If you did it a 72mm stroke the bore would only be 59.4mm, piston still would have to be 75mm tall to cover the exhaust port though. It'd run smooth.
If it has the 300 rod it'll be a destroked crank with a respecced barrel port height. It won't need a deep skirt piston Tom, they'll just change the TX and EX port heights in the 200 barrel casting.

I'm not a fan of 200s, they're either 125s with messed up B/S ratios or little motors carting around a 300 chassis. The former is the better option IMO.

KTMs new 150 will flog any 200 I've ever seen. Dedicated engine architecture is the key to a good small bore.

Close Motorcycles in Sydney are now a Gas Gas dealer & have perhaps one of the brand's biggest Australian aficionados (along with Jake & Seano!) selling and supporting the bikes - Chris Ruffley.

This should help with the "better marketing" side of things.

So, for Sydney riders at least, there is another alternative in 2-t land. I haven't ridden the bike but will be on Sunday - very much looking forward to seeing how the 2018 EC300 Six Days compares with my RR300.

There's bikes in the shop - go get 'em. My brother has just ordered an 2018 EC300 GP and I'm seething with jealousy ..

I'd take bald & unfunny to be able to wheelie properly!

Me too. Can't wheelie more than a few metres without losing it. Put a big rock step in front of me and I'm happy putting the front wheel as high as you like, though..

As for GasGas - yes, Close Motorcycles in Sydney are now a dealer. We have bikes in stock, and a EC300 SixDays demo to ride in the bush. FWIW I am really impressed with the bike - light, fast, easy to ride with great suspension. And it's fun. Lots of fun.

The bikes are in our Marrickville workshop - I'd be happy to show people over them whenever you like. Give me a shout and I'll make sure I'm there.

If you're in the market and fancy a test ride give me a call/PM and I'll come meet you somewhere for a ride. If there's a few of you, that's better still - group ride!

If you need parts or service same deal, call me and I'll help.
