That's pretty cool.  I remember quite a few years ago a KLR650 was converted to diesel for military use.  I think this didn't go very far, as the diesel conversion really upped the weight of the bike.  And the cost was very high.  This one looks viable.

I've toyed with the idea of an electric dirt bike to sneak up on the local critters.  Only one problem, bears.
