Speed Triple diesel conversion
A common conversion option is to put an industrial diesel engine (single or twin cylinder) in a modified frame of a Royal Enfield from India.
An option is to use industrial diesel engines or diesel engines from tiny cars. Frames are modified or completely self-constructed. Energy variety begins at 6 hp and goes up to 80 hp.
Sommer Diesel 462
Sommer Motorradtechnik produces the Sommer Diesel 462. The engine is rated at 8 kW (11 PS). The bike reaches leading speed of 65 miles per hour (105 km/h), and achieves 95 miles per US gallon (40 km/l).
Track T-800CDI has an 800 cc 3-cylinder CDI Turbo Intercooler diesel engine, and has a fuel consumption of only 2.5 l/100 km. It has a shaft (cardan) drive, even though ABS braking system and front-wheel drive are each optional. The transmission is a Constantly Variable Transmission (CVT ) with six programmed semi-automatic “gears”. The Track Diesel motorcycle will create 45 hp (34 kW) and 100 Nm (74 ftlbf) torque in amongst 1,800 and 4,500 rpm, delivering a top speed of about 185 km/h (115 mph) and acceleration from 0100 km/h (062 mph) in six.five seconds. The throttle is connected to an electronic fly-by-wire system. The brake lights on the tail will be progressive lights featuring LED technologies.
Dutch E.V.A. Products BV started to sell the diesel motorcycle in 2009, with sales outside the Netherlands anticipated to start in Summer 2010.
Royal Enfield in India was the only manufacturer that has constructed a diesel motorcycle in mass production. A 6.5 hp industrial diesel was installed in the frame of the British-based Royal Enfield. Nevertheless, due to pollution laws this bike is no longer created. It was one particular of the most fuel efficient Bikes in India returning more than 200 mpg (Imperial Gallons). Initially street mechanics had been mounting this engine in utilised Bullets (It is a retro Royal Enfield Bike, with the 350 cc retrofit engine establishing 18 hp). On seeing the accomplishment of these bikes Royal Enfield, themselves, started manufacturing Bullets with the diesel engine and named it as Taurus.
Hayes Diversified Technologies M1030M1
M1030M1 – Diesel Military Motorcycle
After many years engine improvement at Cranfield University, the M1030M1 has entered service. It is produced by Hayes Diversified Technologies, and it primarily based about a modified Kawasaki KLR650. Prime speed is about 90 mph (145 km/h) and fuel consumption is advertised to be 96 mpg (US gal) at 55 mph (89 km/h). M1030M1s have successfully taken component at the British National Rally and the International Speed Trials in Bonneville.
The U.S. Marine Corps bought 440 of the M1030M1 model, beneath the name ‘M1030M1 JP8/Diesel’. The M1030M1E AVTUR/Diesel Military motorcycle is sold to British and European NATO nations. A version produced for the civilian industry, the D650A1 “Bulldog,” was originally slated for release in March 2006, but due to enhanced military demand for the M1030M1, production of the civilian Bulldog has been delayed indefinitely.

Star Twin Motors developed Thunder Star 1200 TDI, which utilized a modified 1.two-litre Volkswagen Lupo diesel engine in a new crankcase with five-speed transmission. The engine was rated 70 PS and 160 Nm torque.
Prototype of the Neander
The Neander utilizes a parallel twin cylinder turbo diesel engine with two meshed counter-rotating crankshafts, which the manufacturer claims to take away engine vibrations. The 1430 cc engine produces nearly 100 hp at 4200 rpm and over 200 Nm of torque at 2600 rpm.
Neander Motors AG planned to generate 99 bikes for 2007.
The Boccardo use a Citron AX 1360cc diesel engine.This motorbike was develop in two or three pieces in 1989
