Re: Two-strokes are dying.

Actually, Colin Edwards' RC51 has so many trick parts that the HRC boys says it costs roughly the same as an NSR500 (about $1million). Nevertheless, 4 stroke technology is accelerating while 2stroke technology is stagnating. Look at where Formula 1 is going (8-900 hp fom 3litre engines) and you can see that 4 stroke bikes have a future. Esthetically 4 stroke bikes behave right and sound just right, both silky and macho. 2 strokes sound

dinky (waaahhh-put-put-put) and are real nervous and unreliable when highly tuned. 4 stokes are a safe bet, like it or not.
