2 stroke related...

Not Kawi specific. But if anyone didn't see this yet. It's a good read.

Hmmm. This is what some of us have been preaching for a long time in here.

 

 

The thing that really caught my attention:

 

 

 

But, even though a 250 four-stroke won the 2014 Australian Championship (Luke Clout on a Yamaha YZ250F), the factory team managers wanted the two-strokes banned. Why? Because they were faster, lighter and cheaper than the typical 250 four-stroke. And, while they didn’t defeat the four-strokes for the title, they packed the field as privateers flocked to the easier to maintain and cheaper two-strokes. Thus, the factory teams felt that it was unfair to allow a bike that was faster to race in the same class with their 250 four-strokes.

Uh, they want you to buy a 250F..... tomorrow, so you can race 250 class too. 👍
