Default Re: best low end power

The answer will always be generalizations, but... in general.... a 4 stroke will be heavier & generate less hp but more torque for a given capacity & rpm. So yes, low end can be better than 2 stroke. 4 stroke reliability is a myth, there are more moving parts so there is more that can go wrong. rings, pistons & cylinders do sometimes last longer as the rpm is often lower.
