    "WHY" ??? - Why would you want to compare a motorcycle with a motor car ?  :027:

    Anyway, Isn't the Ford Focus 125 BHP 3 cyclinder petrol engine 1000 cc not 1215 cc ?

    ( Also, the Trophy engine is 1215cc not 1200 cc   :007: )



    No.  Its 999cc. :015:

    I'm not actually comparing, Im highlighting the difference.  I could drive my car for several years without so much as a drop of oil being added (if I was that way inclined), but a bike is a completely different beast. I wouldn't run mine outside of the official service recommendations for fear of something breaking.
    In addition, there are far more moving parts in a car than a bike.  Again, just a thought.  My impression as a bike owner on and off since 1981 is that they need a lot more care than a car.  Much as I love working on the bike :821:
