2011 Maico Beasts
British-based Maico are apparently releasing a dirt-dredging, fire-breathing range of two strokes for 2011. They are producing some majorly overhauled dirt bikes including 250cc, 320cc, 380cc, 500cc and 700cc! The 500cc and 100hp 700cc will surely only be for the riders with a few screws loose as they will have some serious arm wrenching capabilities.
It will be interesting to see how good they really are when they hit the showroom floors, but it sounds like they are about to unveil something quite unique and ahead of the 'rest of the pack'. They are now linked to some formula 1 manufacturer who are helping them with aircraft type materials to use for the frame and engine parts.. sounds sick!
It's great to see companies like this channeling their efforts into two strokes. They obviously believe in them otherwise they wouldn't bother.
Watch this 'Maico space'..
