You could use the article. In the sprit of the late, great Gordon Jennings let me point out: The number of cylinders or bore/ stroke ratio has nothing to do with the shape of the power curve. The only thing that is effected is the maximum RPM the engine can turn, short stroke (from big bore or more cylinders) means the engine can turn more RPM. The Honda S2000 is, by motorcycle standards, very long stroke yet it is peaky and makes around 120 HP/ liter in EPA legal tune. That might not impress you compared to the GSXR1000 (also a long stroke design) at 140 HP/ liter but bikes have a much less restrictive emissions limits and they need to last much longer.
The bottom line is (to steal one of Gordon's great analogies) do you think the gasoline know if it is in a short, wide container (like a can of tuna) or a long, narrow containers (like a can of soup)? All the fuel/ air mixture does is burn, if there is lots of it and/ or it burns more often you get more power, if there is less or it burns less often you get less power.
I very much doubt the folks at MO have the resources to devote to a subject this complex. My favorite technical site, Wheelbase, is off line since Gordon died. Your best bet would be to find a good book (you can always start with by Kevin Cameron's Sportbike Performance Handbook) and read it.
