MagicSmoke on the El Moto site found this great review of the Zero S, Native GPR-S and Brammo Enertia at Motorcycle.com. See it here:

Left some comments on the motorcycle.com forum about this article. I asked them why there are no torque readings on the dyno graph. Sounds like they are talking to Bill Dube about the best way to read motor RPM so they can graph torque.

This thread was highlighted by a spammer but being new to the forum it is one I hadn't seen. It is interesting to see how far the bikes have come in just 2 years. What would be really cool would be for Motorcycle.com to revisit this review with the same riders and the latest bikes from the same three makers and comment on the improvements. And we could bag some Harley exhaust for the one guy so he feels like he is around motorbikes. LOL. :D
