Default New Zealand - WTB 2018/18 EC250 or 300

Hi Anyone on here know of any 2018/19 bikes for sale in NZ?
Preferably north island

There was one advertised in Thames a while back on trade me but not seen it advertised again.
would possibly also consider a beta x-trainer too

Why would you consider a XTrainer before the RR? Height will be same as GG 19

Reiju dealer is in Taupo. May have traded on older GG?

Because I know you have one ;-) lol

Main reason is that I liked the one I rode back home, but think it might not be as much fun in the NI grass and mud. Also could let my son ride my txt at trials and I just use the xtrainer

Anyway took my txt to berm buster this weekend and that was fun. Did ten million squats on the whooped out track but the single track was awesome on the trials bike.
I also took the demo ktm 300, 150 and husky 250, 150 for quite a few laps of the demo loop
And a few months ago demoed the Yamaha enduro range. The outcome is that I am a 2t guy, and a linkage guy and also a smaller engine guy. The 150’s are really awesome as was the 125x. Yamaha definitely has far superior suspension but the 125 motor is less forgiving if you miss a gear change

I might start adding 200rr into the mix.

I am looking for something that will be fun on a short enduro loop to get me back into shape which in turn will make the odd trip to the hard stuff in coromandel more enjoyable

Didn’t know there was a rieju dealer in nz. Who is it?
Also going to contact beta to see if they have any demo bikes. I am not in a huge rush so taking the opportunity to test them all … and then buy second hand lol

I was at BermBuster the month before. Took the TXT I just picked up (a 14) around the short loop but around the silver loop a couple of times. Was great. But. Got a bit of a sore back on the long transport sections wishing for a seat and more travel. Had done some loops already on my GG.

The XTRAINER needs suspension work to be effective. Just about there with local guy. Fair bit of work though. Mate just bought a RR race, looking forward to trying it somewhere I don't need to touch the ground.

Think it's daryl August in Taupo but not showing on their site. I'd asked the distributor and they answered. I'll have to go look at my old emails on work account.

We have a Reiju dealer in NZ?
Looking at buying a new bike later in the year & replacing my 2018 XC300.But I might keep as it may be the last carb bike I have. Also went to a Yamaha demo day & really liked the YZ250FX which surprised me.

Having lunch, I'll check my email response when I get back to desk. Maybe it fell through.

thanks will be worth taking them for a test if he has any, but i honestly thinki am leaning towards a 200.

I don't think there is much rock crawling that suits a 300 around this part of the island so leaning towards fun-factor bike now

When you say 200, are you talking of a Beta RR200? As GG / Rieju 200 of that vintage is rare to say the least.

The reason for asking, is of course that I wonder what bike is going to be my next one. My 2015 EC200 is close to 400 hours now.

Beta 200rr don't think i can justify the racing version, and just hoping that what ive read about the beta sachs is true, (apparently they are nothing like the GG sachs of 2010)
