Motorcycle engine in a Corolla? That's a horrible idea, why would anyone want to do that?

You've got plenty of power. It's all about gearing. I once was for at short period the proud owner af a 109 Landrover series III, 73 hp and the danm thing weighed about two tons, yet it could haul 4 people and full gear through the entire length of africa.

You know what would be a better idea? put a huge electric motor in the Toyota, with the rear wheel drive you could fit a huge motor in the front of that tiny car and because you have more space then then you have on a motorcycle, you can use cheaper batteries then you can on a motorcycle.

I've already watched some videos featuring cars adapted with single-cylinder motorcycle engines as small as 150cc, mostly FWD so they retained both transmissions from the motorcycle and the recipient car. I would not pick an engine smaller than 250cc for a similar project, but about 14 years ago I actually considered that it would be quite reasonable to fit the engine of a Honda CB 500 twin into a small car.
