Well yes - you will need some sort of a differential.
You could get around this by only driving one of the rear wheels, but
from my experience this is less stable and prone to fine steering
Try getting a differential from a small tractor lawnmower etc. and
Yes, a 125cc motor will do fine.
Best of Luck,
