Default Re: Military looking at Motopeds

Looks like the 125cc version if they're wanting it to be capable of 45mph or better...
Hopefully somebody will develop a diesel version of the Honda horizontal clone engines that would make it much more appealing to the military, not to mention the torque output would be really nice.
I remember a few years back a company made up a fleet of dirt bikes based on the kawasaki klr650 but equipped with a diesel engine that put out 30hp... I remember reading about these and watching a few videos of the bikes in action and wanting one of those bikes pretty bad until they announced they were only building these for the military and would need be selling them to the public.
