See if this link helps - V-twin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

When you have a two cylinder engine, the cylinders can be arranged in parallel(seen an RD350?), V-Twin(Harley) or a Boxer(BMW). Each has it's own advantages/disadvantages. A V config can produce more low down torque than other configurations, I believe. Also very peculiar exhaust notes(depending on the angle/firing etc)...Ever heard a Harley?

Awesome effort.

Look at the planning and the small touches that has gone into the job.

This is what I call living one's life to the full. Having a garage and then chipping away at your dreams, one day at a time.

Hope ROYAL ENFIELD does what Bill Gates did to Sabeer Bhatia with HotMail, and picks the engine and builds a bike around it. There are many lions in the Madras factory who would be able to fine tune this incredible piece of machinery to perfection

There would be a big market in India if RE could sell a bullet with such an engine for under 2.5L ... I can't stop dreaming!

BTW : Would it actually be a mammoth task for RE to come out with something like this? IMO it is. I feel RE has not done anything great so far in terms of upgrading their engines apart from adding ES. I would prefer for their old iron lump in favour of the Twin sparks/AVL etc.

Wow!! Kudos Ankit. This is what happens when you follow your passion. That is a piece of art. Hope to see it transplanted onto a body now.

Has Paul Carberry started mass producing his V-Twin engines? The last I chatted with him was some 3-4 years back when he was in Phillipines and was still only selling the engines on order, that is the reason for the high cost.

I wish Ankit could get hold of someone to invest and mass produce his engine. It surely will sell like hot cake with the current trend and purchasing power.

Sell like hotcakes? You must be dreaming, LOL. Such a nice product will not have sales of more than 500 per month and that is on the optimistic side. Do you know the annual sales of RE in total? In good times, they sell about 2000 odd bikes a month.
