  • 2 Stroker cruiser question.

    I've never seen, or heard of any two stroker cruiser. I know there's gotta be some out there. I've just never heard of them.

    Anyone got any vids or anything?

      I dont think the nature of cruisers works as a 2 stroke, never heard of one.

              cruisers are all about torque, in general. 2-strokes don't produce any, so the 2 ideas don't go together.
              Also, cruisers are generally designed to be low maintenance and have a long service life, which also doesn't really fit in with 2-strokes

                Mazda Roadpacer. Although a car, this is a prime example of a two stroke cruiser and coincidently a total failure in the market place.
                They say money can't buy happiness. But you can use it to buy a Triumph and you never see sad people riding Triumphs.

                  the good old HJ Holden with a rotary and auto, it was never likely to achieve much. Not sure you're classifying the rotisserie correctly calling it a 2 stroke though since it's Otto cycle in a single action rather than an up stroke and down stroke completing a power cycle.
                  Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

                    Jesus, I just wikied Roadpacer. 26L/100km! And shit acceleration in return. How the fuck did this get past the bad idea stage.

                    And a very good analogy for there being no cruiser 2 strokers.

                      Since we're Wiki-ing http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wankel_engine it's a 4 stroke cycle rotary not a 2 stroke.

                        Of course, but as an analogy for two concepts combining to make a poor fit as Loud implied & Barfy confirmed.

                          Yeah I can't imagine a Harley having the same appeal screaming along ning ninging through gears instead of potato potatoing off the line. But you could just as easily use a 600 Inline 4 as your example, small capacity and high revving to make equivalent power.

                            Yeah i didn't think there would have been many. But the reason i ask, is what did they have out before 4- strokers? In the sense of cruiser style. I pictured maybe like the ww1 / ww2 motorcycle. Were they 4 stroke? I dunno, i honestly have no idea how long 4 - strokes have been around for.

                              WLA Harleys were used in WW2 and were 4 stroke, as was the circa 1912 "silent grayfellow" 4 stroke was the norm, 2 stroke was generally used to put more power into a smaller, lighter, comparatively cheaper package, think scooter or trailbike and roadrace bikes.
