The newest is the creation of Modena Engines as the latest player in the shifterkart engine manufacture battle, and this Italian-made powerplant is now available in the United States. CPI Racing has signed on to become the first American company to the worldwide distribution network for Modena Engines. The Pennsylvania-based operation is committed to providing the best quality products on the market, adding the KK1 engine as its newest commodity.

“Modena Engines is something new to the sport and we are happy to jump on board at the early stages,” commented CPI Racing’s Philip Davis. “The KK1 motor is truly remarkable and is a great addition to the karting market. Our goal is to provide those racers with the wish to pilot a KZ shifterkart with the best product available, and we believe Modena Engines is among the best.”

Modena Engines is a division of ASPA s.r.l., an Italian manufacturing company based near the city of Modena which sits between Parma and Bologna. The karting operation is located in Brescia, minutes away from the historic South Garda Karting facility in Lonato. Modena Engines is a newcomer to the world of kart racing, joining the top-level KZ category with the KK1 engine. The motor has many unique features designed at keeping overall dimensions and weights to a minimum, as seen by this video.
