Also known as an “RPM Limiter”: A rev limiter reduces the power of an engine when a certain RPM is reached. As an engine safety device, a rev limiter is placed in the electronic circuitry to prevent the engine from over-revving. For example, if you have a motorcycle throttle wide open and miss a shift, the rapid increase in RPM’s could damage engine parts.
