Motorcycles are worse on the environment than cars? Can it be? A popular TV show, the Discovery Channel’s MythBusters, seems to think so.
The Discovery Channel recently aired a Mythbusters episode which compared the fuel efficiency and pollutant emissions of cars versus motorcycles from the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s. When the data was analyzed, the motorcycles were more fuel efficient but they were much worse polluters for carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxide emissions (but polluted less for carbon dioxide).
To see the MythBusters after-show videos were they explain their methodology and the results, go to http://dsc.discovery.com/videos/mythbusters-bikes-and-bullets/ or check out the full episode at http://www.itunes.com/mythbusters
Although they do seem to have some holes in their theories, the show does provide food for thought. Check it out and let us know what you think.
As always, thank you very much for your time and business!!!
