Maybe not the fastest bike in the world, but neither is my gasoline KLR, that is nothing new....but to grow my own fuel (biodiesel) now that is interesting....http://www.motorcycle.com/manufacturer/2011-altius-scimitar-review-90964.html
Doesnt sound like its quite up to par yet.
If the entire bike is ~$3900 US, why not try to import the bike.... I am interested in diesel motor but the price of conversion would be out of my budget range....I'm curious... How many of you would be interested in an Altius Scimitar engine and fuel system swap if the cost was around $2500? All work performed in the US and we would import the parts from India.
