The 700cc motor goes in sidehack racers too, it's supposed to be way mellow with tons of torque. They say that a two-stroke single starts losing efficiency after about six 'undred cee cees, and becomes a gas guzzling toad. I don't think so, but that's what THEY say.

501's are cool, I imagine the Maisch family isn't to impressed with a four stroke.

Yeah. It might equal an 80's era 360 2-popper in performance.

It is supposed to have 82 horsepower, so it might be just a tad faster than that 80's era 360 2-popper. Just a tad.

Just funnin'. It might be faster but the 2stroke will go farther cheaper. I will never buy into these short-life 4 strokes.

Hah, wait to you see our expose' on how much it costs to own and ride a newer 450cc Japanese MX bike. A few of the shops have coined the phrase "Throw Away Bikes". And 250's are even worse!

Guess we'll have to start stripping down street bikes like the old days, if you want something that will last more than 15 hours before a $2,500.00 top end job.
