    Maybe Toro should start making bikes then, because I have to agree it sounded pretty good. Kind of frenetic, like a pissed off inline 4, or a drunken 2 stroke with slowed reflexes.

    Well it's no Ducati v-twin... But it's unique and interesting, especially compared to a typical (stock) street bike today.

    The best sounding bike I ever heard in person was an air cooled Monster with Termignonis. Probably not even in the top 10 of all time best sounding bikes ever, but great even so.

    I'd like to hear this radial at full song, in an old biplane they can sound amazing.

    it looks as if a model airplane engine was installed. The Pistons can't be much larger than a thimble.
    Heres a 99cc that looks very similar

    I never heard of those , but I found it on Wikipedia. 48 HP. I'm sure you could easily coax more from it.

    One for the two-stroke fans. 48 cylinders. It has a separate 250cc engine as a starter motor!

    They were gentlemen's motorcycles designed for torque not power.

    Like a Harley ? :lol3 Mild porting and a shitty two into one pipe , you had no choice in stock form. All relatively easily remedied.
