To improve overall efficiency, Suzuki moto placed ports in the crankcase above the bearing webs to allow pressure under the pistons to equalize.
In this way, the descending piston meets little or no air resistance, which prevents the loss of horsepower and efficiency that occurs in conventional engines.
