Default Dumb noob question

I enjoy my motorized bicycle but I am totally ignorant when it comes to mechanics.
Can someone answer my question?
Does the cubic centimeters of an engine determine power or just size? Can different displacement have the same horse power? I have a 26 cc engine and can go 20+ on a flat stretch. I read that the solex and the amf roadmaster had 49cc engines and were much slower. But wouldn't the larger engine have more power ( or as my dad used to say "more Whomp to" "
I have a need for slightly increased speed
