Matt, you are overlooking a key point.

It is true the long stoke has more leverage, but the short stroke has more piston area. Hence the short stroke piston is exerting more force on it's shorter lever arm (assuming displacement is kept constant).

The change is directly proportional, so all else being equal both engines will produce the same torque.
