Default Re: Death of the V-Twin in Road Racing

What ? Play along with the trolling ? I think his opinion is that you're an idiot, I also think he's right.

So what are these other "dead engine configurations" of which you speak ?

About the only ones that could possibly fit that bill are the square 4 (last seen on the road in the Suzuki RG500 in the late 80's early 90's) and I guess the rotary is probably a dead config for a bike engine.

There'll always be twins (V and parallel) and singles and V4s to go along with the parallel 4s. Every engine configuration has it's strengths and weaknesses, different niche markets along with different race rules or road legality laws will determine which ones hit the track or road as being the optimum config
