What is 'CC' of a bike? How does it matter?

CC means Cubic Centimeter, It basically denotes the Volume of Cylinder, whether it may be a car or Bike.Technically it's the Bore Diameter and the stroke length of the cylinder.If a car as 1.8L Engine it's nothing but 1800 cc..Hence More the cc, more the power nd torque.

CC is the Cubic Liters of the Engine. We calculate the bore diameter and Cylinder size and multiply them the result we get t is the CC (cubic centimeter of the Engine) 2.0 L that means is 2000 CC Engine. The total volume we get is 2000 Cubic centimeter.

Sometimes the compression volume is in the top of the piston rather than between the cylinder head, Also on some engines with flat topped or very slightly domed piston (2 strokes) go right up to the end of the cylinder bore, the combustion volume or chamber is actually in the cylinder head. When I used to race motorcycles the piston top rim stopped level with the top edge of the cylinder and the piston crown was raised to increase the compression ratio, this resutled in having to machine deeper valve pockets in the piston crown.

Generally cc of a bike or car depends on the manufacturer....that how much power it incorporate to the engine. it also determines the fuel efficiency of the vehicle.unlike Suppose take example of a 200 cc bike..  let us take ktm rc 200...NO other bikes can't match the grunt of this bike... yes the fact is also that torque is also increased by increasing the cc of the vehicle..but it fully depends on the manufacturer . The answer i have given is on the general sense...

CC of bike indicates volume of engine cylinder in Cubic centimeter, More the CC more will be engine size and more power

Cc=cylinder length × cylinder area \ no of cylinders

CC stands for "Cubic Centimeter". It basically measures the swept volume of the cylinder. The more the CC more fuel will be able to burn hence providing more power.

CC=VOLUME OF CYLINDER/NO.OF CYLINDER

Cc- cubic centimeter,its the volume swept by the piston from BDC(bottom dead center) to TDC(top dead center) it can be calculated if we know stroke length(distance between TDC to BDC) and bore diameter.

More the Cc less the mileage n more power delivered. (because it consume more fuel)

Less the Cc more mileage n less power delivered.(it consumes less fuel)

In car and some bikes have more than one cylinder for that number of cylinders should be multipled to get correct Cc

Cubic centimetre. It is mainly used for displacement of the bore dia

Cc stands for cubic capacity of an engine cylinder.the amount or volume of air compresses inside the cylinder from BDC - TDC+ CV is nothing but cc of an engine eg:-endeavour 2.2L means 2200 CC .it really matters bcoz as more compression of air results in combustion which results in more power and torque respectively.
