Design and Initial Development of a High Specific Output 500 CC Single-Cylinder, Two-Stroke, Racing Motorcycle Engine 710082

This paper describes the initial investigation and design of a lightweight racing motorcycle with a single-cylinder 2-stroke engine, capable of producing 60 bhp. The data discussed here pertain to the gas dynamic and mechanical parts and functions of the cycle. Designs of the various components are described and reports of tests on road and test beds verify the viability of this concept of a high specific output and large displacement cylinder for a lightweight, air-cooled motorcycle engine.
