Many Engines are used in different types.
- Inline line
- Flat-four (or) Flat-six.
First single cylinder:
- The most commonly used on motorcycles because it’s cheap to produce and easily fix and maintain.
- The piston does all the hard work here, but an inherently unbalanced system and especially the large cubic capacities.
- So it’s optimal for small displacement motors, as it keeps the reciprocating mass (piston) at low, and is seen regularly on budget-friendly motorcycles like the Bajaj Discover 125, Honda CB Hornet 160R and the Suzuki Gixxer.
- High torque produced at low revs.
- Much cost-effective.
- Sharp and fast according to throttle.
- Therefore light weighted sports bikes are made with single-cylinder engines.
- A lot of vibration.
- To reduce vibration and keep that in control extra part like balance and
- Difficult balancing.
- Parallel Twin engines or inline Two engines have an extra cylinder at disposal.
- The two cylinders are placed parallel to each other and share on one cylinder block.
- These types of engine construction are on entry-level sportbikes such as the BMW F 850 GS, Kawasaki Ninja 300, and Yamaha R3.
- So they offer smother and power delivery to compare a V-twin.
- High performance.
- Good balance.
- High Vibration Problem
- The inline twin setup engine needs a different fueling system and separate ignition system for both the cylinders
