About Motorcycle Twin Cylinder Engine
Motorcycle engines are used to power the motorcycles. Two-stroke or four-stroke internal combustion engines (ICE) are used in the motorcycles. The majority of existing motorcycles use internal combustion engines that utilize the energy released by burning fuel to turn a crankshaft. The twin cylinder engine is the most popular type of engine used in motorcycles and automobiles. It consists of two cylinders configured to rotate the crankshaft, and each piston present in the twin cylinder engine revolves the crankshaft at an angle of 360°.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global motorcycle twin cylinder engine market to grow at a CAGR of 16.87% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global motorcycle twin cylinder engine market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the mid-segment motorcycles with engine displacement between 201cc and 500cc and premium motorcycles with engine displacement more than 500cc.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Motorcycle Twin Cylinder Engine Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global motorcycle twin cylinder engine market: Ducati Motor Holding, Harley Davidson, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Triumph Motorcycles, and Yamaha Motor.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: BMW Motorrad, Honda, KTM, and Suzuki.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is suzuki's turbo twin cylinder engine. Suzuki came up with a turbo twin cylinder engine that had the recursion concept of the single-cam parallel-twin cylinder, which was earlier designed in the year 2013. Suzuki developed the near-production engine with this concept, which is similar to the XE7 engine. The single-cam engine designed in the year 2013 had 588cc recursion, 100hp, and 74lbft of torque. The twin engine is likely to be designed with the same capacity with certain specifications but with more power.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is rise in demand for mid-segment and premium bikes. High-powered motorcycles have the largest market share in Europe and the Americas. These motorcycles use twin cylinder engines higher than 200cc. Usually, the sales of low-powered motorcycles are high in emerging markets, such as India, China, and Southeast Asia. High-powered motorcycle accounts only for 2% of the global sales in these developing countries. Therefore, there is scope for motorcycle manufacturers to expand their mid-segment and premium segment motorcycles in these emerging countries. BMW Motorrad entered an alliance with TVS motors to manufacture motorbikes in the range of 200cc-500cc in India.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high costs associated with twin cylinder engines. Twin cylinder engines are known for their engine stability and smooth operation. The inline-twin or V-twin engines provide better fuel efficiency compared with conventional square engines. However, there are complexities in these twin cylinders. These cylinders are known for their compact size, and hence there is no adequate size for heat dissipation, thus requiring liquid cooling. Further, owing to its increased complexity, the V-twin engine is not equipped with the cooling system. To avoid failure of the system, the components such as clearances, fit, and finish should be notched to improve the reliability of the machine.
