I have had the thought of using an industrial diesel engine (16 hp. air cooled) and a belt torque converter system from a racing kart on a small motorcycle frame.
As to reducing frontal area I made some aero handle bars for a triathlon bicycle so I can lean on my forearms. Motorcycle bars are also 7/8" diameter. It might take some time to get used to the different throttle position.
