i wanna know what was the horsepower rating....

because in asia road racing 115cc mopeds already producing 16hp-18hp....that was with SOHC-2overhead valve engine.....

take a simple calculation....(16/115)X250::34hp++ still way short of 40hp++ by 2strokers 125gp spec...

BTW..i still wish honda or other manufaturer team could crank the power up to par with old 125gp bike.... :)

As a long-time lover of littleweight small displacement bikes, I can only hope that this someday trickles down to a real 250cc sportbike for the street. Doubt it, though.

shame about that piggin' din over the top of the bike noise, looks like it could be a good season, but they will have to go some to beat the most exciting race class of the previous years

Is it Honda that made them change to 4 strokes ? Why is everyone so against the Big H ? They won on 2 strokes ... in every class ... they won on 4 strokes ... certainly it involves more than 1 manufacturer decision. They have the power to be 1st out the box with this new class, so what, eat my Honda shorts !

sounds just like the 250 mono "morowaki" 125gp wannabee's we have had to put up with that share our 125gp grids in Aus....Sad ( really, expected ) news is that they are were not even close to competitive with even a club level 125GP bike until they magically became 280-290cc and had a host of other mods incorporated into their eligability rules....and the noise...geese farts during a full-flock flyover....

leave 4 stroke mx engines in the chook chasers...javascript:insertTextCursor('comment',%20':?')

Sure, the 250's may be cheap to produce, but to produce a fast and competitive 250 single, is going to require some serious coin, just ask KTM. Then ask them why they're also continuing to develop and manufacture new 2-strokers.. No doubt Honda are throwing everything they have at this new project.

I can only hope that Aprilia have something neatly up their sleeve. While I'm gutted that the 2-Strokes are to be no more, it'll seriously rub Honda's face in it should they lose first time out.
