DOHC 450sx motor...when?

Recommended Posts

Never I hope. DOHC engines have too much weight up high and are usually designed to rev much higher than I care to use. I like long stroke , torquey engines. Not revvey 2 stroke wannabes.

IMHO,

I agree with dwight. If they bring the DOHC into the bigger RFS lineup, I sure hope they only offer them in SX versions.

Townley is testing it right now. It will be raced in the MXGP's in the 05 season. No word on the release but possibly 06. I wouldn't hold my breath though as KTM won't throw out their current motor until the new one is significantly better.

From what I've heard the DOHC will only be used in the SX lineup.

I can't imagine KTM changing the e/mxc motor from it's current design it is to good the way it is.
