motor music
 n.— «

My favorite part of this bike: its sound. What Moto Guzzi refers to as its “motor music,” or engine and exhaust notes, was better than any new record I’ve heard recently, particularly the crackle upon roll-off of the catalyzed, 2-1 exhaust, which looks like carbon fiber but isn’t. I like to ride with the throttle open, but this “motor music” was so appealing, I was looking for excuses to snap it back.
