Hoping that someone on the board may have seen an issue like this before. I have a 2018 DCT Tour, current mileage is about 1,300. The bike has been triked by MotorTrike. The problem is a noise / squeal / whine that presents when I am cruising along at 40+ mph then light off the throttle ever so slight so I am not putting power to the ground, and not really free coasting either. I bought the trike used at 600 miles and it had this sound since I have had it. MotorTrike mechanic checked the rear end and says all is up to par and not the cause of the noise. Says that he does not think it is from a motor trike part but likely from the bike. This is not a vibration noise either so it is not a muffler or tow hitch. Take a listen to the video link here. The sound comes into the video right around 30 seconds in. It also comes on again at 0:44 and 1:03. Ignore the first 15 seconds of the video as that issue is resolved.
