Everyone wants a shot with a twin, right? And when it comes to bikes, this configuration offers action all areas...

V-twins are not for everyone. Notoriously difficult to get well fuelled, expensive to maintain and often delivering brutal amounts of power, it's easy to be overawed by a twin ­ especially if you've jumped straight off an inline four. Coming in differing configurations, the V`s angle can offer a range of characteristics. Ducati's long held preference is to go with the 90-degree V (or L) for reasons of balance. Aprilia, however, plumped for the 60-degree version to make its engine more compact. The advantage of the former is the balance it offers, the latter needing further refining to get it running tolerably smooth. KTM's lump sits at a 75-degree angle, so snuggly in the middle of the action. It's horses for courses!
