    I have heard the term V-twin for engines many times, but I am unsure as to what it means exactly. Can someone enlighten me? Thanx!

    twin-cylinder with a V-configuration

    So 2 cylinders in a V-shape

    You know what a V8 or V6 engine looks like in a car or truck?

    So it would be the same but with 2 cylinders
