The new D902-K is a 0.898-litre three-cylinder, water-cooled, four-cycle diesel engine in a vertical configuration. Weighing 72 kg, power output is between 13.4 and 18.5 kW, while torque ranges from 55.2 to 56.1 Nm.

The engine delivers ‘smokeless’ operation and lower emissions due to reduced fuel consumption. The engine meets EPA Tier 4, EU Stage 5 and China 4 (and Cat 3, China’s most stringent regulations).

The TCVR engine is a 1.123-litre model weighing 93 kg. Power output is 18.5 kW and torque is 72.4 Nm. Key features include a larger oil pan, which extends service intervals and reduces maintenance costs.

As the engines are electronically controlled, they can communicate using CAN, allowing remote performance monitoring.
