MotorcyclesThis is the Biggest Motorcycle Engine You Can Buy
Suzuki Rethinks Motorcycle Design
Patent applications show an upside-down engine
There are some things nobody needs in this world, and a motorcycle with a huge 2,458 cc engine is one of them. That’s what powers the new Triumph Rocket 3 TFC (Triumph Factory Custom), which sets a new record for the largest engine in a production motorcycle
- Engine: 2,458 cc in-line triple
- MSRP: $29,000
- Available: December 2019
For context, Genesis makes a sport sedan, the G70, with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine-that’s 2,000cc of displacement. With a turbocharger, that car produces decent power for moving over 3,500 pounds of metal and leather and driver, with a zero-to-60 time of 6.5 seconds. Triumph hasn’t stated the exact weight of the Rocket 3, but it will be lighter than it’s 800-pound predecessor. Whatever that number, paired with 163 ft-lbs of torque, means involuntary burnouts on the 240mm rear tire.
Inside The Kawasaki Centifiugal Motorcycle Supercharger
We talk forced induction with Kawasaki's proprietary motorcycle supercharger There’s no replacement for displacement—unless you have a blower bolted onto the intake, like Kawasaki’s Ninja H2 motorcycles. These Japanese-made powerhouses use a centrifugal supercharger, forcing compressed air into the combustion chamber for more bang. Kawasaki claims 300 hp for the top-of-the-line R version, giving it the title of the world’s most powerful production motorcycle.
Actually, not always. Bikes this overpowered sound intimidating, but like modern supercars, electronics will intervene before catastrophe. The Rocket 3 TFC has multiple riding modes that can keep power in check when roads are wet, anti-lock brakes, and traction control, plus Brembo Stylemas brakes for stopping power. The new Rocket also gets all of Triumph’s modern electronics-a digital dash that syncs to your phone, GoPro connectivity, keyless ignition, LED headlights, cruise control, and USB charging port.
Since the first Rocket 3 came out in 2004, this model has held the superlative of largest production motorcycle engine-low-production custom bikes have gone bigger, but the Rocket has been the biggest you could go buy at a dealership. However, Triumph is only selling 750 examples (with 225 coming to North America) of the new Rocket 3 TFC.
Again, nobody really needs that.
A Turbocharged Twin Could Be The Way to Go For Yamaha.
We spy with our little eye a little turbocharged. The terms “Euro4” and “Euro5” have been part of the motorcycle landscape for a few years now. The stringent European emission standards have started pulling the leash on manufacturers, pushing them to become increasingly creative with their engine designs and technologies. How do you keep the performance while lowering the emissions? There’s a number of ways makers have been able to answer that question; turbochargers has been one of them.
