    Is the 24hp Honda any good?
    I just bought a DC with one and somebody said they don't have much torque.

    I have a 24 Honda on a Tiger cub with a 52" deck.

    I think the torque is great, even though it isn't rated as high as say a Kawi. You will be very happy with the Honda IMO, it's a great smooth running unit.

    I also have a Tiger Cub with the 24 horse Honda. It has plenty of power and is a very smooth reliable engine. (as are all Hondas). I like the integral oil cooler and the design and placement of the air filter. Is the kawi water cooled?
