The Wankel engine is a type of Internal Combustion engine using an eccentric rotary design to convert pressure into a rotating motion instead of using reciprocating #pistons. Its four-stroke cycle takes place in a space between the inside of an oval-like epitrochoid-shaped housing and a rotor that is similar in shape to a Reuleaux triangle but with sides that are somewhat flatter.

The RE5! The engine was so specialized dealers were not permitted to work on its internals -- they exchanged engines with Suzuki. The extreme bodywork gave way to parts from the GT750 before the RE5 was discontinued.
