Spanish brand Rieju has announced New Zealand availability for its new Six Days France MR 300 two-stroke , with pricing set at a slightly salty $ 19,490 . This limited edition will begin to arrive on New Zealand shores in late August 2022 with pre-orders now open . With the 96th edition of the International Six Days of Enduro set to take place in France , the MR 300 Six Days pays homage to the hosts with Blue , White & Red graphics as well as all the goodies to make this a top-tier option for taking enduro competition head-on . As for the chassis itself , compared to the MR PRO it builds on , the Six Days France adds a

Supersprox double composite sprocket , a sexy handcrafted racing exhaust , a competition gripper seat cover with a checklist pocket , the new Polisport frame protector in red that offers extra protection in case of impact , the exclusive Crosspro crankcase full protector and new black PUNK footpegs made of high strength steel . Not so easy to spot is the 48mm twin-chamber magic of the KYB fork or the new electric starter system and new engine mapping . It is a very cool bit of kit , and while only a small player in the NZ scene so far , we expect big things from Rieju in the future as the dealer network grows .
