Husaberg / Husqvarna and similar engines

On the internet I found several engines that look like husaberg / husqvarna 2000 engines, the manufacturers are JAWA, PRAGUE, VM, FOLAN, HIGHLAND ... Why so many similarities?

When you are making engine for same purpose you will endup with similar conception. But inspiration from each other is in place too

Folan and Highland (Hedlund) were more or less the same company.

Beta, Sherco and KTM as well as Husaberg and Vertamati/Vor are similar because they had the same designer for B, S, K all designed I believe by a Husaberg man. Vor was a copy by tywo brothers of a Husaberg having started as one.

Thanks Taffy. So I imagine that the transition to layout whit closed cylinder between two crankcase halves and balancer shaft mounted coaxially to the crankshaft are improvements over a one piece cylinder engine with a classic balancer shaft.

yes, Husaberg were the only ones to try it. but don't forget that they STARTED with the balancer infront like most other when they made their 1996-2000 electric start bikes.

underneath those starter motors INFRONT of the engine is a balancer assembly.

secondly, the next geeneration of Husaberg engine that did arrive in 2001 was only there because Husaberg had their new design taken away by KTM and were told to "think of something else quickly but it can't look like the engine you just made for us to steal".

I have a 2002 Praga ED610. Yes, comparing it to my Husabergs it is very similar. Water pump impellers are interchangeable among many other parts. Brakes, wheels,same ignitions etc.

Praga is very nice, you can not see many of those.
Praga and VM are same brand also. When the Praga ends one guy continued with manufacture under brand VM

So the husaberg 2001-2008 layout is not a real improvement over the classic layout, even if: having the cylinder tight between the crankcase halves does not lead to combustion or coolant sealing problems; The crankshaft does not flex due to the presence of the balancing countershaft and the greater distance between the main bearings but due to the weight of the main balance and the rigidity of the crank pin.

I believe from alot of research that my Praga is one of two 610s that were imported into the U.S. I have not been able to find the other one. It is a great bike, it does everything well as you would expect from a bike that is pretty much Czech version of a Husaberg. I haven't had to do any internal work on the engine but I would suspect some internals would be maybe not interchangeable with a Berg but very similar.
