+1, I'd like to see somebody put that thing on a scale.

A CRF150F weighs 236 lbs! Could a 700cc two stroke really be lighter?

Are these going to be street legal in the USA?

They look like a Honda XR/CR. If it didnt say Maico down the side I would be looking for the Honda logo.

I would love to go ride in that desert where they took the video !

No kidding! HONDA should buy MAICO and start selling these monsters worldwide!!! Just think, then parts would be available anywhere! And they would be less expensive! A WIN WIN!!!

Wow, incredible achievement. I have a KDX 200 2-stroke, it will be the last 2 stroke I'll ever own, I'm done with mixing gas, but for the hardcore riders out there with money to blow these would be a lot of fun, but are these very practical for most people today?

I can see the db levels being a serious problem in all but desert environments. I love the smell but the ping/scream of a 2 stroke is one of the most obnoxious things you can hear.

No way.
My '94 KTM 440 EXC was ~62 hp, and would go 65-70 miles on 3.43 gallons.
Ridden hard it wouldn't get 20mpg.

ATK's been doing it for a few years now, since around 2004 with the 700cc Intimidator.

I would bet a 500 cc two stroke would much closer to 40 if that.
I have a 200 cc two stroke that only goes 60 miles on 2.5 gallons of gas.

Also this is a UK street version not an USA version and the 700 is MX only.
Also it is only for the 500 cc and smaller.
Nothing is as it seems.
