MZ Comes Back with the New Revolutionary engine
The new announcement of MZ may not be looking pretty revolutionary as we haven’t heard from them for long, but it seems that this understated 125 Supermoto may prove out to be one of the shining stars in the motorcycle sector in 2014. Not only due to the factor that it is the new released of this recently-revived the German MZ marque, has it also held the brand’s historical tradition of bringing forth pioneering technology. In case of this engine, it is the Variable Valve Timing (VVV) technology.Photo 1: MZ
However, on overall assessment, the bottom half of this 125cc four-stroke liquid-cooled single cylinder engine model is the same one MZ had been using for years now, but the top half on the other hand is totally new. Instead of making use of the conventional camshaft, which features fixed valve timing, new revolutionary MZ changed its head design with a new stepper motor as well as and a clever internal mechanism, which control the inlet valve management. It is a ride-by-wire technology with a sophisticated ECU, which can control the valve lift and the duration to offer an optimum performance at any RPM.
Claimed, being truly revolutionary, by the MZ associate’s designer Uwe Eisenbeis, the company states that it is the first of its kind system in the world, which don’t require any throttle body for regulating the air-fuel mixture. As per the engineering experts of MZ, this system a probably bring forth a lot more efficiency in performance as well as much more fuel efficiency.Photo 2: MZ Comes Back with the New Revolutionary engine
The major benefits of the new systems, as claimed by the design engineers, are multifold like the engine performance can easily be optimized throughout the rev-range than delivering a fixed peak power as it is done by the conventional engines. So at high rpm’s, there is a high valve lift and at low rmp’s, it may feature a low valve lift only. Next, as the combustion is made more efficient with fewer rotating parts and keeping frictional losses minimum, the fuel consumption too got enhanced multifold.
