2013 Yamaha YZ 125 and YZ 250. Two Strokes YES!
(LA., CA, USA )
If you have experienced the sheer pleasure of racing and/or riding a two stroke motocross bike, you would only ride a four stroke once out of curiosity. And afterwards, the four stroke would be parked in the garage where four strokes belong.
I have been fortunate enough to have owned, ridden and raced several two stroke and four stroke motorcycles.
Sadly for some riders and racers, two strokes have become scarce. And two stroke fans will agree that it is time that two stroke enthusiasts heard some good news.
Here it is..
Yamaha has released the 2013 YZ125 and YZ250 two strokes. Yes that is correct. It has been written that after hearing the desires of many for two stroke offerings, Yamaha has kept both the YZ125 and YZ250 in their line.
Years of development have earned both bikes various honors and accolades, and with that, they remain unchanged. This is not a bad thing, as the aluminum frame, Kayaba 48 millimeter SSS forks, and power valved motors that both are outfitted with make them competitive in any class.
It can only be hoped that off road motorcycling will once again be dominated by one of the best machines to ever be created.. the two stroke.
