What engine is this?

Can you identify this engine?

Bonus points for what years it was used, actual CC's, and horsepower rating.

Makis, SubSailor, Madbuyer, B.miller123, Kwtoxman, Duckhunter, Stig, Nobody, Wingnutt: I'm betting you guys know right off the bat. - give the others a chance!

Looks very similar to engine in either my Honda Ruckus or Honda Fit...hmmmm

Haha...kidding, but I know the answer.

2001 SP1 (sold)
2004 SP2 (properly stored)
2012 Ruckus (stolen)
2015 Grom (under construction)

Weyrauch pronounced (Y Rock)...Rock for short.

I'm with SubSailor on this one...

That's the ever first RC211V engine ever introduced to the press.

Ok, you want something harder, I think this might be kinda hard.
I've got three pictures, each a little more revealing than the last.
Here's the first picture...

BTW, Yes SubSailor, Makis - you guys nailed it.
It's also what Nicky Hayden won his 2006 MotoGP championship on.
