Four stroke would be the best for city riding. Chances are, you’ll never get out of second gear. Two strokes.....too much to explain why not.stillatwork said:Interested as to everyone’s opinions. Let’s take NYC for instance. Or any major city LA, etc. What motor would be more suitable for city riding conditions?
2 strokes. They are noisy, especially any exhaust mods you do to them. It’s going to run hot as hell sitting in traffic without any airflow. Terrible fuel mileage, are you pre-mixing or oil injected? Longevity of the top end on a 2 stroke is shorter. Doesn’t make much power down low, unless you rev the piss out of it to get going, increased clutch wear. Even if you change the gearing, now you’re limited on the top end. The four stroke is the way to go for that application, you can crawl in first gear, and have plenty of torque at a moments notice to shoot the gaps. I have ridden a two stroke in heavy traffic before, here comes the powerband......shit, cars slowing down, now you’re in the back seat. It’s a pain in the ass, I’d rather sit on an air cooled V Twin in traffic, during the summer, wearing leather.stillatwork said:Millermatic please explain if you could!
DR350 would be a great choice.irk miller said:I rode a CB360 when I lived in Philly. It was a great bike to ride around that town. Enough power to move around and small enough to fit into tight gaps. Now that I own a DR350, I think that bike would be the tits in Philly.
