Horsepower = Torque X RPM/5252 torque can be developed at low RPM's (more displacement, more torque) but Horsepower increases with RPM's. Some engines like the V-Rod don't really come into their own until the RPM's really get up there because they have low torque and Rev high therefore their power is derived from RPM's instead of torque. The standard old V-twin gets it's power from torque thus develops it's power in the lower range of RPM's. Like HIPPO said you can have low-end torque or High-end Horsepower. If you can figure a way to get both you'll be a very rich man.
