Here’s another example of what looks like a joining of two engines to make one. Peregrine Engines has developed a new V4 that looks like two Harley V twins joined at the side though I can’t say for sure, they could be one of the other aftermarket V twins or their own creation. Peregrine Engines is a product line of Wayne R & D, Inc.
Their press release:
The radically new, V4 Engine, is designed to satisfy the ever-increasing demand for more power by adding more cylinders, rather than increasing bore and stroke to the extreme. By utilizing the vast array of Twin-Cam Style engine components available on the market today, we can offer endless combinations, increasing torque and horsepower, not to mention a look that will surely turn heads! An internal drive system that allows for an optional drive ratio of 1:1.19 (overdrive) provides for lower cruising RPM and higher top speed.
Intended for use in custom street bikes and trikes, our four base models to choose from, are the “Falcon-176”, “Falcon-190”, “Falcon-190HO” and “Falcon-206”, ranging in horsepower ratings of 125-hp to well over 200-hp. For those who desire still more power for racing or other demanding applications, engines can be built with off the shelf “Big-Bore” and “Stroker Kits”, to obtain an insane 300-hp or higher.
It will be interesting to see a new bike with this engine installed. I’ll also be looking forward to seeing more details of the internals.
