The engine can operate easily in an economical rpm range with a minimum number of gear changes thanks to its wide torque range. A quick response to accelerator pedal pressure and improved low-speed performance ensures excellent torque at low revs.
The electronic engine management system EMS, which provides precise fuel injection and efficient combustion, achieves low emissions and low fuel consumption. Efficient combustion is provided by piston heads with annular grooves that force gases to be distributed along the edges of the combustion chamber.
The timing of the fuel injection also changes, which has a positive effect on engine noise and emissions. A small amount of fuel is injected before the main fuel is injected, which helps to reduce the noise level.
