For years I had a 2s for racing around and a 4s for trail riding and riding with the family, one day I rode a buddies 426 and said this is the one do all bike for me, well I lied cause a week later I had the most perfect do-all bike in my garage.....a KTM 520 mxc, gear it down for tracks and trails, it's a blast, gear it up for Desert racing and hold on and now it's being Dualsported., it will do all very good
Started out riding 4's 'cause they're easy to learn on. Rode a buddies 250 2-stroke and found out I was faster on his bike than I was on my 500 4, so I compromised and went out and got the 360 2-smoke. More power, less weight, a nice exhaust note, and yes, that magic mid-range 'hit'.
at first when i actually looked into buying a bike...i didnt like the pinger sound....i thought the mx 4 strokes were way better....but now that i have a 2 stroke i love the sound, and the 2 strokes are a much more simple design....and they dont have the massive exhaust like 4 strokes do
