Please comment about the drone or lack-thereof. I would like a sportier sound without going into drone.

There may be some drone and it will be louder when new. It calms into a nice rumble as you put some miles on it. I love mine, nice rumble at idle, but screams at WOT.

Like pj said.. It's pretty new.. At the start up its sounds great, when you give it gas is when you'll feel and hear it, but once you cruising you don't notice it. I'm having fun with it. I shoot a short vid tomorrow from the inside because I'm taking a 6 hr road trip. That will give you an idea for the on the cabin

I drove to michigan and back.. About 6 hrs. It was a fun drive of stepping on the gas and hearing it growl. Once I was cruising it was as normal as can be
