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.

Hi Swazi Matt
You will find 1 x very lightly demo , left over 2018 EC300 at Amuri motorcycles , 2c Birmingham Drive , Christchurch Ph 03 315-8667 , Ask for Norm and Jan and say Linton from DAS sent you. It's our last one from the NZ importer days - very early 18 production. They seem to to have "voltage dependant CDI" -the battary gets down but spins engine over fine - lazy to spark up at the plug . Kicks over first prod on the kick start . Told there was a reflash / update but finding someone who knows and cares is a modern "Aussie / NZ" agent thing.Urban Moto, the Australian/NZ importers , seem fine for 2018 on parts according to my buddys with them.

Heya Linton, good to see you here.
I wonder if an Ignitech might be less affected by the voltage drop caused by the starter. They do drop out and have to start up electronics again if voltage sags too low, but we would bump start Buckets with just a capacitor and they would bang into life instantly. Obviously no starter drain , but quick to react.

Or have to think of some clever tiny supplementary battery relay drop out just enough to get it going.

Hi Swazi Matt
we must be brothers - Have my Buddies '013 OSSA 280 trials here at the shop, there's more than 1 !!!!
Would love a 300 OSSA enduro bike of that era , has so many features that improve living with modern "cookie cutter" dirt bike design and have a garage full of freaks to keep it company ....
