God! I love listening to race motors!



My favorites include: Columbo or Lampredi designed Ferrari V-12s, all Ferrari Flat 12s, Honda inline five and inline six motorcycles, the Guzzi V-8, well tuned V-Maxes with pipes, 180 degree Honda V-Fours with pipes, multi cylinder GP 2-strokes, the BMW Mclaren F-1 roadcar, Four Rotor Mazdas, Audi Sport inline 5s, Naturally aspirated air-cooled Porsche flat sixes and Honda's late 80s V-10 F-1 motors.

swing arms are bigger on one side because of torque. I think most manufacturers dont bother because, although it would save weight, it is more costly to make. the 929RR has a solid side and a braced side on its swing arms.

Default air intakes on tail section

It looks like there are air intakes on the tail section to either side of the bum stop pad behind the seat. Dunno if this means anything as it could be cosmetic or cooling for the ECU brain box.

The swingarm appears smaller on the left hand side because of the chain passing through it. The exterior dimensions are usually the same. The solid side is strong due to being solid, so it can be light, but the other side requires extra bracing due to the hole causing stress concentrations.

I heard this too, but at a displacement of approx 940cc. Honda has years of data for 750cc x 4 cylinders, so if you add a fifth of the same displacement, you get 937.5cc. Basically it's a RC45 motor with an extra cylinder. They spent thousands of man hours on bore/stroke for the 750cc motor, so they can use this data rather than starting over with minorly larger cylinder bores/strokes.

Good point. Since the RC45 made 191hp at 15,250, this motor should make almost 240hp. well above what any tire can withstand.



Maybe I was wrong. 4 stroke GP might not be insanely expensive. It'll still be more than 2 strokers, but maybe not F1-like.
