BRC 500cc TWO-STROKE KIT BIKE VIDEO
WE RIDE THE BRC TWO-STROKE KIT BIKE ON GLEN HELEN’S MOTOCROSS TRACK
The 500cc two-stroke engine became extinct in 2000 (not 2007 like we mistakenly said in the video) when the last Honda CR500 came down Honda’s Kumamoto production line in Japan. These warhorses that were made for the men among men were forgotten over time. Big-displacement two-strokes took riders with finesse and a few screws loose to tame them. Now, in a world populated by heavy, complex, 450cc four-stroke engines that pump out 60-plus horsepower off the showroom floor, the 500cc two-stroke doesn’t seem as intimidating to ride as it once did.
BRC Engineering decided to manufacture his own 500cc, two-stroke, single-cylinder engine and design it so that it would be a drop-in project for a KTM chassis. For the full story of the BRC 500cc kit bike click here.
