Bad Dog Cycles pistons are large enough to eat your sunday dinner off
CHECK out the size of the pistons for Bad Dog Cycles prototype 3500cc V-Twin monster.
The Bad Dog 215 is a fuel-injected, sixty-degree air-and-oil-cooled 4-valve V-Twin, displacing 3500cc. With the engine expected to develop around 300ftlb of torque at 5000rpm and 300hp at 6000rpm.
The engine has an anticipated price of $40,000 (£26,000) and then you've got to build a bike around that. We'd rather spend our money on a Desmosedici.

6000rpm with a piston that heavy? If it doesn't fall apart that’s pretty impressive.

I don't really know too much about engine design, and normally like the size excess of US cruisers, but... is there any real point to making a twin of this size?
Surely by the time the suck cycle has cleared the mix from one cylindar, you'd be back home? Chevy engined customs of 3-7 litres are normally V8s. Surely, keeping it a twin at this size will mean that cubes themselves won't be the limiting factor?
What's next? A 4 litre single? Stick it in a front-wheel drive crosser with realy knobbly tyres and watch it plough its own track through the jumps and tabletops
