    Quiet ATV?

    Anyone else surprised that gas powered atv companies haven't came out with an ultra quiet utility style atv even after electric bad boy buggies have been out for over a decade who's entire premise is that they're ultra quiet? and scent free but at least gas atv companies could develop a super quiet utility quad version?

    Due to the design of internal combustion engines, the high-pressure created in the combustion chamber slams a piston against the crankshaft. Not sure what they could do to make them much quieter.

    Or are you wanting something like this: http://www.ecoeatv.com/

    One of my neighbors bought one of the "quiet" mufflers for his atv. IMHO was a waste of $$$$. Didn't make much difference, a little but not enough for me to change.

    I'm sure they could engineer them to be at least as quiet as a honda civic etc...

    how about a rotary engine instead of that piston you speak of...?

    a 2nd muffler/silencer I know they sell, but would be nice to just have it quiet from the factory...


    maybe I do need an electric golf kart... or just a jeep etc...
