Default GasGas ec300???

     

Anybody own one of these that doesn't like it? I'm considering buying one and the reviews on them are nothing short of fabulous. Problem lies in that I have no dealer anywhere near me and no one I know owns one I can try out so if I do buy one it will be completely blind on my part until it shows up. I don't want to buy one only to find out it will not suit my needs. First off, street and trail. How do they behave on the road? How many kms on a top end? I live within 2 kms from work so no big deal but I would like to make a couple of trips to town a week, 20kms round trip. Next, are they frustrating to work on? I currently own a 1989 cr250 and working on it is a breeze. I guess those are my main concerns so if anyone could pipe up with answers to these or just general comments on the bike I would really appreciate it.

Thanks, very informative but I'm wondering mostly about the durability of the bike. How will it stand up after two or three years of street and trail use. I was in halifax yesterday and sat on one at RPM cycles and loved it, wish they had let me take it for a rip, damn snow

I think the bike may very well be a good one but the lack of opinion is because there are very few used in the USA.
Have to say though, a dirt bike on the street isn't the hot setup and maybe what should be considered depending on your local requirements.

The 300ec got voted best offroad bike here last year, not sure about the 06 models but the newer ones seem good.
