The silent revolution is underway!
With the popularity of electric motorcycles growing everyday an the top manufacturers now truly invested to make electric a solid part of their offering, stunt rider Chris Northover has teamed up with film maker Oli Tennent and OSET Bikes to show off just what these incredible machines can do in the hands of a pro and how the riding experience and connection to the riders environment differs – for the positive!
Chris is known for his amazing video ‘Storm the embassy’ which now has over 20 million views, where again on this OSET electric bike, he shows just how versatile and fun electric motorcycles can be in urban environments.
In this new video ‘Silent Running’ its all about the different riding experience you get on a virtually silent motorcycle and the connection a rider had with their natural environment.
According to Chris:
"The bike is lightweight, tough and with enough power to get you up the side of a mountain, it’s fun pure and simple. From whistling through a cave, to exploring the countryside you’re greeted with a smile by everyone you come across, often followed by a list of excited questions about the bike itself.
“For me, motorcycles started with an engine. The smell of the fuel. The smell of the exhaust. To learning to kick start my first bike. Now electric bikes have come along, and we’ve lost some of those smells and those sounds, but we haven’t lost any of the experience.”
James Robertson, Head of Marketing for OSET Bikes followed with,
“Its great to have riders of Chris calibre seeing that the future is definitely electric and promoting the greener side of motorcycling and I hope that by seeing just how much fun electric motorcycles are, we can continue to inspire the next generation of riders.”
