it is very pleasing to the ears i must say, a very nice howl and growl. but there again i like Yoshi's and the like.

you know its on the back thats for sure but in a good way. never found the engine to be obtrusively noisey to be honest and the more you rev it the better it sounds. Never would have thought i would ever say that about a 2 stoke as not keen on em at all on bikes except me gas gas

I saw that video when a link was posted a few months ago and wondered whose boat it was and what the engine was, because it does sound fantastic and I also like the Vipermax

I also don't like 2 strokes as a rule but I am growing rather attached to the noise that even the V4 Johnson makes when you firewall the throttle from a standing start. It's just the bit its bolted to that leaves a bit to be desired (oh and the fuel consumption!)
