Indian V-Twin review
The Indian Motocycle Company Manufacturing was founded in 1902 by C. Oscar and M.Hendee of the Hendee Company Manufacturing in Springfield. Both Hedstrm and Hendee had a background in bicycle racing, which led to their interest in the motor driven bicycle. The V-Twin engines is a 2-cylinder engine layout in which the cylinders form a V.
The V-Twin engine pistons are aligned so that, if look at them along the line of the crankshaft, they appear to be in a V. The V configuration reduces the overall engine length and weight compared to an equivalent straight engine the straight engine or in line engine is an internalcombustion engine with all cylinders aligned in one row. The Indian v-twin configuration allows for optimum torque for a given displacement.
V twin engines can be mounted in the transversal position the definition of `transversal` is a line extending or lying across at right angles to the long axis. V-twins on Harley Davidson Motorcycles are mounted in a parallel position. The Indian was one of the first makers to offer a successful V-Twin in 1906.
