Would a 2 stroke have a good torque range for gymkhanas? I would have thought a 4 stroke might have a more useful torque band to minimize gear changes? Or would a 2 stroke’s higher revs be an advantage?
2strokes are very popular, mainly NSR250s etc but with wide bars and fairings cut down.
The 2stroke enduro bikes have bags of torque when the cc is upped above 250cc and they weigh probs 25% less than an equivalently powered 4stroke, they also have less rotating mass in the engine internals which allow them to change direction quicker too I believe
my 100cc 2stroke bike literally cleaned up compared to all the other bikes in our session on both GP8s and the full gymkhana course and that was against 250cc 4stroke supermotos and proper big grunty bikes too!
