<span style="font-size:14pt;line-height:100%[font=Century Gothic] Back 2001 fim ruled that premier class moved to 4 strokes i do not know why does motogp' 250cc class still using this techical regulatión.
know that works learning to young riders to develop riding skills,like 125cc does so well but when someone has outstanding skills and become 250cc champión moved to motogp further, not always happen, the change in the way how to management that engine' power delivery is dramatic and make curve learning thighten.
Of course there has been riders with special talent Therefore I eager to see lorenzo and dovizioso goes.

The 125cc and 250cc classes will be changing to 4 stroke engines soon. The bikes need to be cheap enough to promote private teams and keep european manufacturers in the sport, for that reason 2 strokes are perfect. But they are out of date and irelevant to the premier class and i have heard they will be changed around 2012.

sadly i think its inevitable the 2 stroke classes will end and a smaller 4 stroke class put in its place.
i dont think it has anything to do with the skills learned for a premier ride. after all it seems that the riders who have come from the 2 stroke series have performed better than riders that have come from 4 stroke series like wsb and ama (nicky excluded) .
i think it will be for a totally commercial reason they are changed. i think as tom has pointed out, the reason this change has not happened as yet is because of the money involved for teams to switch from 2 to 4 stroke..
