This engine is designed to maximize riding fun in the real world. Downdraft style combustion chamber features 4-valves per cylinder, a straight intake path into the combustion chamber and an 11.2:1 compression ratio for excellent power output. Four valves per cylinder enhances the low to midrange torque. Intake valves are 26 mm in diameter and exhaust valves are 22.5 mm. The valve angle is set at 24.75 degrees (intake = 12 degrees & exhaust = 12.75 degrees) to keep the combustion chamber compact.
