Ive ridden an ;06 FSE450, an '07 300 and i own an '03 200. The 300 is the bike that i found most capable. it had lots of torque when needed and it had a fair amount of top end too. You could ride it slightly slower like a four stroke or you could ride it hard like an old school two-stroke.

The 450 was nice but too aggressive off the bottom.

I love my 200 but it could do with a little more bottom end. Ill get a 52 tooth sprocket in place of a 50 and if that doesnt work ill buy an LTR powervalve cover

250. The do it all bike.

To complement the 250, I will be looking for a 125 to set up for hare scrambles and south NJ runs come spring.

I've ridden only the extremes of the two stroke line. The 125 was nice, it got me on a Gas Gas in the first place, but 125s aren't my style.

Since I've only ridden my 250, I didn't feel qualified to vote. I guess I did when I bought a 250 LMAO.

I really look at Glenn's advice and feel I bought the right bike for myself.:)

I'm in the same boat as eff. First GASGAS and as of yet have not had the opportunity to ride any other Gassers, But am stoked to own one of these weapons!!!!!! My vote had to go to the 450....sorry.

Hay guys, though I have only ridden my 04 EC200 and no other gassers, i must say I love the 200 engine. As im not a aggressive rider but more of an trailrider, the 200 engine has the most perfect balance between user-friendly power and aggressiveness. Its a engine which lets you as the rider make it what you want it to be - either a racer or a trailbike. I absolutely love it! A great allround engine to keep you satisfied for a long time to come.

I agree warnzie, my current ride is a 2004 DE200 and so far the bike has been a blast to ride. You do give up some speed on the fire roads to the bigger bikes but when the trails tighten, that’s when you really start having FUN!!
All around the 200 is a perfect bike for me and the kind of trails we mainly ride only make it better.

I was riding a 1996 KDX200 before purchasing the Gasser in 2005 and let me tell you there is no comparison the gasser barks where as the KDX made you ring its neck to make it go.
I’ve settled on riding 200’s because they are so much more flickable than 250’s and 300’s.
My friend rides a 300 and his son has a 250 (pumpkin’s :( ) and I shutter to say I’ve ridden both, I do like the hit of a 250 and the shear torque of the 300 (with auto clutch), but each time I couldn’t wait to get back on mine because I believe the 200 has everything I need too ride with a big grin :D .

KTM just held a free ride on new bikes and the main thing I heard commented on was the surprise they all got when they rode the 200. Most of them rode it several times…. Hmmmm!!!

I have a 250 but I'm eagerly awaiting the 515! There is more DS type riding right out the door available to me at the moment.
