I understand that most 4 strokers are bullet proof engines and need not to fiddle for years if done good maintenance. I have few mills like that.
The 2 stroker engine is more for a mechanic or hobbyist that enjoy getting his/her hands dirty. ****, I used to rejet everytime I rode depending on the weather.
You can squish so much more horsepower on a 2 stroker, by just adding an expantion header and rejjeting. Then you have the porting, squish band, intakes, boost B, E ignition, etc.
Less weight, cheaper to buy and maintain. Every Stroke is a Power Stroke.
CC by CC, the 2 stroker is twice the engine! Look at Moto GP history.
You should ride in a modern automobile with variable cam timing. You would be amazed!
I only hope that such technology will come soon to the little 4 strokes that we use in our hobby.
