    Only production diesel engined motorcycle iv ever seen is the royal Enfield. Maybe if Honda or Yamaha took an interest it could be more refined for a better ride, there would certainly be money to be made for a bike like that in India and if it was good enough even in the west.

    I saw a concept diesel engined scooter in India that doubled as an electric generator but I'm guessing that never saw production as I can't find anything more on that apart from that one concept page and a picture of a prototype.
