For those who love the sounds of old GP and other racing bikes such as this one, Phil Read sells a CD, "The Superior Sound of Classic Racing Bikes." At least, I guess he still sells it, out of England. I've listened to it over and over. It includes single, twin, 4, 5(!), and 6 cylinder bikes 250cc and under. Regarding dividing a given displacement into multiple tiny cylinders, this achieves high rpm and corresponding horsepower. Torque is sacrificed. Think Harley Davidson, the opposite.
Hope Noah doesn't feel his thread hijacked. Philip Island is today, Motegi is next weekend!
