Competition Two stroke motorcycles harken back to the turn of the last century – virtually as soon as motorcycles were invented. But the real success and progress for two strokes came in the ’60s when an East German engineer named Ernst Degner sorted out the power-wave theories behind a 2 stroke’s operating cycle and married the expansion chamber to best use the new principles he had worked out. The first truly successful two stroke motocrossers were Husqvarna, CZ and Maico, but with the acquisition of the specific knowledge of how to make a two stroke operate most efficiently, Suzuki were the first Japanese factory to achieve World Championship motocross success with the jewel-like RH250’s and later the 370’s, ridden most famously by Belgians Joel Robert and Roger De Coster.
