How fast do you want to go?

A human on a bike puts out about 1/2 hp. This can move a fit person at 20 MPH easily and a very fit person at 83MPH for a short while.

A garden lawn mower (push type) is generally in the 4 Hp bracket and a ride on in the 11 to 20 Hp bracket.

Gokarts for racing have classes where the engine size and Hp is defined by rules.

Often powered by 120 to 250 cc motor bike type engines they can do considerable speed.
