Never heard of it, but then there's a lot of stuff I never heard of. A friend and I were discussing the possibilities of a diesel moped the other day, and we thought it sounded like a cool idea! I would also be interested to know about this machine. I bet it's one rare duck!

Small engine diesel bikes are really popular in parts of Asia. A friend of mine went over there and said that there was a pall of thick diesel smoke over the cities from mopeds and small motorcycles.

Maybe popular because in a pinch, you can cut diesel fuel with cooking oil and other non-fuel oils. Runs dirty as hell, though.
