Wow Thanks mate.

Bit deeper in actual details than I was aware of.

Imagine what if, if the Easties were a capitalist nation with that technology.

Would the Japanese two strokes gotten as powerful or numerous?

I've probably got a few colour photos of the MZ two-strokes bikes raced by Ernst Degner and British rider Alan Shepherd in the 1960's. I took at the motorcycle museum at Schloss Augustusburg. It's a few miles from the now derelict MZ factory at Zschopau, which is the Z in MZ, on a tour of East Germany back in 1988.

Corner at Suzuka race course in Japan named after Degner. Track owned by Honda and built by Soichiro for testing his bikes.
