Harley-Davidson phone measurement OTS

In Bremerhaven-Lehe, a police patrol noticed a motorcycle on Wednesday afternoon, April 20, 2021. The driver drove onto Hafenstrasse around 3:30 p.m. Even when accelerating slightly, the motorcycle became noticeably loud. The Harley-Davidson was stopped.

During an inspection it was found that the registration certificate stated a maximum volume of 85 decibels. The police officers carried out a sound level measurement at the office. The value determined here was well over 100 dB. Even an increase of +10 dB is perceived by the human ear as a doubling of the volume.

The vehicle was then seized and presented to an independent expert today. The inspector confirmed the values ​​determined by the police in another sound level measurement. Because an unapproved exhaust system was installed on the Harley, the operating license expired as a result of the changes.

  1. A Harley is loud? Oh how can this happen? An “independent expert”? Those who are only allowed to make special entries? Those who, strangely, give Lotus, Ferrari, etc a release in Germany? So so..
