"This small and compact 60cc power unit is designed to introduce the very youngest drivers to Karting and to make life as easy as possible to Dads and Mechanics" the Italian manufacturer posted.
The M1 requires basic installation as all accessories, with exception of the fuel tank, are fixed on the engine.
"The engine needs very low maintenence and basic service skills. It is provided with an easy and effective pull start system and a Tillotson diaphragm carburetor. The exhaust system stands with the engine and doesn't require installation on the chassis. The simple 1.5l fuel tank completes the engine package."
The M1 can be installed on 860/950mm wheelbase chassis.The cylinder/cylinder head and exhaust have safety heat covers and a practical ON/OFF switch is located on the right side of the engine providing easy and immediate access to operators.
IAME is targeting karting trainers, driver schools and rental facilities with this 2.0 horsepower engine.
