Revolt also offers the option for artificial exhaust sound on the RV400, which is an extremely interesting feature. There are four exhaust notes available, named Revolt, Rebel, Roar, and Rage. These can also be controlled via the MyRevolt app, and riders can also choose to switch them off and ride in silence.
