Reds Racing's all-new 521 Sport off-road engine is now available. This new engine belongs to Reds S LINE together with 721 Scuderia, Superveloce and Corsa, a new range of engines produced with different materials, from different suppliers and with new technologies. All assembled in-house and 100% made in Italy.

The new engine features high reliability, tuning stability and fuel mileage. Combined with specific technical changes in the porting and new materials, this 5 port engine features good power and fuel efficiency. 521 Sport guarantees excellent performance at a reasonable price. 521 Sport engine has been provided with the same aluminum carburetor as 721 engines to guarantee reliability and tuning stability. 

REDS Racing 521 Sport  features a new and unique high stiffness crankcase design. It is all new materials and casting technology. The engine is produced with pressure die casting, this is a very high quality process. Previous generation R line crankcase was with gravity casting.
