There are many ways to call a 2 stroke motor. 2 stroke engine of course, but also, a two cycle motor! However, for those that are not that much into mechanics here is a brief intro on the 2 stroke motor! This type of combustion engine completes the power cycle with only two strokes. Thus, the name. This, however, is the contrast to the 4 stroke engine, which, logically requires 4 strokes of the piston so it could complete a power cycle! However, the 2 stroke motor is known for the fact that the end of a combustion stroke and the beginning stroke happen at the same time!
There are different types of the 2 stroke motor: the piston controlled inlet port, the reed inlet valve as well as the rotary inlet valve. Of course, there are many others as well. However, this custom 2 stroke engine will leave you speechless!

At first glance this engine looks like an alien from a science fiction movie. But later on, once you hear it running, that impression disappears and we know that it is a word of an item made by humans from the planet Earth. See how easily this motor starts, only with a tiny contact. Moreover, listen to that cool idling and revving sound which suits a racing car, not a boat. Apart from the fact that this is a boat engine, its creators claim that it won`t be used as such. Who knows what they have in mind. Any ideas? Check out this video and feel free to share and comment!
