Following the dissolution of Czechoslovakia and the dismantling of the communist bloc. the Jawa consumer motorcycles and the Speedway competition bikes were divided into separate companies. In the nineties.  JAWA Speedway bikes were successful. while the Jawa company has struggled. As of 2006 the JAWA mostly produce bikes similar to Honda 250 cc. 125 cc and 50 cc motorcycles and large bike with a 650 cc rotax engine.the iconic  two-stroke twin motor.

 Starting in 1997. Honda started the first gen aluminum frames. The first gen frames were thick, rigid and were a big change from the previous steel frames. Then in 2000. Honda came out with the second gen aluminum frame. Which was less rigid. It also had a smaller and thinner twin-spar aluminum frame. Which provided the rigidity decrease. That made for better handling. Then in 2002. They came out with the third gen aluminum frame. Which was thinner, and lighter. They kept the same frame with minor suspension changes until they stopped production of any 2-stroke in 2007.

Lots of people have different taste in dirt bikes but my favorite dirt bike would have to be a KTM 300 2 stroke. To this day. the KTM 300 is considered the best bike for racing. And riding on tight trials.  Two-stroke or four-stroke. It got a significant update in 2004. But even the ones made between 2000 and 2003 were pretty good. The two versions were the EXC and the MXC. The latter of which had more desert-oriented gearing. I have always wanted to own a ktm. Those bikes are awesome if i could pick out one bike i would take a 250 2 stroke ktm.
