New for 2014 the hybrid stroke, at 2t and electric motor driven dirt bike. (From a forum in Zimbabwe) could this be the way we are heading?

Aren't KTM going to bring out a Husky (KTM) so if don't want a orange or blue you can get a Red or white one (whatever color huskys come in!)

Looks like the sx bikes will have Air Shocks, no more springs.

Hopefully they have some major flaw as I've just bought my 13 300

I have it on good authority that they have terrain sensing lasers ( insert pinky finger in corner of mouth now, 'LASERS').

This will have the opposite effect as normal suspension. The tyres will only touch the ground every so often and the system knows what you are going to do before you even do it ( any one seen Red Dwarf ?) as the system knows what you are going to do you don't even have to get on the bike because it knows what you will do so why bother. The system will tell you you conquered a nasty hill and had a great time so riding is pointless.

That's just the start.

Pft, 2013 models are already out of date. Once you see the unobtainium used in the engine to save weight, well actually it weighs less than air, so by having an engine inside the frame the bike is actually lighter than having said bike with out an engine.

Your 2013 model also runs out of petrol, the 14' model uses creek water and sapplings to power the new eco tech engine. Fuel injection, carby's gone, direct injection ie feed the sappling into the hole and off she go's. No air filters to clean either. Can't dust it. No moving parts.
No starter motor to not work, it just goes.

The list just goes on.

I'm done now.

On note of DI 2t's. Isn't this taking something that people largely enjoy for its simplicity and making it more complicated?

Unless they figured out how to make a 2t with a wet sump, there would always have to be an injector where the carb used to be to lubricate the sump, piston and cylinder. This probably means there would just about always have to be the same amount of fuel delivered to achieve sufficient lubrication through the rev range just as the carb did? If this is so, wouldn't the same amount of fuel be lost through the ports with FI/DI as the carby did?

Yea there is DI/FI on 2t outboard motors, but this has largely been used to increase fuel efficiency and reduce emissions. No real focus on how the power is delivered like you need on a dirt bike.

Just a thought.

Rotax have been building direct injection twin cylinder two strokes for Snowmobiles. Claims reduced fuel, oil, emissions, smoke along with increased performance. Main advantage is fuel is added near the top of the pistons stroke once the exhaust valve is closed. Disadvantage is it needs a pump to provide oil to the bottom end.

Does rotax make 2t engine for any bike manufacturers?
