Yet another idea, would be a Diesel/Electric drive. Use a Diesel engine to run a generator that powers an electric motor coupled to a Subraru differential. With the motor and the differential offset, you could power both the motorcycle and sidecar wheels. Add some batteries and you could have a Diesel/Electric/Hybrid 2WD motorcycle sidecar. I would make a complete frame with the suspension mounted like a car and set the KTM frame onto it. The KTM drive and electrics could even be used. With the KTM frame bolted down onto the sidecar frame and the batteries under the tub, think of the stability.
