    One step forward, three steps back. Pushrods? Air-cooling? Forget it.

    Air/oil cooled, actually—same as boxers prior to the waterheads. It may not be an engine or a bike that would entice me into a purchase, but I support it’s development and marketing if for no other reason than profits from this bike will help subsidize production of other models that hold more appeal to me personally. I like any product that helps Motorrad stay in business and producing their products that I am most fond of.

    Best,

    Not blurred for me and it had some facts I had not read before.

    HP and torque figures were given
    It's dual plugged
    Two cams, one for each cylinder
    Even though the compression ratio is fairly low, 9.6:1, it requires 91 to 93 AKI fuel. I wonder if 91 to 93 is correct?
