I'd rather a full bottle in front of me than a full frontal lobotomy.

Not to bad at all. ;D
2 strokes have made a massive resurgence in off-road racing the last few years.

Remind me ford, Are any of those bikes Japanese ? ::) ;)

Geez,I don't really know TMKIWI.Are any of them Italian?  :P
If by Japanese you mean many of the parts they use or the machines they copied,then they all are.  :D
The better question might be,where are the Maico's ?  ;D Tee.hee,hee.Just had to throw that out there as it's been awhile.The Maico faithful seem to be oddly silent these days  ;)

Was just pointing out the fact that the Japs have dropped the ball when it comes to 2 stroke development. :(

Whilst the Euros are continuing development. ;D

Excellent news.Anyone want guess how 2T Husabergs will sell here in North America?

Ford, as an act of kindness we at the world Maico command centre have removed all references to Maico from entering your hamlet.We thought it only fair that you live out your days comfortable with your delusions. ;D

Lol,yeah,I know.Yamaha could have something in the works,they did it before with the YZF's. The YZ's are as modern as any 2t out there right now but the plastic keeps them looking dated.

And I appreciate it.It looks like I may finally be able to remove my tinfoil hat 8)

I'm betting the Bergs do well.There is already a fair amount of interest around here.My local shop got one in last week but I haven't yet found the time to get in.
In the same way as the Berg 4t's,they are the same as the KTM's-only different.Suspension is different as are a few other things.Just enough so you can't say it's just a KTM in a disguise.
I like the colors as well-sort of like a reverse RM.

Really ? :o

NO, 0 , Nadda , Zip updates since 06.

While it is a good bike the euro brands have had more done to them just updated plastics.

Just saying.

The 2012 ktm 250  puts out about 3-4 horses more than the frozen in 2000  "2012" yz 250
seems more than plastics have been getting updates over the last 12 years,

Like what for instance?Though not updated,the Yamaha is still recognized as having the best suspension in the biz hands down.As far as everything else on the bikes go,what have the Euro's come up with technology wise,or in any other area that the Yamaha's don't have?I'm willing to admit something is better if it is,and I'm not a Yamaha fanboy,I just don't see anything new as compared to a YZ-or an old CR,KX or RM for that matter.

KTM's have always had the motor of doom.My 125 SX put out more 2 more HP than the Jap 125's in 02.My buddys 03 250 SX had the most HP of any 250 of any year stock if I remember correctly.In subsequent years they toned it down as it was almost unrideable.
They were usually making the most HP back then and since.Nothing has changed and it's not because of any any  new 2t euro technology.If you can give an example of their magic widget,I'll eat my words  :)
