First off, such shallow cylinder orientation lets the crankshaft migrate 3.9 in.higher and 6.3 in. rearward in the chassis, increasing ground clearance to 15.3 in. and canceling the effects of that spinning crank on handling. The nearly horizontal cylinder also keeps combustibles moving through the 42mm Keihin throttle body on a straight trajectory to the cylinder head. The singular architecture also let Husaberg's chassis boffins pen a chromoly steel skeleton that's considerably narrower than more conventional designs, with relatively reedy tubes beneath the engine itself. Tucking exhaust plumbing out of the way is easier as well. And the design deviations don't stop there.
