Is a flat-plane crank better?
What Is the Advantage of a Flat-Plane Crank? Due to their lightweight design, flat-plane cranks have excellent primary balance properties, so there’s no need for the large counterweights found with cross-plane cranks. Less weight means less inertia, smaller size, and increased acceleration (revs faster).
Why does Yamaha use crossplane?
A crossplane crankshaft is one that eliminates what Yamaha refers to as “inertial torque,” and the “crossplane” term was coined by Yamaha with the introduction of the 2009 YZF-R1. This torque, Yamaha contends, can mask the feel of combustion torque to the rider, and eliminating it gives better traction and feedback.
Does R6 have crossplane crank?
If our assumptions are correct, it is of note then that Yamaha didn’t give the new R6 a crossplane crank, like on the R1. This is because Yamaha has been touting the benefits of the crossplane firing order for some time now.
