CVT Transmission Basics

at 5:49 pm. Filed under Cool Gadgets

 

Engineering Explained goes into some details about how CVT Transmissions work. Love them or hate them it is an interesting piece of tech.

 

“A continuously variable transmission (CVT) (also known as a single-speed transmission, stepless transmission, pulley transmission, or, in case of motorcycles, a twist-and-go) is an automatic transmission that can change seamlessly through a continuous range of effective gear ratios. This contrasts with other mechanical transmissions that offer a fixed number of gear ratios. The flexibility of a CVT allows the input shaft to maintain a constant angular velocity.”

MASERATI-POWERED, 470 HP, MOTORCYCLE

This MASERATI-POWERED, 470 HP, MOTORCYCLE has some power to spare but I am not sure how easy to ride it would be.

“The Lazareth LM847 has four wheels and a Maserati V8 engine. It’s exactly as insane as it sounds, and it looks crazy too. Yours for €200,000. Beyond the ludicrous motor, the LM847 forgoes a standard transmission in lieu of a single-speed chain gearbox, which means all you really have to do is hold on. Top speed hasn’t been announced but if the Tomahawk’s 200-plus-mph figure is any indicator, the LM847 should be in the same ballpark.”
