Want a Diesel Motorcycle? You can finally buy one

By James - 11/19/2006

Starting tomorrow, E.V.A. Products BV Holland will start selling the first diesel motorcycle available to the public. A few other manufacturers have showed promise with the fuel, like the military’s KLR or the ThunderStar, but niether of these models are available to the public yet.

It uses an 800cc Daimler-Chrysler powerplant and can run on vegitable oil or diesel fuel. For more info on it, check out gizmag.

They have already pre-sold 15 motorcycles, so put down your deposit and learn how to import a motorcycle.

  1. Ok, so what sort of MPG does it get? How are the emissions compared to a similar sized gas motorcycle? Very intriguing!

  2. Not quite the first diesel motorcycle, but perhaps the first “production” diesel motorcycle. There have been diesel motorcycle kits sold before.

  3. The question, in my mind is: is a person into a “Diesel” motorcycle for economy (high MPG) or the technical novelty? In the case of the high MPG, if you consider the purchase price and other costs, it is not worth it. In the case of the technical novelty, it is worth it. Philip
