That’s right, Polini is releasing yet another ground breaking engine for the paramotor market. This new engine is 130CC and will be an improved engine over the existing Thor 100.
The new 130 is a square engine (bore and stroke are the same) with 21.5 hp, but has an improvement in torque and maximum power range that has been reduced to 8800 rpm, and optimized to increase the reliability. It will be available with the PWK float bowl carb or Walbro WG8, just like the 100. The crankcase has been modified and will have the same engine mounting pattern as the Thor 200.
The 130 will have the Flash start but no electric start available. It will also use the same props as the 100.
These engines should be available by mid to late February.
At this time, we are taking pre-orders for the engine, shoot us an email to get yourself on the waiting list!
Update: 1/15/13 – We now have a price from Polini. The new Polini Thor 130 will be 60 eur more than the 100 or in USD about $100.00 give or take the ever changing value of our two currencies.
