Mac Motorcycles Mac Motorcycles are powered by the Buell® single cylinder, air-cooled, 2-valve, push rod, 492cc, 5-speed 'Blast' engine. They're called "thumpers" and with good reason, with one combustion for every 720° of crankshaft rotation when that cylinder fires, it's really an "event".

It has a 350cc (or 21ci) engine and was called the “Twenty-one” to commerate the 21 year Triumph Engineering Company anniversary. Triumph produced these from 1957 – 1966, though the latter years saw it without the bathtub and a 500cc version was also introduced in 1959.
