Just the other day we reminded you of a diesel motorcycle currently being built for military purposes, and before that we shared information on the Neander Motors' machine with its dual counter-rotating crankshafts.

Along they way, they've added fuel injection and a turbocharger for good measure. If produced, the Harley-diesel could do 100 miles per hour and return 80 miles per gallon. Potential customers for this proposed vehicle include Harley-Davidson themselves as well as the military ... oh yeah, and this writer.
