Default This is a sad day for 2 strokes

     

Well I was very excited to see the new kawasaki models! The all new completely redesigned KX250F with the aluminum frame. Then the sweet looking alum frame KX450F. They really look trick. But my heart sank when I read that Kawasaki has discontinued the KX125.

I feel sad, but the KX125 is now gone, no 2006 KX125. Then, the KX250 is just a BNG bike. Plus, Bubba's poor results will surely have him switch to the four stroke. Plus, brett metcalfe's poor results on the YZ125. It looks like it has finally happened. I'm not happy about, but what are ya gonna do.

Somebody stick a fork in 2 strokes, because they're done.

Well they sure are not done as far as 250cc supercross goes, but I do agree they are on the way out. The KX250, however is not just BNG. It was all new last year, and just fine tuning was the right thing for it this year.

He flies on the KX250, how can you say "poor results"? I agree that the 2 strokes days are numbered, but you can't say Bubba did poorly, in Supercross he managed to beat some of the fastest riders in history, and in the nats, he just needs some seasoning. I think if you took all the riders in the 250 class and switched them from 2 to 4 stroke and vice versa........ you would see the same results.

250 two-strokes will endure as long as supercross does.

As for the tiddler class, I will miss it . . . .

You bet DCox, I will miss the 125s as well.........but when i go to the dealer and choose between the 250f and a 125, I will take home the 250f. However if I have to choose between a 250 2 stroke and a 450.......... the jury will be out longer than a Michael Jackson trial.

Let me ask you this Silver_Fox, do you think bubba has had good results? Do you think bubba is happy with his peformances so far in the series?

I'm sorry but Bubba has had poor results SO FAR this national season. He'll figure it out, but as of the first 3 rounds he has had bad results. Sure he flies, but I think it works him to death trying to run that thing with the 450s. Heck, he is 10th in overall points. He needs to work on some things, and everyone knows the first thing he needs is to get on a four stroke.

not really, the won the 125's on a 125. not a 250f, He likes the preference of a 2 stroke, thats why he rode it instead of a kx250f, hes faster on them, He's in a slump, everybody goes through them, even the best.

I think his results have nothing to do with 2 or 4 stroke, it's mental and he also dealt with injury. Switching to an unfamiliar bike is not the cure.
