"400bhp fury. and here's the thing: it's not frightening"
“It’s gasps and sighs are all amplified by the airbox just above your left ear: the induction noise as the throttle pedal goes down, and all the wastegate noise as it comes back up. Even if it’s lost the yelping character of the supercharged Honda engine fitted to older Atoms, the new turbo unit adds all kinds of sounds of its own. So acute and high-pitched is the chirruping sound it makes when you lift the throttle, it might make you jump the first few times you hear it. It’s as if the engine’s possessed by a malevolent spirit of driving, shrieking with laughter every time you need a confidence lift on the throttle.”
