If ever I were to own a motorcycle, which is not entirely out of the question, it would be diesel powered. Some of my reasons are rational, some are irrational:
  • Diesel engines are more fuel efficient
  • Diesel engines require far less maintenance
  • Diesel engines provide higher torque to displacement
  • Diesel smells nice
  • Diesel engines sound better
  • Diesel engines run cooler
  • Diesel motorcycles are almost non-existant
  • Diesel vehicles are plainly and simply awesome
Without further ado, links and a video.

The NEANDER (turbo-diesel motorcycle)
