Default 200 2 stroke ?

Looking at the GG usa website for 2013 bikes .. don't see this listed at all... I'm thinking I want a Electric start 200 , don't want to go Orange.. Are they still being made ?

Clay would be the one to give you an official answer. Send him a email or drop him a p.m.

I really don't think the 200cc was a very popular model, most prefer a 250 or 300 over a 200, then again most have never rode a 200.

The turn off is the 200 shares same frame and components as the larger models, thus making is a bit obeaste / portly.

This is a good question. As I understand they pretty much make 200's for the USA. I think. Halls website says you can preorder a 2013 200. But really with the bike being, well porky a 250 may be a better choice. But yes a 200 is almost a thousand cheaper which would pay for some good stuff! Clay can tell ya!

i'd suggest try test driving a 200.
shure a 250 will have more of everything, but will you be able to keep holding it in control after 100km loop orso?
i swapped my 300 for a 200 and don't regret it.
the 200 is a bit underappreciated IMHO
give it a try, i'm shure it can do allmost everything the "big" ones can.
+ you don't have to be so subtile on the throttle, until it hits the powerband

good luck o the choice, just make shure it's a gasser

ciao, Hannes.

I am sure the 200 has plenty of go, im only 70kg , its only the tango 200 that shares the smaller/lighter frame/motor but i dont want a orange bike, shame they dont do the berg in a 200,

The 200 motor has plenty of zip, if the 200 motor was in the 125 frame Hang on!

Not sure the 13 200s are in the USA yet. They have some good deals on 12 200s. I really like my 12 200 very easy to start, engine low end grunt is amazing. Not sure electric start would be worth it, but could be added.
