Default Honda Mugen CR Electric First Ride

I just saw this, I don?t why I haven?t seen it before. Well, I posted it because I think it looks kinda cool and the lack of sound is just SPOOKY.

that looks like me on the demo ride. Surely they should have used a proper mx rider to show the capabilities of the bike? Better if they had it face off against the crf250 or 450

out here i'm hoping that electric bikes will get some farmers to open their property. I keep hearing that the noisy bikes spook cows and horses.

The noise seems to be the biggest issue regarding land use. I don?t think people,neighbors,cats, dogs or anything cares about moto use except for the noise.

Correct.
They are getting too fast for riders to handle.

Electric bikes, sadly, won't save anything. You think we have problems now, well, electric dirt bikes will only make it worse as we'll have more conflict with other trail users. When your on your e-dirt bike and come around the corner of a multi-use trail and scare the hell out of, or even run in to, some hiker(s), horse(s), or MT biker(s), how do you think that'll play out with them? Before they just hated us for what we do and with e-dirt bikes they'll hate us even more. Then there is also the higher risk of potentially running in to, or having run ins with, wildlife. Being too quiet is an issue most don't seem to acknowledge or understand.

Oh, and there are just those out there that hate seeing others have any fun.

Good points, I didn?t think about it that way.
