DA 300, video, may be a one off ?

Ran across this, wonder if it's a one off thing, or something DA is working on ?

Did a bit of googling, seems at one time it was a thing not on the current product line.

WOW that's a engine there, that thing sounds wicked. First reminded me of the Pitts With The 6 Cylinder engine but it was a KOLM Engine.

DA's had a couple cool engines that generated a lot of buzz, but never came to fruition. Wish the 250 supercharged 4 stroke would have made it to production

Can't help you with a 400cc but here's something in the 275cc range that might 'fill your bill'

Just have patience and scroll down a little for the large twin, but go here for a 480cc Wankel version I just found!!!!

JetA, Kerosene, Diesel.

Whatever itís run on itís effectively a diesel cycle engine. Many of the engines they make for military drones have to run on these fuels as the military eliminated gasoline years ago.

The HFE international website has all DA military/commercial engines listed, some interesting stuff.

When I was Roadracing motorcycles, there was a class called Formula USA and it was basically a monster class of bikes...Very few rules including any fuel you want. Team Suzuki were running Methanol and I was Using the Propolene Oxide you mentioned.....man that stuff was liguid dynomite. Made a powerful Bike almost an uncontrollable animal because throttle response was instant...no rolling on the power.
