You can get a Royal Enfield diesel. They sell them on e-bay for about 3400 & 10bhp
If I was going to ride something with a diesel engine I would want something with a bit more power/torque.

The army messed with a diesel KLR 650 years ago, i had a bit to do with it, and it was rubbish........although i did say at the time, as soon as they link teeeeeny weeny turbos with twin cylinders they will make a decent bike engine for a tourer.....

The idea is good if you want to go for hours without a stop, but you would kill your bum by doing this.....

Like Kev said I would want something with a little more Umph than what they are giving...

There is actually a diesel motorcycle rally every year.

A loyal bunch of enthusiast meet mainly on home made bikes

My friend Rich says a plough would suit the MT-01 >:(

The size of that bike all you need is a cover and it would be a car..... ;D ;D

It's only a little 1700cc.
After all as they say 'there is no replacement for displacement'

Little, add one Litre to mine and I might be close to the size of yours....
