Do many ( or any) of the newer motorcycles other than Suzuki use this design engineering Trait ?
It is amazing that they are able to squeeze allmost 70 h.p from a 650 cc 2 cylinder engine ( in my case )
I have seen Single Cylinder Briggs and Stratton engines used in Junior dragsters Hopped up to the point
they run Alcohol /methanol and turn more than 8000 rpm. and 50 h.p And these are just run of the mill
5 h.p go kart engines that have been extensively modified. You have to give these engineers a lot of credit for
knowing how to make power in a small package. Motorcycle engineers just do it with a warranty in mind.
