There’s a fortune to be made in Hollywood differentiating between two- and four-stroke motorcycle noises, or is there? Nobody seems to care. In this, the first of the Sylvester Stallone Rambo installments, our misunderstood hero is chased into the wilderness aboard a vintage Yamaha XT250 that sounds like a YZ, by Brian Dennehy in a police cruiser that’s decidedly second-hand by the time he’s done with it. This ain’t over man…

Anyway, I guess it’s better for your thumper to sound like a Single than for it to sound like the wailing four-cylinders in these guys’ DRs in Black Rain. Then again, I am all for artistic license.
