Default No Potato Potato Sound From This Harley

The new Livewire E-Harley has its own unique sound and it isn't what we are used to from a Harley.

I'm curious how well it compares to the others already on the market. Both in price and performance. Those HD badges easily add $1k each.

This is exactly what I thought. I've watched videos of the Zeros (which also look badass) and I don't remember them sounding like that.

It wouldn't surprise me if this is where they found the idea to make it sound like this.

It makes a high pitched electrical sound that gets louder the faster the bike goes. At least it sounded that way to me.
