Rather considering the ICE's peak power and the motor's continuous rated output, consider your ICE's power curve.

When accelerating, your power would be lower just after a gear change and highest near your shift point, which probably isn't at redline. Look at the power output in the middle of that revband. This may give you a more realistic ballpark for your motor spec.
