Default National Rally Championships for 2-stroke bikes after 9 years

Guys,

After a gap of 9 years, the indian national championship is back this year. The first event is scheduled to commence in Mysore.

Two stroked bikes (Yezdi, RD 350, Yamaha RX 100 and the Suzuki Shoguns) were used predominently for rallying in India till the mid nineties. Will the old war horses be able to manage the power of the 4 stroke bikes that we have in the market today?

Whats your take?

I think a TVS factory RTR won the event.

I dont think anybody will enter/win on RD on the rally.
we have either poser point RD owners, whose bikes will never be competitive even if they enter, or we have select group of RD owners who keep their rides in immaculate condition, and its very unlikely that they will abuse their ride in a rally.

forget yezdi, sad story again. and for shogun, parts are not available.

That leaves the Rx series, I am sure there will be some. How competitive they will be? we will have to wait and see.
One thing for sure is all the top teams are likely to run 4st bikes as they are new, and thats where they want to invest for the marketing/sponsorship purpose.
