A natural gas bike


Zanella Rx150

A South American motorcycle company, Zanella, will sell a small motorcycle converted for compressed natural gas starting in March.

The 150 cc Rx150 will carry two fuel tanks and a 3.5 litre gasoline tank for times when a supply of natural gas can’t be found.

In Argentina, where Zanella is located, compressed natural gas is one-sixth the cost of gasoline.

The conversion will cost Argentinian customers a few hundred dollars, money they’ll make back in fuel savings.


  1. Not that a 150 would be considered a power house, but any indication of how the NG motor compares to an equivalent gas engine? Would that conversion be applicible to larger bikes?

    How dificult would that conversion be to do and manage in Canada???
