Video: World's first turbo-diesel production bike

Take a look at our MCN-exclusive video of the first turbo-diesel motorcycle in production, the Neander.

Costing £65,000, you probably won’t see many on the roads, so our video is your best chance to see the air-cooled 1340cc parallel twin, which has been in development for seven years.

It’s got so much torque that the only comparable motorcycle is the Triumph Rocket III, which has an engine nearly 1000cc bigger than the Neander.

And you’ll have noticed the chassis and double front fork set-up to cope with the power and weight of the radical Neander.

You can read more on the technical details of the world’s first production turbo-diesel motorcycle, the Neander, in MCN, Wednesday, October 10, 2007.
