Found it kind of a lame review, in that he didn’t test the gravel bike on gravel or the mtb model off-road.
Some of the Bosch motors are noisy, my wife has a less powerful one. It's noisier than my Shimano motor, but not as noisy as that. I'd guess that if a motor is putting out a few hundred watts, there's gonna be some noise.

Those are literally the first ones in the country. That was more of a meet and greet than a review. What I found interesting is that they are fast, and a little lighter than most of their direct competitors.

I imagine he'll do a proper test one of these days.
