The users had the choice between ten different designs. The new MR 300 Racing is to be based on previous GasGas models. It was only in early March that Rieju announced that it would take over GasGas and that it would be based on off-road motorcycles in the future. Production of the new MR 300 Racing is scheduled to start in May.components from Kayaba and Nissin installed
Rieju has also commented on the technical data. The MR 300 Racing is powered by a liquid-cooled two-stroke single-cylinder engine with 299 cm³. The spring elements come from Kayaba. For the brake components, Rieju relies on stoppers from Nissin (260 disc at the front, 220 disc at the rear). 9.8 liters should fit in the tank. The manufacturer specifies 960 millimeters for the seat height, 105 kilograms for the weight and the tire dimensions 1.6 x 21-90 / 90 (front) / 2.15 x 18-140 / 80 (rear).
