2 strokes don't need to be dirty. Run at high power levels, 2 strokes can be very, very clean. Injected 2 strokes can be astoundingly clean. (like pass euro 3 with flying colors clean..)
The reason they're not in current bikes, cars, and trucks is due to their powerband. And people don't like the idea of having to add oil to their car.
They're still common in marine use, where they're still accustomed to using oil with their gas.
