Yes there were motor cycles like royal enfield 350cc with diesel engines.


But diesel engines are powerful hence produce more vibration and make a hell for bikers to ride.Also some diesel bikes had pollution norms violations.

Also we cannot completely state that diesel bikes are not good because there are companies like here with concepts for bikes and even diesel scooters!
