A catalytic converter is an exhaust emission control device that converts toxic gases and pollutants in exhaust gas from an internal combustion engine into less-toxic pollutants by catalyzing a redox reaction (an oxidation and a reduction reaction).
The static compression ratio of an internal combustion engine or external combustion engine is a value that represents the ratio of the volume of its combustion chamber from its largest capacity to its smallest capacity.
A flat engine is an internal combustion engine with horizontally-opposed cylinders.
Fuel efficiency is a form of thermal efficiency, meaning the ratio from effort to result of a process that converts chemical potential energy contained in a carrier (fuel) into kinetic energy or work.
Gasoline (American English), or petrol (British English), is a transparent, petroleum-derived liquid that is used primarily as a fuel in spark-ignited internal combustion engines.
BMW's motorcycle history began in 1921 when the company commenced manufacturing engines for other companies.

The 'latest' Triumph Trophy is a touring motorcycle launched by Triumph in 2012. There have, however, been other Triumph models bearing the Trophy name over a long period. For example - Triumph Trophy models with 3-cylinder 900cc engines and 4-cylinder 1200cc engines were manufactured at Hinckley starting in 1991. The new version features a liquid-cooled, 12-valve, straight-three engine, which is mated to a six-speed gearbox and shaft drive. The engine is also used on its dual-sport sibling, the Tiger Explorer, although on the Trophy it produces slightly less power and has a taller sixth gear, more suitable for the touring proposal of this motorcycle. The base model will be complemented by the SE, which features extra equipment such as electronically adjustable suspension, a Bluetooth audio system, and a tyre-pressure monitoring system. The SE will be the only model sold in the United States, Canada, Australia and Brazil.
