					125 2-cycle

To begin with I want to talk about the 125cc 2-cycle dirt bike. Now there are people out there who love 2-cycle

and won't ride a 4-cycle bike, but that doesn't matter now. I am just trying to relay a few facts. The 125 is usually

set up to ride like a bigger bike, with a higher seat, and bigger tires. Many people think these are great bikes for

up and coming riders who may be young and can benefit from the higher seat, but not too high and the excellent

amount of power, but not to powerful. This also works great for older riders because the bike is big enough for full

grown riders, but is not so powerful that it may be a chore to ride.

250 4-cycle

Next is the 250 4-stroke. This is much like the 125, but a smoother ride. 2-cycle bikes run at a much higher rev

than 4-strokes which cause them to be more powerful at less cc's. Thus the 4-cycle 250 is going to perform like a

125 much have a longer power band. So this would be good for racing or riding fast for a long amount of time

whereas the 125 would have been better for trail riding or a lot of top end power.

250 2-cycle

Now the 250 2-stroke is a favorite of many riders out there, and especially the older riders. This bike has great

top end power and also a good deal of lower end power. Great for racing and trail riding, it is still the preferred

bike for freestyle likers due to its lightweight make-up. This bike is for the advanced rider due to the touchy

throttle power and it generally high seat height and big tires making it a little more difficult for shorter riders to ride

when the bike is stock.

450 4-cycle

Finally the 450 4-cycle. The 450 is a newer idea that just came around in the last decade or two and is gradually

taking all the glory these days. All professional supercross and motorcross riders are riding 450's due to their

immense power at top end and low end. Unlike the 250 2-cycle the 450 is able to run it gears way longer and is

thus a lot less work to ride while racing due to the minimal amount of shifting required. The only thing I have to

say about the 450 is that it is awfully have and thus more awkward to handle if you like riding trails in the woods,

and thus for that I would suggest a 125/250 2-stroke since they are lighter than their counter parts.
