Track T-800CDI 100 MPG Diesel Motorcycle from Holland
Batman's Next Ride?I'm not quite sure what to think about the Track T-800CDI diesel motorcycle made by E.V.A. Products BV Holland. It has some impressive specs: 0 to 100 kph (0 to 62 mph) in just 3.75 seconds, a CVT transmission (with 6 programmed "gears"), and an average of about 100 MPG (US) at 90 kph (56 mph). And since the engine is a 800 cc inline 3-cylinder diesel, there's the possibility of using biodiesel to further reduce well-to-wheels CO2 emissions (especially if its sourced from waste cooking oil or algae).
But since it's a diesel, there could also be problem with smog-forming emissions. Unfortunately, there's not much information about that on the official website. We found secondary sources that said that the engine was Euro 4, and even that it was the same Daimler engine used in the diesel Smart Fortwo, but we're not 100% sure of that info (anyone knows? please leave a comment).
Update: This bike currently costs 17,500 euro according to this page of the Dutch version of the website.
