Hey everyone...talked with my local HONDA dealer today...Looks like HONDA is jumping into the ring with full on FOUR-STROKE motocross machine for 2001. According to the certified Honda mechanics, they tell me they are soon going into Honda school to learn about the NEVER BEFORE BEEN SEEN killer new HONDA 4 STROKE thumper engine....official details on cc displacement are being kept hush for now..but not for long...as this machine is supposed to hit motocross tracks in full production for 2001, in a full on CR aluminum motocross chassis..no holds barred here! The power is supposed to be unheard of!! Oh, and apparently it weighs ONLY 8 pounds more than the 2001 CR250(which is lightest in it's class!!) Hello! I can't wait!! You can check this baby out and actuall listen to it at www.honda.com !! It sounds ferocious yet smooth!! Awaiting the new HONDA beast, THUNDER-RED!!
