Beat me to the link (Not really, I just don't know how to do it!)

In the 90's they had bicycles with moto fairings etc and I threw a fit when my parents said I would never get one. They reminded me that I had a real XR50 sitting in our garage at home LMAO.

Yup, Harley.
Harley-Davidson LiveWire Electric Motorcycle- First Ride Video Review

The problem I see is that the sound system they will need to install to make it obnoxiously loud will drain the batteries much too quickly.

^ In 20 years the self driving HD won't have handlebars, but they will have gloves with leather grips stitched in that will bluetooth air throttle position to the exhaust subwoofer. Which will of course make the rider feel all warm and fuz...I mean big and bad so nobody messes with him!

Most bikes are quiet from the factory. Its the removal of the muffler and or exhaust system that makes them loud.

Anyone watch Southpark, the F word?
