It all started when KTM came to the rescue of GASGAS. The Spanish firm was once again in a delicate financial situation that endangered its production and needed a new injection of capital to continue producing its enduro and trial bikes. KTM saw the opportunity to strengthen the Catalan brand and expand the production of the Salt factory in Girona.
Since then we have seen great feats by riders of the stature of Laia Sanz in the Dakar Rally or Glenn Coldenhoff in MXGP who, by the way, made history on the handlebars of the new GASGAS MC 450F by winning in the MXGP of Latvia this year. Today, GASGAS has presented us digitally, through YouTube, the new models of the 2021 range. A presentation that undoubtedly marks the beginning of a new chapter for GASGAS motorcycles. And, to underline their commitment to empower and reactivate the brand, they have introduced the slogan GET ON THE GAS! Much more than just a slogan; These four words are deeply rooted in GASGAS and those who founded it.
Since GASGAS became part of the PIERER Mobility Group, GASGAS has worked tirelessly to reactivate the brand. Ensuring that all bikes offer vibrant style, the latest technology, and ease of use, they have established a range of 19 high-performance, no-nonsense and easy-to-use bikes.
All benefit from the “group’s” robust and high-performance technical foundation, each of the bikes adopting a distinctly Spanish style while continuing to celebrate the rich and proud heritage that GASGAS has in trial and enduro competition. . With improved levels of dealer network coverage, service and support, the goal is to encourage all riders to join the brand.
2021 undoubtedly marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for GASGAS Motorcycles. To further support the launch of the offroad motorcycle range, the firm has announced new plans to go racing in the US as they join forces with a hugely respected name in the supercross/motocross paddock. Thus, GASGAS is proud to announce the Factory Racing Team, Red Bull GASGAS by Troy Lee Designs, which will compete in the 2021 AMA Supercross and Pro Motocross Championships in the 250cc and 450cc categories.
Without a doubt, the off-road world has long been the heart of GASGAS. That’s why the new EC range, which is Euro 5 compliant, focuses on ensuring a fun and putting competitive enduro bikes in the hands of riders who love off-road racing. The range of 2 and 4 stroke motorcycles features the latest technologies and celebrates the Spanish heritage and knowledge of enduro. Using a well-proven performance platform, the EC 250, EC 300, EC 250F, and EC 350F enduro bikes.
They also want to make sure the kids have fun too. Rejuvenated and focused on an exciting new future, the model range includes four GASGAS minis, designed for children ages 4-15. With three 2-strokes, MC 50, MC 65 and MC 85, and the fully electric MC-E5, it’s super quiet and super fun: a fast-charging, complete racing bike that benefits from zero emissions and almost no sound. The GASGAS mini range is built to excite and encourage young people to develop new skills.
Improving and strengthening a well-established line of innovative, class-leading motorcycles, they are fully focused on continuing their presence in the sport where it all began for GASGAS. The company continues to offer the same great 125cc, 250cc, 280cc, and 300cc bikes, but now with improved levels of access, service, and support.
Fulfilling the need for dedicated cross country models, the EX 300, EX 250F, EX 350F, and EX 450F range sits shoulder to shoulder with the MC and EC models to deliver fun and energetic offroad performance. Designed to meet the needs of pilots, both young and old.
