Old Bike Australasia: Ariel Square Four – The Squariel – Shannons Club

Old Bike Australasia: Ariel Square Four – The Squariel Story and photos . Jim Scaysbrook The story of the Ariel Square Four must start with the young Edward Turner, who in time, would rise to become the most powerful figure in the British motorcycle industry. But it was a different situation in the mid 1920s, when young Turner was a struggling engineer in London, cobbling together a 350 cc overhead camshaft-engined motorcycle of his own design in a tiny workshop. He had dreams (and designs) of producing a four-cylinder machine, but this was way beyond his modest means, and although he had hawked the concept around the trade, there were no takers. Then, during a visit to Birmingham with ...

Little Big V-Twins Comparison Test – Motorcycle Cruiser Magazine

Little Big V-Twins: Harley-Davidson Fat Boy, Kawasaki Vulcan 1600 Classic, Suzuki Marauder 1600 and Victory Kingpin Motorcycle Comparison Test Last year these four motorcycles would have been part of our big-twins comparison. Then the Kawasaki Vulcan 2000 upset the order of things. All by itself it created a mega-twin class into which we swept the other oversized maxi-Vs, the Honda VTX1800 and the Yamaha Road Star 1700. That new uber-twin class narrowed the number of bikes eligible for this comparison, which we limited to V-twin-powered straight cruisers with displacements from 1400cc to 1600cc. Even so, we could have included more than 20 models, too many to make a focused comparison. The ...

Four Stroke Fever WORDS + PHOTOS: Kevin Hipp Roland Sands and Bell helmets held a premiere showing of their new short film Four Stroke Fever in mid-July at the Roland Sands Design headquarters in Los Alimitos, California. RSD opened their doors to the shop, the store, and the back lot where the film premiere took place and most of the people hung out. The store was open to meander through and purchase RSD clothing and motorcycle parts.

Top fours: 4. Ariel Square Four-News & Reviews-Motorcycle Trader

20 Feb 2013 | Ian Falloon nominates the greratest of all time Before World War II, in-line fours with the engine lengthwise were considered unwieldy, and across-the-frame fours too wide. Then one day in late 1928, a London motorcycle dealer, Edward Turner, sketched on the back of a cigarette packet the idea of two parallel-twins, two by two. Turner made a trip to the Midlands trying to sell the idea and it was Ariel that provided Turner with the resources to see his idea to fruition. The first square-four (popularly called the ‘Squariel’) appeared in 1931 and was a single overhead camshaft 500. The basic layout of cylinders at the corners of a square with two 180-degree crankshafts geared ...

As a project leader you’ve been slaving night and day for the better part of two years on what was then internally known as N600. It is going to be a groundbreaking road-burner that will become the most important motorcycle in the world, with a contemporary mass-production first of an air-cooled, DOHC, 750cc inline-four. Testing is all but ...

The company also announced an ABS option for the mighty ZX-14R. First off, the ZX-6R, which receives a 2.6mm increase in stroke to bring displacement to an actual 636cc. According to Kawasaki, the engine benefits from this revised bore/stroke ratio—bore remains 67mm while stroke grows to 45.1mm—to provide better low-end and midrange torque. A raft of cylinder-head modifications join the stroke increase: Intake and exhaust ports ...

Kawasaki Z Series

Kawasaki Z Series As Japanese motorcycle manufacturers moved away from large capacity 2-strokes. their focus moved towards large capacity 4 cylinder 4-strokes. driven by the need to meet ever stringent emission standards. Honda, long a stalwart of 4-stroke engines, started the trend with their CB750 four which they introduced in 1969 (much to the chagrin of the Kawasaki management). Long considered leaders in street bike performance with their triple cylinder 2-strokes, Kawasaki came to the market with a new 4 cylinder 4-stroke in 1972. But this new bike was not as originally planned, a 750-cc engined machine, it was a 900-cc variant. The new Superbike was an instant success. Going back to ...
