PostSubject: Diesel Bike On Sale Next Year   Thu 5 May - 10:05

Taken from Adventure Bike Rider forum.

Bombay Mix - Deisel Adventure Bike from India

Tata Veteran BVR Subbu was the man entrusted with building the Hyundai brand in India . And that's what he did, leaving Hyundai as
the second largest car maker in India. Now, Subbu has focused his ambitions on a diesel engine manufacturing unit in Chennai called Altius Automotive Technologies.

Altius is partnered by Hayes Diversified Technologies, an American firm engaged in supply of military vehicles and equipment principally to the US Army.
Hayes also was instrumental in fitting a 670cc diesel/multifuel engine onto the Kawasaki KLR650′s chassis to come up with the HDT Diesel Motorcycle for the US Army - the army wanted a single fuel to work across its vehicle range.

And that's the background to the motorcycle were talking about here, the Altius Scimitar 670 Diesel, which is set to launch in India in 2012.
What you get is essentially the enduro frame of a Kawasaki KLR650 mated to a 670cc multifuel diesel engine designed by HDT.





It's an indirect diesel engine hooked up to a five speed manual gearbox, the engine is slow revving but good for about 33 Bhp and the torque output is 54 Nm.
Altius claims to achieve 96mpg at a constant 56mph giving a potential tank range of 408 miles. The price of the Altius Scimitar 670 is set to be around 2400.
