I think it looks pretty cool, particlarly for a harley... and an electric bike nonetheless!

 

I wonder what it is about electric vehicles that every manufcaturer except tesla decides "Hey, lets make this stuff looks as goofy and different as humanly possible".

 

Zero bikes are pretty normal looking too I guess.

Looks aside, I would like to ride it.

 

It's way better looking than that adventure bike harley showed.

It would look better with a fake, shorty pipe.

electric whine?  why not a nice sound system that lets you choose your "exhaust sound", gets louder with rpm type deal... so why not a 16cylinder radial motor sound, why? when was the last time the avg person heard a 16cylinder radial engine 😂😂, that will get your attention...

I test rode a Zero a couple of times. I like the "no sound" of an electric bike. Its a slight "whirring" noise, really. 

 

Noisemakers are just a crazy idea.  What purpose would they serve?  It would be a short fad, and then others would start making fun of it.   Like those fart can mufflers little kids put on their Honda's.

I too have tested out the zero

I liked it, but I think a little noise would be nice

sadly the company i work for makes a car that lets you do just that. Choose an exhaust sound that plays through your speakers.....

Of course, there is no limit to the possibilities of sound. The mind begins to boggle...
