    I own both.

    The Gas Gas is smaller in stature.

    Both 300 engines rock.

    I would consider parts availability and area dealers in this decision.

    Are you sure that you want an XC and not the XCW. I also ride tight rocky stuff and have about 50 hours on my 2012 300XCW and can tell you that it is one very sweet machine for the tight woods straight out of the box though the susspension really is way too stiff. You will need to spend a couple of bucks to soften it up and oh yeah the stock tires are garbage and you should change over before even going for the first ride.

    Both front and rear tires are crap ??? I had them change the front but if you say the word I will have the rear changed. I bought the XC only because I thought I may try a little Motocross

    I just had Enduro Engineering do the suspension on my 2012 XC250 . I have a few friends with suspension done from other competitors so we will have a show down to see how EE compares !!!! This is going to be VERY cool !!!
