2016 Shercos

I want to like them, but no kick start back-up on an off-road bike is a big no-no in my book.

I see a few issues besides that.

1) French.  Aside from being unlikable, they also build weird shit that is different from anything else, with marginal quality.  I guess when you only work 35 hours a week, 42 weeks a year...:)

2) 17 dealers nationally.  http://shercooffroad.com/wp/?page_id=206#/map
Seems like a bike with so little support could have parts disappear in a heartbeat.

Yeah, just look what the Gas Gas owners are now going through and they have/had a MUCH bigger dealer network.

Looks like they are now up to 18 dealers.  LOL

And still no kick-start (a total deal breaker for me).

Anywho, here is a test of the 2018 SHERCO 300SE-R 2-Stroke:
