    For a start, they save space.

    They also sound a lot better :smile:

    The best answer is probably about dynamic balancing, but doesn't always hold true. Off the top of my head, the smallest in-line engine which can be balanced is a straight six. V engines tend to be balanced (with the exception of a V6).

    This answer probably needs a bit more thought, but I must dash, sorry.
