Range with 2 wing tanks 575 MilesTheRotax 582is a 48kW (64hp)two-stroke, two-cylinder, rotary intake valve, oil-in-fuel or oil injection pump, liquid-cooled, gear reduction-drive engine manufactured byBRP-Rotax GmbH & Co. KG. It was designed for use onlight Rotax 582 is based upon the earlierRotax 532engine design. The 582 increased the bore from the 532 engine's 72 to 76 mm (2.8 to 3.0 in) and increased the stroke from 61 to 64 mm (2.4 to 2.5 in) This increased thedisplacementfrom 521.2cc (31.81cuin) to 580.7cc (35.44cuin), an increase of 11%. The increased displacement had the effect of flattening out the 532's torque curve and allowed the 582 to produce useful power over a wider rpm range. Reliability over the 532 was also improved.
The 582 features liquid-cooled cylinder heads and cylinders with a rotary valve inlet. Cooling is via an externally-mounted radiator. Lubrication is either by use of pre-mixed fuel and oil or oil injection from an externally-mounted oil tank. The 582 has dual independent breakerless, magneto capacitor-discharge ignition (CDI) systems and is equipped with two piston-typecarburetors. It uses a manifold-driven pneumatic fuel pump to provide fuel pressure.
