Well I guess it depends.... if you're talking about these China cloned horizontal 4strokes. But in general 4strokes make more lowend power. Whereas the 2stroke motors makes more power on the topend. To reallyget the best out of a 2stroke you have to keep the rpms up in the sweet spot. The 2strokes especially the pocketbikes can be a lot more user friendly. It makes for a little bit of a different riding style. With a 4stroke you have to be real good with the clutch when down shifting entering a turn because of the engine braking. Meaning if you just dump the clutch while going into a turn at lean. The engine can cause the rear wheel to lock up for a few and cause the rider to crash. With the 2stroke it's no where near as bad and for the pocketbikes you don't have to worry at all about this scenario.
For me the 2strokes were easier to ride and go fast. But on that note i was able to beat 40cc unlimited mod watercooled pocketbikes and 50cc open mod watercooled pocketbikes on my 4stroke x18. They had more horsepower than me but i had the torque to shoot out of the turns. And that's where i would gap them. Oh and these were euro pocketbikes ,polini,grc,blata and 1 phantom oh and a couple of b1 origamis.
That was a fun weekend.lol
