Default Picked up a 2018 XC300!

Finally pulled the trigger! I couldn't decide between the EC or XC, I picked the XC because of the simplicity. All I need is a headlight. Plus I've been riding a 200 for the last few years and I enjoy a lively engine. I've never rode a 300 (any brand) and I've only rode a 250 GG and a 500 KTM as far as dirt bikes go. I'll post a ride review soon!

Take it easy while the suspension breaks in, a couple of hours should be good ?

Anyways, have fun!

Will do. I'll be teaching my little brother how to ride on my 200 the first few rides.

Congrats man, bike looks fantastic!

Be interested to hear what you think as you move from the 200 to the 300. My 200 is getting a bit long in the tooth, getting the itch for something "new". Considered going to the 250 next as I'd like a bit more oomph, but need to ride one. Also considered moving to the Beta X-trainer as my buddy has one and it's amazing to ride, but lack of kick start and small tank are big detractors.

Good on you for jumping on the '18 300, looking forward to reading your ride report and impressions

Is there a flywheel difference between the XC and EC? I did a short ride and so far I'm loving it!

I did a short ride on Sunday. I'll do a longer ride this weekend. So far it's awesome! It's just as nimble or more nimble then my 2013 200. Suspension feels really good. I felt comfortable really fast. The engine rev's nicely. I kinda wanted a 250 but I couldn't wait! I'll post more after this weekends ride.

It?s awesome! The xc300 was exactly what I wanted, coming off a 200 I really wanted a quick reving bike. I was waiting for the 250 but I?m very impatient. Lol. This bike is so good, the handling, suspension, looks, feel. I let my buddy ride it and he?s getting one now. If you can test ride one do it.
