This performance became possible due to the innovative technical device: crankpins in a motorcycle are separated by 90 degrees, and uneven firing interval 270 º - 180 º - 90 º - 180 º improves data of the linear characteristic of cylinder filling. In general, it feels like the rear wheel and the throttle are directly linked.
