Hydrogen powered Enfield
I have no information apart from what you can see in the video and what one can find here. I wish them good luck. They clearly have been very careful and resourceful and the project looks very neat. Alas, as a physicist I have to point out that barring some sort of miracle this makes no sense: one cannot take electricity produced by the Enfield generator, turn it into hydrogen, feed it back into the engine and gain efficiency. But perhaps with their experience one can in the future think of an Enfield running entirely on hydrogen adsorbed on a metallic substrate or some other technology. It is great that they are moving things forward! I'd say hail to these visionaries! Incidentally, this is a good place to point out that the Indian market sees the first hybrid motorcycle hit the streets!
