A 900cc twin would be a good engine -- if it has a long-ish stroke, it could be quite "torquey". The old "airhead" BMW engine worked very nicely in the 800-900cc displacment, and the torque output was very good. With variable valve timing and a (mild?) turbo, it could be pretty sweet. You also get less internal friction, etc.
