Can't remember which magazine article had it, but they referred to the plated cylinder.

Stuart, I would imagine that would be the case for a light wt. modern engine but I hadn't found any mention of it. I'd prefer the plated bores as they seem to be really tough and last forever, Mark

Hey Mark- I found the reference in a Rider review- 2014 Yamaha FZ-09 First Ride Review

"Plated cylinders, forged aluminum pistons and cylinders offset by 5mm reduce friction and boost torque, which is said to be 65 lb-ft at the crank."

Thanks Stuart, all the good technology, plated bores, forged pistons and offset cylinder...should be one tough little engine. Mark
