Italian term or phrase: frazionamento dispari
Per moto a due e tre cilindri il limite minimo è stabilito in 135 Kg, per le moto dotate di propulsori a 4 e 5 cilindri in 145, per i sei e oltre 155 chili. In sostanza a parità di peso c’è il vantaggio del frazionamento superiore per i frazionamenti dispari (3 e 5 cilindri) e la soluzione da noi adottata peserà ben 10 Kg in meno di quella della maggior parte della concorrenza.

Explanation:
Hi again, in partial retraction of my earlier interpretation of "frazionamento" (although I think it is still applicable to other parts of your text), I think you wouldn't be wrong with this somewhat pedantic solution. I don't think they're including single cylinder power units in this category, and, in the context of motorcycles (your field?) there is just no such thing as a 7-cylinder engine afaIk.
A nice little text you have there, very charming.
Respect
Derek

Grazie per l'interessamento. Tuttavia sul WEB non trovo riscontro alla sua soluzione. Ho chiesto alla filiale britannica della ditta che mi ha commissionato il lavoro e sto aspettando una risposta.
