Development of new flat boxer designs
The emergence of new designs in flat boxer engines increase performance and reduce carbon emissions. There is an increasing focus on advanced engines that can offer better fuel efficiency with minimal engine vibrations.
Subaru, a leading Japanese automotive manufacturer of flat boxer engines, has developed a new generation of flat boxer engine known as the FB series. These engines have higher capacity improve torque performance by almost 3%. The new design reduces friction losses by 28% due to lightweight pistons and connecting rods and reduced piston ring tension.
Integration of turbochargers with flat-four boxer engines
Some of the popular racing car manufacturers use flat boxer engines in the vehicles. For instance, Porsche is renowned for the design, development, and use of flat boxer engines. The company is popular in the global automotive market for the engine technology equipped in the cars. The company has been using this engine design since the 1940s in Porsche type 356 roadster.
The company has developed a flat-four boxer engine for its models, namely, Cayman and Boxster. The new engine is equipped with advanced fuel injection system and centrally placed fuel injectors for optimum fuel pressure and operating temperature. In addition, the integration of the variable cam plus system with the lift and camshaft adjustment results in increased power output and superior performance.
Development of air-cooled flat boxer engine for motorcycles
The global motorcycle industry is evolving rapidly with innovative developments. The growing popularity of racing events and the increasing demand for high-performance motorcycles leads to a high demand for fuel-efficient engines.
“The motorcycle market in Europe comprises of premium, luxury, and sports bike manufacturers who dominate the global motorcycle market with advanced technology and superior engine design,” says Siddharth.
BMW has launched R1200GS that features a four-stroke flat twin engine with a double overhead camshaft and balancer shaft containing four valves per cylinder. In addition, the throttle by wire system (also known as E-gas) is also offered in the motorcycles for power availability. The flat twin engine design offers high power, engine rigidity, and enhances the overall performance of the vehicle.
