Two cylinders can be tuned to more horsepower than an tweaked single cylinder of displacement—one of the reasons is that a weight crankshaft can be used. A four-… requires significant to assist the motor through the … cycles between sequences.

With a twin, the motor’s mass requirements are reduced, as the cylinder moves the momentum The need for a counterbalancer is also as the opposing cylinder offsets the The lack of a counterbalancer reduces drag and saves weight.
