yeah. Question remains is can you take 200 cylinders, ignitions, carbs etc. and now make a 9hp micro. we wont know for a while. Maybe we get one year of better parody? If there is money to spend someone will spend it. You can not control spending, only complexity.
Once upgraded will that near 8hp micro now make 9 with no changes or will it still be about 8? the impressive thing about the Evo micro curve is not the peak hp. Peak hp can be really deceiving particularly in a single speed vehicle. The width of the curve and area under it is what is impressive.
