Honda 90° V-twin
This arrangement is common on motorcycles, the engine can be mounted in transversal position like on Harley-Davidsons, Ducatis and many recent Japanese motorcycles. The longitudinal V-twin as seen on Moto-Guzzis and some Hondas is less common. This position is well adapted to its transmission shafting, but has the disadvantage of causing a torque reaction that tend to lean the motorcycle on the side.
A 90° V-twin can achieve perfect primary balance but has some secondary imbalance. The 90° V-twin should be viewed as an alternative to the flat-twin configuration. The flat-twin is perfectly balanced.
