190 CN4 – air-cooled four-cylinder boxer engine

Design and Features

It is the most powerful engine in MVVS's offer. Its cylinder unit is based on a proven 50 cc air-cooled engine. 

The exhausts are oriented to the underside, under the engine. Crankcase made by precise CNC machining from solid material. The crankshaft is mounted in four ball bearings. The connecting rod has both eyes fitted with needle bearings. The pistons are made of aluminum alloy with a high silicon content. The piston has a special surface treatment that reduces friction and ensures longer life. Aluminum alloy cylinders have an internal working surface treated with the nikasil method.

The engine is typical for smooth running, easy starts and a flat course of torque.

The preparation of the mixture is controlled by two Walbro carburettors with a choke and a diaphragm pump. The ignition is battery powered with  electronics and a microprocessor controlled ignition timing and with safety functions.
