For power, the new engine was bored out 6mm compared to a Scout, bringing displacement to 1,203cc, and then thoroughly, conventionally hot-rodded. Valve sizes were increased, and compression bumped to 12.5:1, while cam timing is more aggressive. Throttle bores have been enlarged to 60mm. Peak power is claimed to be around 120 hp, and the torque curve shown at the press announcement is broad, with a slight double hump: an initial torque peak at a low 3,500 rpm, the slightest of valleys, and then a second peak at 6,000 rpm with 85 pound-feet. Transmitting this power is a new F.C.C. slipper clutch, with a dual-acting ramp system: It self-tightens during acceleration, slips on back-torque, allowing light springs.
