Default Re: What engine is best for me?

As far as a motor goes, when talking motor size that depends on your weight. 200lbs. and under 49cc. would be fine, anything over that and I would go for the 80cc. But as far as torque that is determined by your rear sprocket size. The lower # of teeth the more torque but the sacrifice is top end speed. I have an 80cc. with a 44 tooth sprocket and I do hills just fine and I weigh 300 lbs.
