The Mitsubishi L2E: lightweight and compact

The Mitsubishi L2E diesel engine is very light and compact. Its relatively high power output results in excellent performance. The engine is a four stroke, watercooled, two-cylinder engine.


The balanced design keeps vibrations to a minimum. This results in a quiet and user-friendly engine, which is emphasized by the low maintenance. All filters can be reached from the same side. A swift delivery of parts is possible thanks to interchangeability with other engine series.
