Interesting for sure, but can somebody correct me if Iam wrong...……...The top view drawing looks to me, like the intake & exhaust pushrods are on opposite sides of the engine????????

YUP! Mentioned further down on the article

"The most obvious visual change is the positioning of the two pushrods on either side of the cylinders instead of together on one side on Harley’s existing engines. The current engine uses the pushrods to move a pair of rocker arm shafts, one to open the two intake valves and the other opening the two exhaust valves"
