Yes the Beta Sachs.

After riding the 2017 GG EC300 and 2017 Sherco, I bought a 2017 Sherco 300 SE-R. The Sherco had better power and handling and a modern design.
Now that GG has had the 2018 models out for a while, I was wondering if anyone has had a chance to ride both and could comment on the differences between the two. How about a ready to ride weight on the GG? All this competition is good for the consumer, and I hope to see GG, Sherco and Beta keep selling bikes in the US.

Time for a new bike this summer. I will be keeping my 2011 EC250R as my rock bike.

So, I am strongly considering adding a four stroke, and on that list, by way of elimination is something like a left-over 2018 Sherco 300SEF-R, ideally in ?Factory? trim.

Any updates on your Shercos in 2017?

Did you end up with a Sherco? I sold my 300EC...trying to decide between 18+GG, Sherco, or Beta

I tried to love the 4-strokes, but the 2Ts still called my name.

The Beta was okay, but felt generally lacking. It felt old, I guess. And $400 for a kicker.

The Sherco felt really good underneath me... ergos and handling, but my research amd polling of current Sherco owners concinved me it was a few years away in R&D, that is, I had a concern for reliabilty (eStart only, charging system, motor in a bike I would keep for years).

I demoed the KTMs and they were okay. I decided if I were to go 2T it would be Gas Gas. The Air Forks were too MX-y. The XPlor forks were plush. The power on the carbed 2Ts was too peaky. The fuel-injected 2T was too mellow.

I went with the 2018 300 Gasser. The KYB suspension works very well. The motor is dandy. The handling is a nice mix of old GG and new (longer traits). I actually feel like *I* can turn it better (and tigher) than my 2011 250.

I got to test ride the 2017 and 2018 GG ec 300 back to back. WOW what a difference. the 2018 was great, handling, power, smoothness. All the way around I like the 2018.
I would love to hear what you think about your 2018 since the season is about over and how it did for you.
