The Hayes bike, based on the new military model,
is supposed to be available in March.

http://www.dieselmotorcycles.com/

102mpg 600 mile range at 55mph.

There have been a few diesel bikes:

What I find more fascinating, is the Hydrogen bike.
100 miles on a tankful.
They talk about also offering a Hydrogen generator the size of a shoebox
that can make a tankful for 25 cents.

It all sounds unlikely to me though. At least in this decade.
