Everyone goes slow in the slow turns...

Not everyone goes fast in the fast turns.

Very interesting, but seems like it should get more than 16.67 HP per cylinder.

150hp @ 3600rpm isn't bad

8.5 compression ratio

uses 7.1 gallons of 100LL per hour

Push your limits until you crash.. then back off just a bit.
Determination and tactics will overcome advanced equipment and a lackluster desire.

Totally practical. I laughed when he tried to turn around in the parking lot. Looked like he was going to drag a peg going straight!

Please note there is no "high side" on this bike.
It are round. It will roll many times.
Worse, if high sided in the direction of engine rotation,
it might never stop...

I wonder if the bike has a tendency to counter-rotate. The engine mounted on
anything else would have a wide, stable stance. The bike, not so much.

yup. BMW and Guzzi will rock when shifting.
Actually have to be careful shifting in corners.
But only if being aggressive.

Iirc, Harley engines are just radial engines with some cylinders missing, 16 or 17 hp per cylinder seems about right, lol

I like this design a little better, seems more practical especially with the primary drive belt positioning

We the willing, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, with so little, for so long, we are now qualified to do anything, with nothing.

^^ 7 cylinder radial engine. Both 7 cylinder and 9 cylinder were popular for overall size.

The Wasp engine was everywhere with 9 cylinders, and double that with two banks of 18 total.

F4U Corsair and F4 Hellcat both used the Double Wasp 18 cylinder engine.

 

Single banks were 5, 7, 9, etc. It has to be an odd number in each cylinder bank to work.

Also, don't forget that bike engines displacement was in cc's. The old school aircraft engines are in cubic inches. Much larger cylinders and power output.
