EFFICIENCY BY DESIGN
Combustion efficiency is a measure of how completely an engine burns its fuel.
Better combustion efficiency can increase power and torque output across the rpm range; improve throttle response, acceleration and fuel mileage; and reduce emissions.
Mechanical efficiency is a measure of how much of the power and torque produced by an engine actually reaches the rear wheel.
Reducing mechanical losses by minimizing internal engine friction, reducing the weight of reciprocating internal parts and relieving crankcase pressure can increase mechanical efficiency, putting more of an engine’s output to use actually moving and accelerating the motorcycle and also improving fuel mileage and reducing emissions.
