Geek Speak: Multi-Cylinder Bikes & How They Affect Performance

In this episode of Geek Speak, we talk about the different types of cylinders in motorcycle engines and how they affect the performance. From commuter motorcycles like the Honda CB Unicorn and the Hero Passion Pro, which come with a single cylinder to the bulky 1,200cc BMW G1200 GS, which comes with a Boxer engine that’s a horizontally opposed twin.

We talk about how the number of cylinders affects a machine’s performance and also how the shape of the engine plays a vital role in the bike’s output.
