That particular engine is being tested in gas versions, and while your right it does not apply to dirt bikes, it would be viable for outboards, small cars, and big street bikes. It was just the only example I have handy of 2-stroke technology that would be able to meet emissions designed to eliminate 2-strokes. I know Vespa is selling 50cc 2-stroke DI scooters in Europe that meet our current standards for pollution, but they didn't bother bringing their 2-strokes over here as the standards are about to go up again.

I agree, they certainly could do it. The problem the mx motorcycle manufacturers face IMOP is that they just don't sell as many as the 4 strokes, so why dump the R&D into a product that no one is buying.

Just think you could run your MX'er on Bio-Diesel and have a true rice burnner!

yeah except when that company was going in the toilet you guys were laughing at me for riding motocross on a YZ426F...because, if I remember correctly, "thumpers are too heavy and slow". Funny how the masses either learn or follow each other. BTW....I still love thumpers too. Just a funny lesson on society that I learned first hand......
