Our favourite Ps-era pow­er­plants

Jim Moore Ed­i­tor

My favourite 2T mo­tor is the 350LC. I love the kick in the pants as it comes on pipe. Four-stroke, it’s be­tween the Honda V4 and Ducati 748. Both sound great, go great, and are great. [email protected] prac­ti­cal­sports­bikesmag.co.uk

Damian Smith Art Ed­i­tor

I like a big in­line-four. The fre­netic surge of speed is so much more in­tense than with a vee mo­tor. For me, the early Fire­blades al­ways left a big im­pres­sion. So yeah, that’s my favourite. [email protected] prac­ti­cal­sports­bikesmag.co.uk

Mark Gra­ham Pro­duc­tion Ed­i­tor

There’s only one en­gine in this game – num­ber one in a field of one – the Kawasaki two-stroke triple. Big or small, road or race, noth­ing in the world sounds like quite like it – or goes like it. Mag­i­cal thing. mark.gra­[email protected] prac­ti­cal­sports­bikesmag.co.uk

Alan See­ley Tech­ni­cal Ed­i­tor

Ducati 851/888 and the 916 se­ries that grew out of it are my favourite four-strokes. When it comes to two-strokes it has to be the TZR/TDR250 – mini may­hem – just twist for chaos . alan.see­[email protected] prac­ti­cal­sports­bikesmag.co.uk

Gary Hurd Tech­ni­cal Con­sul­tant

You need to ask? Suzuki’s 16v 1100, ob­vi­ously. They’re great to build, tough as old boots, can be mas­sively tuned, and they still make me grin like an id­iot when­ever I ride them. psports­[email protected]­me­dia. co.uk
