Get a set for my neighbors so they dont bug my wife's horses. She would love that.

But, from this you would hear every loose part rattle. That would be good, but would drive me nuts.

Biggest problem with MX or any dirt bikes is the noise they make and complains from anyone that has to live near a track or a popular riding area, so a electric dirt bike would sure make things a lot quitter for the people living close.
But put a whole lot of electric bikes together in one go and it might sound like a swam of bees coming towards you.

When I win the Lottery, I am going to buy a big bad Harley and a Mustang to tow it home when it gives up.

I found the racing in the Barry Sheene Memorial Trophy at Goodwood Revival much more interesting than MotoGP. When most of the guys are riding 500cc thumpers, you can see who the real good guys are. Imagine doing that with electric bikes. Why would you bother ?

How fast do you think riders are capable of riding for on lap on the IOM TT?

The LBX is very popular and also have a road legal version, These things are so much fun and not much bigger than a mountain bike and only 47kg cooppared to my 350exc-F's 110kg

The reason why I didn't print that is because these little electric bikes can lap faster than most single cylinder 500s!
