My wondering has led me to this post- Seems like everyone wants more HP on their machine. Does that mean the lower HP machines performs less than the higher HP machines? in what noticable ways ? for instance, one Scag Cub comes with a selection of four engines: 19 Kawa, 20 Koh, 21 Kawa, 23 Kawa, 24 Hond. Would riding the 19 feel like a 4 cyl car in comparison to the 24 HP? I must admit - I dont have any ZTR riding experience. so I have to assume there is a lot I dont know yet. But at this point I am trying to make sense out of this using engineering logic.
