Norton Classic air-cooled twin-rotor motorcycle
The Wankel KKM motorcycle: The "A" marks one of the three apices of the rotor. The "B" marks the eccentric shaft, and the white portion is the lobe of the eccentric shaft. The distance between "A" and "B" remains constant. The shaft turns three times for each rotation of the rotor around the lobe and once for each orbital revolution around the eccentric shaft.

Object rotating around an axis is the number of turns of the object divided by time, specified as revolutions per minute (rpm), cycles per second (cps), radians per second (rad/s), etc.

- Rotational speed

Since Wankel engines operate at a relatively high rotational speed, at 6,000rpm of output shaft, the Rotor makes only 2,000 turns.
