If it had the 8 speed dual range tranny, I would leave the powerplant alone.

A 250 version would be awesome!

A 150 or 200 would even be ok.

Looks like they have abandoned the entire pressed steel frame shell and down tube for a tubular frame, unfortunately this looks like it will be heavier.

If they could just add a couple more ratios at the slight penalty of widening the engine cases a smidge, they could do away with the 4X2 transmission. As far as power, why would you want to bump up a 110 cc engine to 20 h.p.? It would take away all of the low end torque and wide powerband of the original.

Honda is already running their vertical cylinder and head of their small vertical singles on this bike, this engine could easily be bored out to 59 mm and stroked so it could have a possible upwards displacement of 160 to 180cc's. I'd stay with the 2 valve heads, they're really common and easy to service.

Look at how that bike is mounted on its stand. Apparently Honda is worried that the bike will be stolen during the show. I'd buy it though...

Not really, that's a trade show, gimmicky nutz, boltz, and steel plate display thing, it's not even bolted to the floor, also this show is in Japan.

my last thumper I only sold on friday was a single cylinder SOHC 4 valve motor that had tons of low down grunt and yet it still screamed at the top end appropriate gearing will keep power down low and how you do the timing also play a part in how the power is delivered also if it had variable gearbox one for dirt and then flick it over to street it would be very useful so you can cruise easier at nippier speeds which is safer as people are not going to get frustrated as much and do unsafe overtakes.

We probably won't see it here in the US, but................Honda has been on a roll with smaller, economical bikes and so far they appear to be selling well so you never know, maybe we will see it.

So how much rpm does a 110 cc engine need to spin to make 20 hp ?

Do you ever use periods or commas?

its still a single cylinder engine so it won't rev very high compared to a 4 cylinder bike, hence why single cylinders have very good engine braking. the fourvalve takegawa kit to produce 20bhp is not 110cc its a 140cc big bore aswell so its capacity is increased and bigger capacities don't have to scream so much to make the power compared to a 110cc engine. With modern fuel injection you can get the power to be delivered very linearly so no massive step in power when you get into the higher rev range.
