Does that say TDI on it? As in it's a turbo diesel?

That thing must have F&*k loads of torque!!

Focus is the ability to believe in your goal even as your path twists and turns.

Looks trick, love it.
Here's a couple articles with more info on it I looked up.
gizmag
wiki on the history of diesel bikes
the brochure
Quote:
So, according to Jeroen, the output is 95bhp and 162 foot pounds in a race setting with fuel consumption at 85 miles per gallon. Reducing power to 70bhp and 118 foot pounds yields 212 miles per gallon! (Correction, 117 mpg. Thanks, Nick!)
questions to the makers

I like bikes that burp black smoke and the sound of it with an open muffler would be noice!

Yes, then the next time one of the scuds that pulls up in an oversized Turbo Diesel truck and smokes me out, I could return the favor.
117 MPG sounds fantastic these days. w00t!
I did rip thos text for those that may be wondering...
"Thunder Star 1200 Diesel by Star Twin, a company over in Holland, has designed and built the Thunder Star 1200 TDI Sportbike. This is a 1200cc, three cylinder turbocharged direct injection diesel. They started with a 3 cylinder diesel engine from the VW Lupo, redesigned numerous parts using SolidWorks 3D computer modeling software, created patterns from those models and had them cast in aluminum. They use an FJ1200 5 speed gearbox. The frame is their own design.

Power output begins at 80bhp and 165 foot pounds of torque, BUT, a bit of remapping of the engine controls increases this to 120bhp and 250 foot pounds at 5500rpm! The bike weighs 450 pounds. You do the math, by my calculations that results in an ear to ear grin. The bike is not to the production stage yet and they are exploring lots of different configurations, touring, commuter, etc."

amen to power and fuel economy!

Hey, if it's good enough for Audi's F1 cars, it's good enough for a superbike

Audi doesn't compete in F1 and F1 rules don't allow for a diesel engine. Your thinking of the prototype Le Mans cars...
