Malaguti MR250: Two-strokes once more?

The 250cc, two-stroke Malaguti MR250. Will they really make this machine...?
Going by the few pics and some bits of information available on the Web, Italian scooter-specialists Malaguti may soon be building a brand-new two-stroke motorcycle – the MR250. The bike is fitted with a two-stroke, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder 250cc engine, which is supposed to produce about 50 horsepower!

The Malaguti MR250 takes some styling cues from American flat-trackers and rides on 18-inch (front) and 17-inch (rear) wire-spoked wheels. Other bits include a tubular-steel chassis, 41mm USD front fork, cantilever-type rear shock, and 300mm (front) and 220m (rear) brake discs. The bike has a wheelbase of 1430mm, and weights 118 kilos dry.

We don’t know if Malaguti really intend to put this bike into production or whether the MR250 is merely a one-off prototype, but the little bike does look good. Stay tuned for more information on this one…
