Default Correct coolant for ec300 2018???

Does anyone know which coolant radiator should be used in GASGAS EC300 2018?
I am in doubt about these two options of MOTOREX:

This is silicate free:

This is silicate base:

Wich is the correct?

Silicate free is always best.
I just use Engine Ice.

Yes!

I read silicate base is more abrasive!

But the GASGAS recomends this:

This coolant is not silicate free!

See the specs!

Moto Center put Engine Ice in my 2018 XC300.

First time I?ve used it. Others in Phoenix swear by it.

You can use whatever you like mate!! Just make sure you give the system a good flush if changing different coolants first.

Just make sure you don't use it if your bike is stored in an area that freezes over the winter. (Don't ask me how I know this)

Can you elaborate what you mean and Describe storage and freeze over the winter?

I've used it for a few years in 32f to -15f temps for 3 months at a time and have not had a problem. Even when hauling it for 2 hours out in the open on a hitch mount in zero f temps.

The antifreeze properties are why I choose it over a couple other similar products.

It froze on me over the winter one year and when I started my bike in the spring coolant spewed out between the cases. I had to split the cases and change the gasket.

That sounds horrible.

How cold does it get in the winter where you live?
