Hey I just got my Sport Rider Mag and there was this interesting article on page 18 that i felt i had to share.

Its called the Star Twin Thunder Star 1200 3 cylinder TDI Deisel Sportbike. It makes 120hp and 250lb/tq.. It only weighes 450lbs wet. Has all the bells and whistles, carbon fiber wheels, kevlar fairings, inverted fork and twin six poston radial mount PFM brake calipers. Kevlar brake lines, and a ducati swingarm. And get this, It gets 150mpg. Its a prototype right now but they are looking to put this into production.

Imagine how wierd the engine will sound, and how fast it will be. It makes all that power at 5500rpm which is insane. Whatta u guys think of it.... I'll try to find pics of it.

And by the way...its 80hp and 165lbs of torque. But if the electronics are remapped, then we get the 120hp and 250 torque. :dthumb:

The motor looks unusual but at 150 mpg, i wouldnt complain. Just imagine what you could do on 150 mpg! 150! And SCARY torque. :eek:
