WHEN TWO-STROKES RULED

Two-stroke engines are perfect for off-road vehicles and ATV’s. They’re powerful, but yet simple and lightweight. No matter if they’re in two-wheelers, three-wheelers or four-wheelers, two-stroke engines allow the vehicles to be nimble and the riders to move quickly across earth’s natural terrain. It’s a shame that you can no longer buy a new quad […]

LONESTAR TITANIUM TRX330R

We’re taking a look at Doug Miedema’s quad here that started out as a Honda TRX250R, but there’s probably not a stock part on it (except the plastic). The thing that makes this machine extra special is the Lonestar frame made from titanium. It is the lightest, strongest and highest quality steel there is. As […]

PROJECT MACHINE: 4-STROKE 250R

A TRX450R/CRF250R hybrid/quad takes on TT racing By the staff of Dirt Wheels       When we think of hybrid quads, those thoughts take us back to the late ‘90s and early 2000s when there was an odd transition going on in ATV racing.

FLASH BACK FRIDAY: Honda ATC250R Rath TT Build

Back in the ’80s ATC racing was at its prime, and one competitor was Daryl Rath. Daryl now owns Rath Racing, where he builds aftermarket parts like nerf bars, bumpers, footpegs and more for ATVs, ATCs and UTVs. Once the ATC fell off of the Honda production line, Daryl stopped racing three-wheeled machines and stuck […]

PROJECT MACHINE: Honda 250R Rebuild Pt. 2

What if Honda or another manufacturer released a new two-stroke sport quad today? Would that be enough to rejuvenate the industry and make quads as popular as they were in 2007? Well, if the EPA has anything to do with the idea, it probably won’t happen. However, that may not be all bad, because you […]

SHOOTOUT: Honda 250R vs Suzuki Quadzilla 500

If you go to an ATV dealership or even check out the manufacturers’ websites these days, it looks like high-performance sport quads are sort of fading away. While sales of brand-new quads may be rebounding at only half the speed of the economy, people are still riding them in large numbers. Look at your local […]
