Big news for enduro coming out of last week’s EICMA show in Milan was Gas Gas’ all-new EC 250 and EC 300 two-stroke machines.

With a lot going on with the new bike, Gas Gas have come out swinging as they aim to fight their way up to the top of enduro’s pecking order.

The Gas Gas will be in EC 250/300 trim for Europe and XC 250/300 trim for the USA. With that in mind we returned to the Gas Gas stand with some bigger camera lenses for a closer look…
