Torque, a real driving force
So why does torque matter? This is a great questions. Diesel engines by compression ignition design create larger amounts of torque than comparable gasoline (spark ignition) engines. Torque is the “force applied to the rotation” and thus is the force that drives the tire and moves the motorcycle. Our first motorcycle, “Success”, consistently put out more torque than horsepower and was able to keep up with traffic and cruise down the highway. With the awesome torque characteristics of the diesel motor it is a great choice for a long distance cruiser that would feel very comfortable in the city.
