Europe's love affair with all things diesel continues with the release of the Dutch-built Trackstar T-800CDI motorcycle. It uses the same DaimlerChrysler 800cc 3-cylinder diesel engine found in the Smart fortwo. The Trackstar is the first commercially available diesel motorcycle, and it can run on 100 percent pure plant oil or different modes of diesel fuel. Officials are hoping to sell up to 500 units over the next two years. Other diesel bikes have been used by the military or are scarce in supply.
