To celebrate International Noise Awareness Day on the 30th April, MHB Motorcycles officially launched their exclusive new range of ‘quiet’ electric motorbikes. The SEV e-Tricks range of electric bikes is currently only available in the UK from MHB Motorcycles in Brough, Cumbria.
Noise Awareness Day, was originally launched by the The Center for Hearing and Communication in the USA to promote awareness of the dangers of long-term exposure to noise. This could be through listening to music too loud, noisy neighbours, or the impact of exposure to transport noise. Some may love the purr of their car, but there is substantial evidence in the UK that the noise of roaring vehicle engines, including motorbikes can have a considerable long term effect on our health and hearing.*
MHB Motorbikes, which was opened two years ago by former British Antarctic Survey engineer Martin Bell, has recently taken delivery of their newest electric vehicles, the E-tricks range by French manufacturer SEV. MHB are the sole supplier of the range in the UK. The bikes are extremely versatile and can be used for commuting, leisure and sport effective for mobility, mountain biking and motorcycling; appealing to all bike users.
What makes these bikes different is that SEV has designed the range with the environment at their forefront of design using environment propulsion, quiet and non-polluting features and is made using 90% recyclable materials. The bikes can be easily charged, easily transportable and not only reduces emissions, but also noise pollution.
