Agree that a short stroke/large bore engine would have made even more sense back in the NA days.

Possibly a sign of larger budgets and/or larger production volumes that makes it economically viable to do this now.

I also see the advantage of being able to increase stroke and/or bore in future versions of this engine. Might be an indication of a long term engine platform.
