The effect of engine spin direction on the dynamics of powered two wheelers is investigated in terms of steady-state points (equilibria), vibration modes (stability), manoeuvre time (performance/manoeuvrability) and handling. The goal is to assess and quantify the advantage sometimes claimed for the ‘counter-rotating’ engine configuration, where the engine spins in the opposite direction with respect to wheels, against the ‘conventional’ configuration, where the engine spins in the same direction of wheels.

Abstract

The effect of engine spin direction on the dynamics of powered two wheelers is investigated in terms of steady-state points (equilibria), vibration modes (stability), manoeuvre time (performance/manoeuvrability) and handling. The goal is to assess and quantify the advantage sometimes claimed for the ‘counter-rotating’ engine configuration, where the engine spins in the opposite direction with respect to wheels, against the ‘conventional’ configuration, where the engine spins in the same direction of wheels.
