The BMW airhead twins before 1979 or 1980 had a heavier flywheel which gave better Torque. Twins like the Yamaha XS650 give goo Torque comparable to the Triumphs but yamaha reliable. I think a Honda CB750 4cylinder would struggle to get a sidecar moving slipping clutch higher RPM but it has been done.

the 1200 CC Suzuki Bandit is a good tug
I had a chance at an older Yamaha xs850 about a year ago and I didn't act quick enough and someone beat me to it. I still regret that.
