No way - really?
I was misinformed, then.
I read somewhere that the AV10 reed, case inducted engine put out around 2.7 hp stock....whereas the AV88 and AV7 were around 1.5.
I rode around tonight very carefully for the first ride and the Malossi is nice. I'm still trying to figure out what exactly is going on with the Dimoby clutch. It acts almost like a 2 speed. It very strange......unlike any moped I've ridden.
It has a nice little power band around 15 mph, though.....and I can tell with a nice pipe and a bit of an upjet, will be pulling around 40 pretty nicely.
For now it's going to be my cruiser bike, with the Magnum left for the high speeds.
