Just imagine this little 2.0 liter monster in a bike. They mention Harley in the article saying it sounds like a 3 cylinder Harley. 200 hp per cylinder.... jeez

Although manufactures have been playing with pneumatic / solenoid actuated valves for awhile now I think this is a first for production.  Kind of cool that with the turbos its possible to run the engine in 2 stroke mode up to 3k rpm's.  The whole package is a nice blend of available technologies & will be interesting to see how reliable it turns out to be.  Nice read thanks for posting

Ford came out with this little 999cc engine 5 or six years ago. I am just fascinated by tiny engines.
