English term or phrase:weight displacement
The context: motorcycles
"The weight displacement on this bike means that it handles well."
Explanation: Bizarre. En tant que proprio d'une jolie petite Harley Davidson Sportster 883, pour moi, "displacement" parle du moteur - voir ci-dessous. Est-ce que vous travaillez à partir d'une traduction? "Weight distribution" peut-être, mais "displacement"? Bizarre...
Displacement : with reference to motorbikes, this can be in reference to the number of « cc ».
Kawasaki rode the wave generated by what later came to be called the "Izanagi Boom" and, in September 1966, the company proudly announced its W1, a motorcycle with a displacement of 650cc - at the time of its launch, this was the largest displacement bike on the Japanese market.
