BMWs new threecylinder engine design
Could unusual W3 configuration be for new power cruiser
BMW has submitted patent applications for two different three-cylinder engines using a W3 configuration.
The designs, which squeeze a three-cylinder engine into roughly the same space as a V-twin, have led to speculation on some motorcycle websites that BMW is working on a new cruiser to house the configuration.
According to the patents, both concepts would carry a gear-driven balance shaft to help minimise vibration.
The patent application says: ‘the invention represents an as of yet unknown type of W-3 reciprocating piston internal combustion engine.’
