2013 Sherco 300 SE

Posted on by  

The Sherco 300 SE may not look too intimidating, but don’t mistake it for a flimsy lightweight bike because is far more impressive than it looks.

The new Sherco 300 SE combines easy handling with a low seat height and outstanding ergonomics and on top of that, it weighs only 105 kg. Thanks to its lightweight construction and high class parts, the Sherco 300 SE keeps you out of trouble even on the toughest trails, whether it be rough terrain, narrow single tracks or wide gravel roads.

Power comes from a revised 293.14 cc, 2 Stroke, single cylinder engine with electronically controlled valves and booster. The unit does e perfect job when it goes head to head with the tough tracks and features controllable, torque-oriented performance characteristics. It is also worthy of being mentioned that the engine received a redesigned cylinder head for 2013 and a new crankcase.
