Two-strokes are dying.

Two stroke motors serve their purpose for cheap and light applications such as scooters, but the cheap label no longer applies if you are referring to a high performance 2-stroke. Can anyone in their right mind call a NSR-500 cheap? As 4-stroke technology improves, any advantage that the 2-stroke had is fading even faster. Why are many of the major manufacturers switching to 4-strokes for the 2002 GP series? Why are many motocross manufacturers switching to 4-strokes? It is time to stop living in the past; the fastest will survive, and unless many more breakthroughs occur in 2-stroke technology, it will continue to be a dying breed.
