As downsizing continues, BMW and Mercedes may go to three cylinders
Over in Münich, the next generation 1-series is already being developed to cope with the vibrations of a three cylinder and the next 3 will likely follow the same path. Threes are nothing new to BMW; the company's K-series bikes first used the configuration in the mid-'80s. Just as with downsizing the larger engines, the triples will facilitate weight reductions both from the engines themselves and from reduced need for supporting structure.
