I dont think the riders would race on them as they get spat off too often (ask Schwantz!). The engines dont last either so thats another issue although obviously they cost less that the current 4 strokes

Yes!!bring back the 2 stroke GP we can see an equal performance between satelite and factory more rider fight for the last time I remember the satelite bike won a GP is about 7years ago..

yep, bring back 500 pocket rocket pigs, lets sort the men from the boys, wonder how long some youngsters would last? lorenzo would hate them i reckon.
i have suggested here before that they should have to use old style rockets for at least one race a season, it would remind some of the riders how spoilt they are with flashy clutches, traction control and easy to ride electronic controls.
stick old boots on them as well, ahh think of the fun as some folk try a smart move and then wonder how they ended up on their bums at 180 mph!!!
they can keep the new leathers, some would need them more than others, collin ed, might even win a race, only he and vali have any time on pocket rockets, some of the youngsters not even sat on one before, let alone raced one, nice to see a youngster up for a challenge!!!

re: “They should bring these back."

let go of the dream.

however, apparently the domestic MX series in Canada has seen the error of their ways and readmitted 250 2-strokes for 2013.

don't look for such epiphany to occur in MotoGP.
