The displacement of large-displacement bikes is one of the data that always attracts more passionate two-wheel. There are models with 2,300 cc, 1,900 cc, 1,800 cc. But, logically, depending on the number of cylinders, the capacity of each cylinder will be higher or lower. Which bikes are the ones with the largest cylinders? Here you have them
The choice of a motorcycle depends on many factors. Depends on the type you prefer, with a host of variants depending on whether you are urbaner, “burned”, adventurous. Also of conditions such as seat heights, weights … However, there is a factor that many find irresistible: the displacement.
The myth of “big motorbike, walk or not walk” has a special reflection here. Because, as is obvious, more displacement does not directly mean more maximum benefits. In fact, the type of motorcycle in which more representatives find stratospheric cubic centimeters are the custom, a segment far removed from concepts such as km / h or CV. However, if what attracts you most is the response to the low regime, that feeling that an invisible force pushes your back to throw you to the next curve, there is nothing like the big “pouts.”
And what motorcycles have the fattest “pouts”? By total displacement, does not appear the KTM Duke 690 that with its 690 cc is the single cylinder of more cubic capacity and, therefore, with greater unit cylinder than giants like BMW K 1600 GT, Honda Goldwing 1800 or Kawasaki GTR 1400. In this sense, at present, the Yamaha XVS 1900 A Midnight Star officiates as the bike with the largest capacity cylinder, 927 cc, taking the baton of the Kawasaki VN 2000 Classic, a model that the “green” firm no longer markets and that reached 2,053 cc, which meant a two-cylinder structure of 1,026.5 cc each! No model currently exceeds any of its dimensions, neither the diameter (103 mm) nor the career (123 mm).
