Default Re: Why do people keep calling it an 80cc engine?

38 Horsepower??!?!!? ROTFL

That's like 28,348 watts or 236 amps!

I think the reason they claim these motors are 80cc is that they add the displacement left in the concave head to that of the actual piston movement in the cylinder.

This kind of trickery is almost on par with what we get from politicians and their blowhard promises.
