One of the major problem in putting car engine on motorcycle will be weight
sure bike would make more power but it will be used mostly to carry that load
so net gain will not be satisfactory

the second drawback will be of size

i am sure the weight factor isnt an issue the 800cc motor can easily pull a 700 kilo vehicle ..if the 796cc struggled to pull its own load i dbout maruti 800 would have been this successful.. the max the bike will weigh is perhaps 250 kilos ?

i think you will have problem with the balance of the bike ... mounting it will not be easy either ..but didnt they have a bike with an 1.3 esteem enigine@ 2005 speed run ?

Some dudes from chandigarh put a gypsy engine on a bike. Autocar/overdrive carried the story. I dont think I have those articles not, but if you do a search you may get the info

Well we do have some here in india. If I remember right, there was one made in punjab, using the esteem's engine. It was done by some guy who owns a factory. This happened years back.

I have exactly what you asked for, my friend

Click on the thumbnail

M800engine_on_bike

Note From Moderator - Thanks for the post technocrat, but we would rather you provide the specifics of the magazine (Name,Month,Page) than upload the scan of an entire article from one of the indian mags due to several reasons.

Not to sound rude but 40hp is'nt exactly "high pėrformence ". But what about cooling? Regenrative system maybe, like hooked to waterpump. But all that power must be stored somewhere. Still very interesting!
