250 two-strokes allowed in EMX2 this season!
The FIM have allowed 250 two-strokes to race against 250 four-strokes in the EMX250 class for 2017.
It means a cost-effective route for privateers who want to impress or another opportunity for those that just like to ride a two-stroke on a big stage and in a competitive class!
The release stated: “EMX250: motorcycles of Cat. I, Group A1, over 175cc and up to 250cc for 2-stroke and 4-stroke engines.”
With countries like Denmark and Canada already using these rules it appears the FIM have decided to implement it as well. It will be interesting to see how it affects the results and if any of the top riders will choose the two-stoke route!
