    Not a Katana, but Fark, what an awesome sound!

    Yep a 125cc Honda.

    1960s technology. RC149 5 cylinder 125cc, 20 valves.... The stuck 2 and a half of their 50cc twin GP engines together.
    Doesn't idle, revs like its got next to no flywheels.
    Got to keep it above 10,00 rpm just to keep it alive.... valve overlap must be ridiculous!

    Here's the crank and piston set off the 50cc RC115
