Its power and torque curves make it easier to reach speeds not so unsuitable to regular traffic as those stationary engines.

Though I wouldn't recomend you use that engine for a project like this because the carbs are too small (easy replacement of course but...) and the cam shaft is too wimpy.
Besides those makeshift adaptations of small motorcycle engines around 125cc to 250cc into cars which have been performed on Latin American countries, it's also not so uncommon to see cars with their stock engines being adapted with motorcycle carburettors as they're cheaper and nowadays it's easier to find them brand-new and at a reasonable price than a proper automobile carburettor.
