Couldn't find anything via search so I figured I'd post this up.
Taken from MCN, June 2009
A few snippets:R&D departments in Europe, Asia and North America are arriving at the same conclusion: everything you know about two-strokes is wrong, and their revenge against the four-stroke is imminent.It’s only a matter of time before the truth shows through the four-stroke greenwash...Everyone, except Honda, is harbouring significant two-stroke thoughts...the technical reasons for the change is nonsense. They are all excuses for a business plan which is coming from Honda.I've always admired effecient design, whether talking engines, watches, or anything else that peaked my interest. Evinrude looks to be dumping their entire 4 stroke line up, although I haven't seen confirmation of this. KTM is poised to release a FI 2 stroke 250.[Aprilia] The Italian holder of 33 two-stroke world-titles has twice since 2000 come close to reviving production of its iconic RS250. First as an air-assisted direct injection 250, and again in 05/06 as a 110-124bhp two-stroke 600. Ultimately it plumped for the safer option of diversifying it four-stroke middleweights, but says the door remains open.
I'd love to see the resurgence of the 2 stroke.
