Apparently no one’s told Utah-based ATK Motorcycles that two-strokes are dead. Their 700 Intimidator features a 78bhp, 700cc two-stroke engine in a top-drawer motocross chassis. The whole thing weighs just 238lbs dry. That’s about the same as a current 450cc four-stroke motocross bike but with nearly twice the power.
Fearless fans of kick-in-the-ass power bands need to act quickly: ATK plans to produce the 2009 run of the Intimidator in limited numbers late this summer, using parts from tiny German company Maico. We’ll take ours as a Roland Sands Design Super Single please.
