If true.....It is the coolest news I have heard in quite some time. Gawd I hope this ends up being true.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Yeah, a "triple crown" at three races in each of 3 zones, with a runoff at Indiana at the end.


Who's got 125cc "National Champion" for 2018????? I'm more excited for this than any other racing all year.

If true, I hope we'll be able to watch those races online. Coolest thing since they've left the scene back in '04-'05.

Now we just need to have equal displacement in the 250 class and they're golden.

Can we skip Supercross? Better yet bring them indoors.

Excellent idea gents! But there is one manufacturer who would not be happy with this setup.

I blame Honda.

Zero Fs given.

I'm so tired of hearing that the manufacturers don't want to go back to 2-strokes... give me a break. If Honda doesn't want to build a 2-stroke, then they can neglect that class and concentrate on their 4-strokes. Bring on the races!

There will be 3 unhappy OEMs.

There are 4 readily available 125s in the USA:

Yamaha
KTM
Husqvarna
TM (probably have to order it...but you can get it)

Yep and they can all go fuck themselves in my opinion.

Don't like it? Here's an idea, start producing them again and maybe just maybe they will sell.

And 4 out of 4 are really good bikes.

A 125 series would be freaking amazing. I was at Unadilla this year and you always new when Gared Steinke was coming. The roar of the crowd every lap was impressive. People still love two strokes...whether you ride one or not....

I agree screw Honda kawie n Suzuki they don't make one to f'ing bad. The brand swm the old italy cagiva/husky has a new 125 mxer and 85 coming out as 2019 models.

If beta n sherco made thier 125 enduro into mx models that be a few more.

MX Sports should have done this years ago.

How the dirt bike industry can continue to ignore the popularity of the two stroke is beyond me. It was stupid to get rid of them at the pro level in the first place and this sport has suffered heavily for it.
