Are motorcycles better for the environment than cars?

Assume that each vehicle only carries one person, and they each travel the same number of miles. Say, 1000 miles.

Engines: Aluminum block vs. Iron block?


I heard that motorcycles use 2-cycle engines, which causes for worse pollution, but considering motorcycles' better gas mileage, my guess is that motorcycles would still be better than cars. Does anyone know for sure?

Answers:

If you drove the speed of light and turned your headlights on, would they do anything?

Depends on the motorcycle. You can purchase road bikes that have Cat converters on them (BMW for one) - good for the environment and use less fuel than a car carrying only 1 person.

What is the name for the transmissions/engines in the older cars...?


Older bikes, out of tune or 2 strokes - not better for the environment.

Where can i find trucks with bodies made to transport large panel of glass?

some dirt bikes are 2 stroke, but all road bikes are 4 strokers. theyre smaller engines and give off way less emissions

What would be a good small truck for a young girl?

Considering they use less fuel generally, i would think that they are more environmentally friendly. But my friends say that they are worse in the noise pollution field!
I'm a motorcycle person, so I hope they are better. Hope it helps! :)

Why are the words "police" and "ambulance" spelled backwards on the cars and trucks?

no catalytic converters on bikes..The pollute like crazy...2 cycle motorcycles? u know little, 95 % are 4 stroke
