As I recall, viscosity is high. Could be a problem in winter. Particularly since motorcycle water pumps are not the most robust things.
Water has a higher heat capacity and can transfer more heat than Evans. The use of Evans won't lower your engine temps but is used to eliminate boil-over.
Evans is simply 100% propylene glycol (plus their own secret corrosion inhibitor package). Instead of ethylene glycol, standard automotive antifreeze. PG is less toxic.
Evans is not unique. Engine Ice, Amsoil coolant, and even your Peak antifreeze Sierra brand also use propylene gycol but at various %'s and additives. Engine Ice and Amsoil I believe is mixed with DI water which is supposed to remove 99% of all impurities in water.
Lifetime fluids always are questionable to me.
