I dont have a lot of detail on these photos, but it got my mind reeling…Is the market ready for a 2-stroke triple-cylinder again? Take a look at the photos, and we’ll regroup for a dream session.
The following photos were emailed to me with message, “Tip on a cool sled. Tim Marklund from Sweden triple 1335cc. 1 1/2 800cc welded to a triple 90mm bigbore.”
Hopefully the photos sparked your triple interest and you’re ready to dream a bit…
Let’s focus, and assume this triple would be for a Trail-only chassis. And lets get other what-ifs out of the way…We’ll assume it meets emissions, all three pipes can fit under compact modern bodywork, it falls into a proper weight range and it cranks out enough big bore horsepower to be considered a true panty dropper…
Is the market ready for a triple 2-stroke?
Would AC need to even bother with a me-too 850?
It could be interesting to have a line of C-TEC2 Engines in Single-Cylinder (400cc), Twin-Cylinder (600cc & 800cc) and Triple-Cylinder (1XXXcc)
Return of the ZRT, or No?
