V4 Vs I4
Given equal displacement and HP, would the power curve be the same or different, i.e. where the most torque or peak HP lies? Or are these configurations meant to be purely aerodynamic, such as I4 being wider and short, and V4 being narrow and long, and thus no difference in power curve like v-twin vs I4.
Except VFR, why is there such lack of interest in making more bikes with V4 engine in them?
For their superbikes, why did Honda go from V-twin to I4 when equal displacement was given, instead of going back to V5 such as RC45? Don't V configurations supposedly give the "extra" grunt, which is why Honda chose V-5 for RC211V, when most others on the grid are big bang I4? Thanks.
