantage of an electric motorcycle or scooter rider, is the auditory senses are much better than a petrol rider with a noisy engine.
Without this distraction you can be more present as a cyclist can be on the road.
The powerful LED lights and horn also benefit road awareness.
