    Oval Pistons

    I know this is more of a bike question but it's something I'm very curious about.

    What are the advantages (or supposed) of oval pistons? Does it work in practice?

    I remember Honda had a oval piston motorbike in the late eighties but seemed to have dropped it very quickly. One of the reasons I want to know is because within the rules for engine sizes in the new 4 stoke GP bikes next season there is a section regarding oval pistons.
