What year GG 300 has E-start?

Recommended Posts

Casually looking around for a woods thrasher. If a GG 300 came up at a good deal, I'd try one out. Needs a button though. What years to look for?

 

Any comparisons to a Beta 300?

I believe that 2011 was the first year the EC250/300 came with electric start. 

I can only compare a short ride on a bone stock 2014 EC300 to my current Beta 300RR. The GasGas had a much more distinct mid range hit compared to the more linear Beta power delivery. Outside of that I can't tell you much other than I'd have no issue with owning either one.

I went with the Beta simply because of the state GasGas was in at the time and the lack of local dealers. I'd love to take a new 2018 for a ride to see how they have changed. They definitely look good!

They can be put on the older bikes though. I put one on my 06. Not sure how far back.

18 has significantly smoother motor, and a slightly better estart. My 14 300 estart rarely worked right.  My 18 hasn't missed a beat.. yet. ;)...

Well, if lightning strike was able to retrofit his '06, I'll go out on a limb and say '05 - on. GG redid the engine cases for the 2005 model year.
