Working Of Motorcycles-
The piston performs the reciprocating motion which is converted into the rotary motion. Next, a transmission system is present that transfers the power to rear wheel of the motorcycle. The motion of rear wheel propels the motorcycle in the forward direction. To steer the motorcycle, the front wheel is connected with a handlebar that can be turned by the driver. There are two hand levers present on both the sides of the handle. These levers allow riders to operate the clutch and the front brake. Also, there are two-foot pedals on either side of the engine. These pedals enable a rider to change gears and operate rear wheel brake.
Motorcycle engines can have multiple cylinders from one to six. For several years, a V-twin engine was the primary choice of the engineers in Europe, Japan and America. The V-twin got its name from the two cylinders aligned in such a manner that forms a V shape. The angle between these cylinders may vary; the classic Harley-Davidson V-twin engine has the angle of 45 degrees between its cylinders.
In the developing countries, the use of motorcycles is rising in order to get better fuel economy. Around 58% of the motorcycles in the world are used in southern, Eastern Asia regions and Asian-pacific.
