Royal Enfield Plans Multi-Fuel Motorcycles

In the recent held New York Motorcycle show, Dr. Venki Padmanabham (CEO, Royal Enfield) said that the company is planning a multi fuel motorcycle that could run on petrol, diesel and kerosene as well.

Well, if Royal Enfield does what it has said then this is going to redefine the motorcycle industry in India and other parts of the world. The bike maker is known for its innovation and this multi fuel motorcycle will be most prominent of lot.
Practically speaking, bikes running on kerosene as a fuel still need lot of research and development because not many motorcycles with such weird ideas have worked. Therefore, Royal Enfield should also try and improve their R&D before taking any further step on developing a multi fuel motorbike.
