Diesel or Petrol – Which is Better?


Diesel Engines give out more small particulate than (petrol) gasoline engines, however modern diesel engines are fitted with particulate filters to reduce emission pollution.

Petrol (gasoline) engines produce more CO2 emissions which is said to cause climate change.

Diesel engines emit more nitrogen dioxide than petrol engines which can cause smog, acid rain and respiratory problems.

So diesels are worse for the health of people and petrols are worse for the health of the planet.

So given that both engines have advantages and disadvantages, the question is, have diesel engines been fitted to power motorcycles?. Yes they have.

Let’s take a look at a few and have a listen to how they sound
