Be prepared for a 4-stroke engine with a power-to-weight ratio similar to that of 2-stroke engines but without the typical disadvantages of high fuel consumption, noise, emissions and short service life.
Textron Marine Motors (formerly Weber Motor) presents with the second engine generation again an extreme compact and powerful 2-cylinder 4-stroke engine with 850ccm Due to the remarkable design, the Weber 4-stroke engines have a power-to-weight ratio similar to that of 2-stroke engines but without the typical disadvantages of high fuel consumption, noise, emissions and short service life. This concept allows Textron Motors to position itself successfully in the market as a manufacturer of highly-efficient engines packages for both automotive and non-automotive applications. Additional features such as power take-off on either engine end, reversible cylinder head, and the broad performance range of the MPE 850 from 15 kW to 110 kW allow for engine usage in the most varying applications. Owing to its flexible engine concept, the Textron engine is perfectly suitable for passenger cars, ATVs, snowmobiles, motorcycles and marine applications as well as for composite engines and hybrid drives. The engine control system enables optimal adaptation for the various operating conditions.
Low overall height based on the patented cylinder head design and optional dry sump lubrication. Low weight, close to that of standard 2-stroke engines and far below comparable 4-stroke engines
Cylinder head reversible by 180° owing to centered timing chain. This feature allows for reversed positioning of intake and exhaust system. Engine incline from -20° to +20° with wet-sump lubrication. Larger inclines possible with dry-sump lubrication. Internal/external starter/alternator solutions possible. Large amount of fastening points on engine housing and cylinder head
4-stroke concept (up to 60% lower emission pollution compared to 2-stroke engines). Euro 4 compatible (with appropriate exhaust regulation). Low fuel consumption values (savings up to 20% compared to standard cars with 4-cylinder engine). Use of alternative fuels (natural gas) possible.
Usage of same components for a wide engine performance range. Long service life (depending on application). Low costs for maintenance and storage/stock parts
