Could a BMW K100 engine be airworthy?

Hi everyone!

I think Hegger dynamics is the only company selling a roadable aircraft, 2 axis.
It s a current yamaha quad with what it seems to be a centrigugal clutch for the prop, I guess
they put the engine on neutral for flight.

I would like to try something like that with a BMW K100 engine. Maybe It works with too much RPM to put the engine on neutral?

Can I try to fly with the second or third gear on to reduce the RPM so that I don t have to use a reduction gear saving a bit weight?

Thank you very much for your answers!
