Arxio XR50 Kart engine could be a big hit for future Paramotor Designs

Wankel Rotary engines have been around for many years in some form or another as with all engines there are positives and negatives, BUT with many advances in technology the basic design gets pushed to new limits, costs come down and a new market niche is found. In this case karting. In the past kart engines have proven popular paramotor engines, small, light and fast, but with high service rates.

Lets hope this German built 50hp rotary finds its way into the paramotor market. Quick specs. 17kg – 50cc (294cc rotary) producing 50hp at 8750rpm – 39Nm torque at 7500rpm – max rpm 10400, Electric start – Bing Carb, More information at

  1. The 294cc referred to in this blog that has been developed as collaboration between Woelfle Engineering and Parajet. The aero 294cc is only available through Parajet. The 294cc specific paramotor engine is different to the carting engine and is designed for use in the ultra light aircraft.
    Parajet and Woelfle engineering also developed another rotary engine which is the 160cc and again is for the use in Ultra light aircraft.

  2. The Parajet Cyclone paramotors featuring the new Rotron rotary powered engines are available now for orders. The first 30 units have been sold and orders are now being taken for the next production run. The 160cc 25HP Cyclone is available in electric or pull-start versions and a choice of cage sizes with the 41″ Compact and 53″ Macro. The 294cc 40HP is only availble in an electric start Macro version.

    The 160cc and 294cc Rotron engine-only versions are available but are sold only for ultralights and microlights, and not available for paramotor use other than the Parajet Cyclone paramotors.
