Infact, the diesel engine has much of torque and it is low on bhp levels. The fuel economy is to high with figures ranging from 65-70 kmpl for 325 cc lombardini engine.
Also it is the job of big clutch plates attached to the main engine though twin chains and gear ratios to handle the raw power ouput of the diesel unit.
The only problem with the bike initially was that it broke too many clutch cables, fuse the bulbs and jerk the rider. Also the engine oil changes intervals were shorter.
But the engines shown above are much refined and are available only for the export versions mainly to the european markets.
Here the Diesel Bullet Taurus Bike is mainly liked by the Milkmen and small time farmers in its simple avtar for its ability to haul big loads at very low running costs. Dont be amazed to find it doing farming jobs here.
