1 Horse Power = 746 Watts

200 Watts = just over 1/4 HP

Whoever decided upon a maximum of 200 Watts must really dislike motorbikes.

I would think 1KW or 1-1/3 HP would be a more reasonable limit.

All but the tiniest hobby engines are rated for more than 1/4 HP.

You would need something like an early 1900's thumper to be in compliance, and they were too heavy to work in a bike.

I feel your pain...I don't think you're going to be able to find an engine. You'll have to go with a motor and a battery. 200 Watts should produce somewhere between 8-12 MPH

hey mate. i dont think a petrol motor producing under 200w would do anything. ur best best to stay legal is go electric. my mates got a 200W electric bike and it goes bout 20km on the flat with no wind. its alright uphills but needs a lil help.
the onlything i dislike bout electric is having to charge it.

this thread is old but rocksolid engines has a variety of different engines including a street legal 200w certified engine, but it is more expensive then a modded 70cc one ..., literally saying that if you wanna be street legal you pay the price,

im in no way trying to pick on rocksolid here, in fact i am about to order a kit off them, YAY!!!!!!
