Man, without 125 two strokes that leaves nothing in between an 85cc and a 250cc. I know Honda makes the CRF150r, but it's little, like a pit bike. I want a full size bike that weighs less than 230 pounds. Why can they not get these bikes to weigh less? I understand the emissions problem with 2 strokes, but four strokes need to trim some fat.
- Thanks Chris.
I think the more they try and 'trim the fat' on the new four strokes, the more high performance the bikes become... therefore creating this whole scenario of high performance / high maintenance four stroke engines. The four stroke engine will always be heavier than an equivalent sized two stroke engine.
Hmmmm... maybe instead of trying to create a lighter 4 stroke engine, why don't they work on the new, lower emission two stroke engine? It seems to me that the companies that are still producing and improving two stroke dirt bikes are ultimately going to come out on top. The demand is most definitely there!
