    Looks like a fun bike for those muddy trails. Thing is wouldn't take long for someone to say, it needs a 6th gear. I will stay with the TW

    Hopefully my knees/legs/reflexes will still be there when I get around to buying one of those.

    I think they are way cool.

    They are way cool indeed. The local moto shop in Gettysburg had one on display for the longest time. Great looking machine with one minor problem...it suffers from the skyscraper-like seat height that most modern DS bikes have. If I was 6'4" though...

    The other problem is the seat is almost as wide as a 2"X4".

    Bike in video looks to be 2 stroke. Bike in ad looks to be 4 stroke. First video looks and sounds like 2 stroke, second video sounds like 4 stroke?????????

    They make both. They have a 450cc 4 stroke as well as a 250 and 300cc 2 stroke. I believe these are all based off ktm's

    Oh, so they are expensive to fix, and they need to be fixed often.

    The 2 stroke is powered by a gas gas engine and is not street legal.
