They have an 08 model coming out.

Where's your proof on this claim?

The press release they put out last year claimed 2007 would be the last model year for the 2 stroke bikes.

From a press release issued by American Honda:

American Honda recently advised dealers that its current line of two-stroke motocross machines will be discontinued after the 2007 model year.

“This decision reflects Honda’s commitment to environmental leadership in the markets in which we compete,” stated Honda Motorcycle Division Senior Vice President, Ray Blank.

“U.S. market trends and the success of Honda’s revolutionary Unicam™ four stroke motocross and off-road machines, bolstered by the 2007 CRF150R, make this a logical evolution of our product line.”

I actually saw this on a website, but you definately have the right to be skeptical. I'll see if I can find the site again.

I am pretty partial to my bike, but I really don't mind that they are discontinuing the line..

It certainly won't affect my life in the least bit. My 2 Stroke Honda will not be discontinued.
