    I just came across this, and it looks like an interesting prospect for a motorized bicycle. I'm guessing that when it becomes available the price point will make it out of reach, but thought I would post it anyhow. Here is a video of a go-cart powered with it. Small size, 3.5hp, smooth power band.

    The rated cc of rotaries has been a subject of argment for years. Will it fall into a 50cc category for transport purposes?

    Huh. I thought they were making a 70cc 5hp. I would not mind seeing one around 20hp. Would make for a very light bike.

    Good question!
    I googled how to detemine the size of a rotory engine, and it got confusing pretty quickly.
