ABSTRACT

Eco-systems currently being implemented all around the world. The Euro emission control is introduced on the same basis, to decrease pollution of the environment and make the vehicles more eco-friendly. Idea is on the same basis of developing an eco-bike engine model which will use its exhaust emissions to pre-heat its air-fuel mixture with the help of a heat exchanger, that will increase the inlet mixture temperature and vaporize any water content so that better and full combustion occurs which will emit less no. of harmful emissions than a standard running motorbike.
