Here you can see the Honda RC51 motorcycle engine tucked up in the middle of the chassis. This is a 999cc engine that came on Honda RVT1000R cycles from 2000 to 2006. Its design is a V-twin engine having a dual overhead cam with two fuel injectors and four valves per cylinder. In stock form, the motor produces about 130 hp, but F2 Racing has tweaked it slightly to add just a bit more punch. A Tilton pump along with a B&M plate cooler work to keep engine oil temps sane during heated runs.
