I just read an interview in Cycle News where Kenny Roberts says he needs 11-15 million for a year to run two bikes and riders.

Default Re: 1 engine or 2

That would depend on how they're hooked together.



If they crankshafts are in series (as is common for V12 & V16) then it would still be considered one engine. This setup would require both 'banks' to be running together to operate.



If instead, it had parallel outputs, where if one fails, the other engine could still provide power (See KPaul's helicopter example), then it would be considered two seperate engines.

I vote "all of the above."





It'll be more fun that way.

So, for one bike, that sounds about right. Figure a little extra for development for a first year program and some unexpected bumps, and you've got about 8 million.



Hey, WCM runs only one bike, right?

Did you listen to the sound from the "revised firing order" link? I thought it was just plain evil...

Default Re: American-made MotoGP Contender?

Yeah, sure:



Twin cranks are no good in a race bike: unless it's a square four RGV Gamma?



Dual shocks: looked like just the springs to me, with the damper seperate and in/under the swingarm...

In most cases, yes. I'm sure they've come up with some good ideas, but I can't think of any right now.
