Development of low-cost 110cc engine
16 November 2015

Ricardo provided design and analysis support to a client in Asia who had developed a 110cc three-valve engine but had both performance and thermal problems with the prototype.

Ricardo used its suite of analysis tools to identify the design changes required to improve the engine performance, whilst at the same time providing adequate engine cooling.

The customer manufactured updated parts and, following a period of development, confirmed the required improvements, and successfully productionized the new design.
