Diesel bike by Hero

Every one knows hero and Honda has split. The joint venture which gave India the slogan “fill it shut it forget it” is no more. Hero the Indian partner will have the right to sell Hero Honda bikes till 2013. After the split the two companies are in a race to prove who is the better. Honda as we all know with its products like Unicorn and Activa is a head of Hero. Hero on the other hand does not a product to boast on.

Now hero is trying a new strategy, seeing the demand for diesel cars(costlier than the petrol counterparts) hero is planning to launch a diesel bike. A Chennai based indo us company is expected to produce the engine for them.Its not clear now whether an mechanical injector based engine or CRDI Diesel Engine be used.The chances of a CRDI is higher because of the emission and performance needs.The engine will be 4 stroke which produce a power of 30 BHP(assuming). A CRDI disel car give us a mileage of about 18 to km. Now imagine what would be the efficiency of this engine. We know the crude diesel engine RE produced using the technology of the 70s give us a mileage of abt 70 to 80.km. No doubt is this bike is launched it will be a great success(of course if the engine does not have any flaws).
