all japanese car manufacturer makes 3-4 cylinders 1 litter (60 engines that reach 6000 rpm...they even make it on diesel version and also with automatic tranny..however on the long run ( 5 year old from new) water cooled system it'sn't reliable unless extensive and periodic parts replacement (water pump seal, hoses, belt, termostat, heat exchange, liquid mixture,...)if you check the post area you will find plenty aatv on duty with more than 20 years old....that's because it's symplicity and chipper replacement component (generic chains, sprocker,...)direct automatic drive instead of the variable speed belt system will be nice...........for this aplication, on the long run i still choose the air cooled engine over the water cooled ones.....
