    That's a rather quiet motor on that unit. It appears there's a skid plate aft of the front wheel to prevent too much trauma in the event that the front wheel slips on either side of the concrete beams.

    That's great for lateral motion control but it doesn't do much to recover the bodies that get displaced over the handlebars when said front wheel encounters an abrupt cessation of forward momentum upon chance encounter of the adjoining crossbeams!!

    AND there is a headlight... they probably do night runs as well
