The two-cylinder V-engine it has always had its supporters and detractors, I think more of the former. In the past he was doomed to propel heavy custom with little development. Those were times when the four-cylinder inline of the first Japanese models landed in Europe ruled. Read Honda CB750Four. Nowadays that has changed and in addition to having good updated bicycles with sufficient performance, we have sporty cut models with medium displacement that have made good use of this type of motorization.
It is an engine that is giving a lot of itself on the track With national championships in many European countries, Italy and France can give a good account of it with their Twins cups. There are trainers and workshops that focus on these engines to build real efficient sports cars on the circuit with very high performances. Pepo Rosell is a good example of this with his good work playing Ducati but we are going to go to a town near Torino, (Italy), to see what Ezio Ros has in his workshop.
Specifically up to the town of Leinì, on Strada Lombardone 212 to be more exact. In 2000, a Suzuki TL1000 accident fell into the hands of Ezio Ros. He was crying out for a second chance and prepared a circuit bike from the remains. The powerful two-cylinder would be more than enough on the track but at the mercy of the chassis, the weight was the enemy to beat.
Ezio Ros concluded that chassis and weight were the cornerstones a good preparation for the circuit if we adhere to the regulations of Italian SuperTwin races. A motorcycle drivable like a 250cc GP but with a lot of torque that the possibility of opening gas coming out of a curve at just over 5000rpm. And this is where the engine of the Suzuki SV 650 comes into play.
The road so far has been long but it has been worth it. From that idea with the Suzuki TL 1000 and the first races with the Suzuki sv 650 in which he could not get to classify, until the evolution of his motorcycle today. Going through the 2005 season in which he took the SuperTwin championship title. The work of the latest evolution raises the displacement to 744 cc from which it extracts a good 104CV.
One of the main characteristics of this motorcycle is the handcrafted tube chassis, three possibilities of rear swingarm, together with a preparation of part of the cycle at the level of suspensions and brakes. For the engine, Ezio Ros has prepared up to five engine boost kits. It also manufactures kits set footpegs handcrafted and modify suspensions.
A artisan work worthy of admiration and many years behind him. Everything can be seen on two web pages. A more personal with all the history of the motorcycle and the company. Another more commercial where to buy preparation kits and other types of parts not only for your motorcycles but also for other models on the market.
