History[ edit ] Motorcross first evolved in the U. Off-road bikes from that era differed little from those used on the street. The intense competition over rugged terrain led to technical improvements in motorcycles. Rigid frames gave way to suspensions by the early s, and swinging fork rear suspension appeared by the early s, several years before manufacturers incorporated it in the majority of production street bikes. Companies such as Husqvarna from Sweden, CZ from the former Czechoslovakia and Greeves from England became popular due to their lightness and agility. By the s, advances in two-stroke engine technology meant that the heavier, four-stroke machines were relegated to niche competitions. They dominated the event, placing their lightweight two-strokes into the top six finishing positions. The typical two-stroke air-cooled, twin-shock rear suspension machines gave way to machines that were water-cooled and fitted with single-shock absorber rear suspension. In the s, America’s leading motorcycle sport governing body, the AMA, increased the allowable displacement limit for four stroke powered machines in the AMA motocross championship, due to the low relative power output of a four stroke engine, compared to the then-dominating two stroke design. By , the displacement limit of a four stroke power motocross bike was up to cc in the class, to incentivize manufactures to further develop the design for use in motocross.

I had yearly maintenance on my forks. But there were no issues. A Rohloff hub also needs service every km, and is built into these top bikes, so I don’t think this is the reason. If maintenance is not factor then what was the purpose of that statement? I will changed my answer to problem free from maintenance free. I think reliability is a big factor in a touring bike and a fork with no moving parts is going to be more reliable than a fork with moving part every time.
