Suzuki RE5 Wankel Rotary

1975


  • It looks like no other motorcycle
  • It sounds like no other motorcycle
  • The rotor is geared directly to the eccentric shaft so this eliminates the need for connecting rods or wristpins and the vibration they can cause
  • The single rotor is like three pistons, one for each face on the rotor
  • Each face of the rotor acts like a piston going thru intake, compression, ignition, and exhaust
  • It works like no other motorcycle
  • Instead of pistons that pump up and down, it has a rotor that turns around
  • The motor runs so smoothly that rubber engine mounts are unnecessary
  • With every revolution of the rotor, three firing cycles are completed
