Another V twin joins the Stuart range.

While browsing their website I noticed they had sneaked this one in :-

With V twin versions of the no10 and no7 engines recently added I wonder if a no4 twin is in the pipeline ?

They had them both running on their stand at the Midlands show. Still not that keen on them.

With a little thought & wizardry, :thinking: a truly horizontal inlet manifold and ported fittings would greatly improve & eliminate that skipping rope lookalike  :facepalm: version we see here.....Derek

Not a V engine, but looking at the ST site, looks like they have the 6A back in production.   Great Engine.

If nothing else, it's good to see them adding things or bringing them back rather than just slowly dwindling away.

The structural design, with the pin-jointed tie at the top, still looks very wrong.
Because it is.
But we discussed all this when the No 7 V-twin thing emerged.
