Heard they have been testing

and racing it in Europe for a while,

with good results 

Must work well to release all

that info 

Guess the 2 strokes aint 

dying after all ...but will the

other brands build anything ?

For 2018, the only FI two-stroke North America gets is the 250 XC-W, and in limited quantities.

I'm really surprised it has taken this long for someone to inject a 2-stroke bike.  I'm guessing it is still premix, but would be cool if it was oil injected as well.  They mention considerably better fuel economy, I wonder about that.  It really has not proved to be the case in 4 stroke bikes.

Its oil injected.  The press release mentions no more mixing of oil / gas.

Carbureted two-strokes scavenge the exhaust with air / fuel mix which wastes some fuel.  With TPI you can start the scavenging process with fresh air and wait a bit before squirting the fuel in.

You're so glad they didn't release a 300 to the states YET.... 

 

I mean itd be real difficult to put a big bore on the 250 and make it a 300...

I was sweating bullets as it was buying an all new design 300 XC.  No way I'm coming anywhere near a KTM FI two stroke for several years.

250/125... apples/oranges. Although I don't want an efi smoker. I too like light weight and the simplicity of a carb. Had a 4- stroke for a bit, didn't like it. Also a long time 125 guy. Fun fun!

Just another way to make racing expensive with a bike they won't be able to afford to maintain.  The fuel injected two stroke is a death to racing...

Its just a different fuel delivery method.... still no cam, chain, or elaborate head. Two strokes will still be lighter and easier to work on. I don't know what the price is. Buy a YZ250, they won't change for another 10years.

And 10 years later, it'll still be competitive.

I see issues coming. And yes, a smoker should be carbed....yz would be a staple for many years to come

Maybe so. My point is, there will still be a carb'd smoker for die-hards, at least in the short term.

That doesn't even make sense.  I have a KTM that will break soon enough to keep it company.  

The YZ isn't broken, the piston / rings are worn.  If I have to explain to you that those are normal wear items, perhaps you should consider taking up another hobby, like knitting.
