SHERCO 250 or 300 4t ?
Anybody out there tried the new Sherco 250 of 300 four stroke trail bikes?
Good reviews from TBM etc, seat ht's a bit lower than KTMs also.
Considering one for long distance trail riding, rocks, mud, water and the like.
Be nice to have opinions from actual owners if poss.

I just rode a 2014 Sherco 300 SEF-R (4T) 2500 kms on 7 day dual sport trip, and did some muddy single track here on the farm for several days also.
It's a nice bike.
I didn't love the FI but apparently the bike I was riding needed the injectors servicing (it hunted and surged at constant throttle and flamed out in the techy stuff too easily). On the throttle and up in the rev range, the motor was absolutely cracking awesome and incredibly powerful for the size.
The whole package feels dramatically lighter and smaller than my KTM 450exc, and certainly easier to handle in the rough stuff.
Ergonomically I found it not well suited for me (I'm fairly tall) - the bars are low and the foot pegs high and forward. It's a woods racing setup and it's not IMHO ideal for dual-sporting, but it would be a great harescramble/race/enduro bike.
