2020 Zero Motorcycles: The Soothing Hum of Electricity

Ever wonder why you can hear electricity? The hum of the electricity is remarkably soothing and adds to a relaxing Zero motorcycling experience.  With upto 196 miles/315km range, the 2020 Zero electric motorcycles have arrived. Eight environmentally friendly, climate change combating bikes ensuring a clean, safe and sustainable environment for present and future generations. Sporty 2020 Zero SR/F, street oriented 2020 Zero SR and  2020 Zero S, adventurous 2020 Zero DS, 2020 Zero DSR, 2020 Zero Black Forest; supermoto inspired 2020 Zero FXS and the organic on/off-road 2020 Zero FX are must-see models. If Greta Thunberg rode a motorcycle, do you think she would pick a Zero?

So why can you hear electricity? Actually, you can’t, what you are hearing is the stray magnetic fields (electric hum) around transformers, pumps, industrial machinery (and anything else close to electricity) causing the enclosure and accessories to vibrate. See, electricity has a frequency, like the vibration when you strum the strings of a 60’s Fender Jazz Bass guitar (that is what I play) of 60 Hz (in USA, Canada) and 50 Hz (rest of the world), which creates a tone almost exactly halfway between A♯ and B. In Europe and a 50 Hz tone, which is closer to a G in North America.
