Here are some photos of the first prototype engine developed for the Richmond V8 Sport bike model.
Pictures of the new engine are not availible now, as we prefer to keep it "under wraps" until the model introduction, but here is a short description:  It is a 2800cc (V8 naturally!), water cooled, port injected conventionally aspirated engine, which utilizes DOHC hemi heads with four valves per cylinder.  Horsepower on regular unleaded fuel is conservatively rated 300 at the rear wheel.
