    Diesel bikes? noisy?, smelly? uninteresting?, now looky this.

    Diesel bikes? noisy?, smelly? uninteresting?, now looky this. Yep, I know I'm repeating the headline but this is worth a good look, 100bhp does not sound much in this day and age but look at the torque figures. That sounds like grunt on top of grunt.

    It is interesting!

    For an off-road/trails bike (not motocross; just serious trail riding, especially for long distances in remote areas) a diesel bike sounds like a good idea - from the standpoint of very high torque at low revs (which is why "thumpers" are generallybetter for this kind of riding than two-strokes) as well as ruggedness, durability - for example, the ability handle dirty filters/contaminated fuel better than a gas engine probably would... I bet this is why the military is using them....
