There is a picture of a new 500 two stroke MX Honda (allegedly) doing the rounds on the internet. 

In theory 2T trials should be quite a bit lighter and cheaper (due to less parts / less complexity) than a 4T. Until a manufacturer produces and sell a top spec low cost 2T in large volumes Honda / mont will probably continue to sell only 4T. Same goes for MX. If good 2Ts were available at a lower price and 4T sales fell then manufacturers may be forced to go 2T including Honda.

Honda are going to develop 1cylinder of the hybrid McLaren/ Honda   F1 engine as evidently the soft lower power output will be spot on for trials.

Watch out for the Spanish dream team of fernando alonso and Toni bou!!
