Really there is not a 125 class anymore! The 4 stroke 250's are allowed to run with 125's. If you ride a 125 a 250 will smoke you. Add the fact there are very few available as new anymore.

yeah you might as well learn on a 4-stroke 2-strokes are becoming a sideshow in serious racing

maybe a sideshow in our current class structure, but as a new racer/rider , you'll be alot happier on upkeep, repair costs if/when you rebuild... plus they smell better ... major manufacturers made a big mistake pushing 4t on the MX world ... they're too loud, expensive, difficult to maintain,heavy ?, etc. When EFI, and DI tech finds it's way into the 2t world, Honda,and the AMA will have to re-write the rules again. Like they did in the early 21st century...trying to kill off 2t ! If a 250cc MX 4t had to compete against a 250 MX 2t, with riders of equal skill level, similar mods,etc. ...which would likely prevail ?
ALOT of offroad racers prefer converted 2t MX bikes, or purpose built 2t offroad bikes... just sayin. RM125s,YZ125s,Husky CRs,GasGas XC125s,and KTM125SX are all great bikes to race MX with , at any level. Ask the schoolboys @Loretta Lyn's
