TRACK T-800CDI Diesel Rider Report.


I organising Diesel motorcycle for the fun of it and never really gave thought to where it might all Five years later and I’m in a field watching a guy unload not one but of the most cutting edge I’ve ever seen. year has seen me viewing at both the Birmingham and London shows and now, in the middle of the countryside, I am presented with motorbikes I’ve only imagined in my dreams.

Whereas I’m surrounded by many privately conversions, usually based the Royal Enfield, I now find confronted by commercially conceived of a kind not seen before on soil.

After an exchange of Erik of E.V.A Products that he had brought over of the first production machine with the last prototype As far as I could tell the only between these first two was the wiring harness which was visible on the prototype model.

explained that they had the need for a total of fifteen during the final stages of thus making the loom to invisible on the production machine. The bike was a display model without its panelling or tank to the engine layout and drive

Over the next two days I on as the Dutchmen became the centre of at the rally. I watched as they out on the prototype motorcycle to find a each morning and again as returned to answer yet more from an interested public. On I observed them using temperature guns to measure and readings from various parts including the CVT mechanism and the bikes performance in some

It was then and only then I started to get a feel for just E.V.A. were all about. To see dedication to their product, thoroughness, imparted to me a real of trust in the bike. It’s at moments like this you actually observe Erik’s of dedication to his motorcycle that you the work and effort that man is putting into every of the build.

If he is to compete successfully the ‘big boys’ everything has to be as he requires it. And if his aim is to create a new class of then his machine has to be different.

so easy for some people to up, twist the throttle, go home an later and write a shallow of such a motorcycle. It’s more satisfying to spend a few in a field with the guys who created such a machine scratch and get a feel for just they are trying to achieve.

Indeed we are told that motorcycle is targeted squarely at BMW and that E.V.A. has already in getting much interest this sector. Up to 75% of orders are said to be existing owners of the Marque.

Next up came my to actually ride the machine.

As I sat on the Erik, looking a little serious than usual, the starting procedure. A handlebar button was flipped and the machine into life. The sound greeted one’s ears was all you’d expect of a modern rail diesel.

As I had been to expect, there was no knock, or discernable smell but then hours had gone into up the ECU for just that purpose. the purring of a well tuned, sized diesel triple upon my ears and it sounded healthy to me. Things were promising!

I later learned this engine has been set up longevity in mind, the ECU programmed to the engine last anything up to miles.

With no clutch or shifter in evidence I looked to the side of the machine and to the brakes and Right from the off I had trouble my normal biker instincts. I was that the CVT would engage and the would move off if the throttle was and even then I couldn’t but give it the merest of blips. enough I felt a slight motion from the bike it subsided.

Part of me wanted to hear engine rev up but that was something I’d experience by taking the bike the road.

Erik threw his leg a 1985 Honda XL600L I did the same to the Track T-800CDI. not ridden anything like before I was (understandably I think) a apprehensive, especially with the creator watching my every

With no traffic and only a few standing outside the Bat Ball I opened the throttle and moved the forward to the end of the Pub’s access The way being clear I then her up and rode the 100 yards or so up to the main T junction and experienced the CVT really its thing for the first time. The two that struck me straight way the nature of how the CVT automatically adjusted to find the right torque depending on where I had the throttle and how different this made the sound from a ‘normal’ non motorcycle.

Once at the top of the road I left up the B2133 towards and opened her up. Again the engine instantly and the revs rose and back as the CVT did its thing and transferred the down to the rear wheel via the shaft. The bike accelerated from the Honda at a comfortable of knots while the CVT coped with the torquey diesel it was coupled to.

As I slowly became accustomed to the kind of power delivery and it really hit home to me just how this motorcycle was from else that had gone it. Here I was, astride, a big, high end trailie, engine was injecting fuel times per cycle while its mounted exhaust disclosed the being done by the constantly transmission hitherto only on machines of a totally different

It was all a bit overwhelming really but not so much so I was distracted from seeing a down car that materialised out of as I leant the bike into a left-hander. Swinging the machine out and over the centre reservation I round the obstacle effortlessly. and well balanced the T-800 was.

And who’ve thought with a diesel engine in the frame?

As I wiggled the bike side to side, braked and and made sure I hadn’t my riding partner — the behind was Japanese – I began to get a feel for what was between my and who it was aimed at. It a world where motorcycles still turn in MPG figures the E.V.A. bike is to be in a different league altogether.

It claims anything up to a refreshing and I can quite believe it having other oil fuelled machines. The delivers 45BHP and 78lb-ft of and the bike comes with a CVT designed to make best use of power. Saying that, the CVT maybe a hard sell to bikers used to a shifter but the backing of a major corporation easy to see why E.V.A. chosen the efficient drive system from the off.

This is an element I’ve tried not to sight of in reviewing this It may not be to every ones liking but a will come when will come to see the advantages of a drive.

Anyone looking for a anything like what currently ride really contemplate the T-800. The only it has in common with motorcycles of is its handling and the fact that it has two Every element of this has been thought through to a certain type of performance as far as the average knee slider is it’s not the kind of performance would want.

No, this is a built not only for the more rider but for another age.

Finally, one word keeps up in my mind no matter what of this machine I contemplate. word is sophistication. The workmanship is as as you’ll get anywhere and the styling is sharp.

The engine is purposefully and it’s coupled with a and efficient drive. If someone doesn’t want this then I’ll be very indeed. The bottom line is there is more energy up in a litre of diesel than in the amount of petrol.

Like you’ve just got to be smart to get at it, that’s all.

Unlike else on the road the Track does this and in doing so it likely to lay claim to being the production motorcycle of a new age.

So, other manufacturers be worried? should certainly be watching!
