It is jam-packed full of bike tests, product reviews, tech articles and stuff you didn’t know—and no one else will ever tell you. below is a sampling of the stories in the April issue—not all of them, but a good cross section. Enjoy

With TM USA in limbo, the MXA wrecking crew gathered the only remaining 125 two-stroke race bikes and arranged a four-bike shootout. We had a blast comparing the new Yamaha YZ125 against the best that Austria had to offer in form of the KTM125, Husqarna TC125 and GasGas MC 125.

MXA’s Daryl Ecklund never got to race in KX500 or CR500 in the AMA 500 Nationals because the AMA dropped 500cc two-stroke before his Pro days. Surprisingly, he got his chance to ride a bevy of big-bore two-strokes when he came to MXA. Now he loves them. So, imagine how happy he was to get to ride two retro-modded smokers at one time.

         MXA went to ClubMX to ride the Yamaha YZ450F that Alex Martin is racing in the 2022 AMA 450 Supercross series. Alex was still working out the details of setting the bike up, so we got to ride all of his options. “Forgotten Tech” searches motocross history for creative idea that didn’t secure a foothold in motocross. Take the 1977 Race Face goggles. as an example. They addressed the problem of how to protect your face when wearing an open-face helmet, but didn’t think about comfort, ventilation or looks. In “Dream Jobs” we track down three people who followed their dream to work in the motorcycle industry. We let them tell you how they got where they are.

The 2022 GasGas MC250F is a no frill, just thrills 250 four-stroke that doesn’t break the bank. You get all the important parts of the 2022 KTM 250SXF, without any excess foof or zeroes on the price tag.  It is plusher, easier to ride, more forgiving and sweet looking race bike.

If you are drooling over the new Factory Editions or are just a techno-geek to goes crazy for crazy ideas, MXA delves deeper into the R&D behind the 2022-1/2 450SXF Factory Edition than anyone else ever dared go. We explain each hidden secret. This story is full of stuff that nobody ever told you, because they didn’t know.The Yamaha Ascot Scrambler 250 twin was built to be raced at SoCal’s Ascot Park. It was a limited production dirt track bike that was produced by Yamaha from 1962 to 1967. It was a copy of the hand-made TD-1 road race engined twins that Ascot racers put into Trackmaster and Red line frames.

Casey Lytle raced for several classic 1990 125 two-stroke teams–including Honda of Troy, Yamaha of Troy, FMF Honda and Pro Circuit Kawasaki. He would go on to become the KTM team manager before making way for Roger DeCoster. Today, Casey works on future KTM projects for the Austrian firm.

The 2010 Husaberg FX450 was on the cutting edge of the centralization of mass movement in 2010—but the time for their Jens Elmwall-designed upside-down engine was short — as was the time for Husaberg to stay in business. Owned by KTM, Husberg was folded to make room for Husqvarna.

Jason Anderson broke his 47-race losing streak when he won the Oakland Supercross. MXA’s Travis Fant was there to capture El Hombre’s jubilation for “Moto In Motion.”

Do you remember when the lights went out in Vegas? No, well then you missed the first and only rider strike in Supercross history. “Ask the MXperts” is your chance to ask questions about anything on your mind—from jetting to suspension to tech to history. If we don’t know the answer, we know someone who does.
