Not all baned as commercial & rescue services will still be able to buy them! So you may see a lot of nearly new 2 stroke about!

Prices are actually going up. I think the ruling is that dealers are not allowed to import any new engines after end of year (except for commercial) but they can sell existing stock. Was looking at the prices of 4-6HP and in many cases the 2-strokes are now a good bit more expensive than equiv 4-stroke!
