2011 Gas Gas two-stroke range

5 years ago

The 2011 Gas Gas two-stroke range will see three new bikes on the market; the EC200, EC250 electric start, and EC300 in both kick and electric start models. They look chocked full of goodies that will keep your bike running like a hamster on a wheel, and they have an interesting new look to boot.

EC200 Six Day

The EC200 Six Day was designed to compete at the highest level of racing, with special features that would normally be found on factory bikes ridden by 2009 six-day enduro winning Gas Gas rider Cristophe Nambotin.

When the EC200 Six Day arrives into Australia, around December, Gas Gas customers can look forward to a bike with the following special features:

  • Renthal twin wall handle bars
  • Pro Grip racing hand grips
  • Ohlins 888 rear shock
  • Marzochi 45mm forks
  • Galfer wave disc
  • Quick release brake pads
  • Rear brake cooler
  • Alloy Radiator protectors
  • FMF Q series muffler
  • Super Sprox rear sprocket
  • Quick release front axel
  • Alloy engine protector
  • The EC200 Six Day is only available with kick start and will be backed by a 12 month warranty, recommended retail price will be $9,999

    EC300 kick start

    Gas Gas’s extremely popular EC300 will be available with kick start only, as well as electric start. The 2011 EC300 kick start will be imported in small numbers to begin with — for those wishing to start their bike in the traditional way.

    The EC300 has gained a reputation for its powerful engine and outstanding steering and this has been enhanced for 2011. The Sachs 48mm front forks and rear shock have been re valved with the rear now running new oil for cooler running and consistency. Pro Gips are standard fitment on to Hebo tapered handlebars as well as new rear adjustable brake pedal. Increased performance has been obtained through the standard fitment of a FMF Q series muffler that is said to give a broader spread of power with no additional noise. Keeping the extra power to the ground will be the new fitment of Metzeler MCE six day tyres. The Gas Gas appealing looks have been enhanced with a new headlight and front mud guard, while the frame is now painted in Gas Gas red. Recommended Retail Price will be $10,500 and is now available.

    Features:

  • FMF Q series muffler
  • New Graphics
  • New Headlight
  • New MX style rear chain guide
  • New front mud guard
  • New valving in front and rear suspension
  • Metzeler MCE six day tyres
  • New radiator cap and thermostat
  • EC300/250 electric start


    After a delay in the release of their electric start two-stroke models, production has now started with customer’s bikes arriving mid November. Gas Gas has carried out extensive testing to insure reliability of their electric start system, with over 10,000 faultless repeat starts in testing. By using a larger capacity battery and starter motor, plus the use of an reduction gear incorporating a torque clutch, Gas Gas has developed a system that will start reliably hot or cold.

    The EC250/300 electric start models will include all the same standard changes found on the Kick start EC300 but with the addition of an electric leg and only a slight increase in weight to 105.5kg

    Features:

  • FMF Q series muffler
  • New Graphics
  • New Headlight
  • New MX style rear chain guide
  • New front mud guard
  • New valving in front and rear suspension
  • Electric Starter motor
  • Metzeler MCE six day tyres
  • Arrival Date will be mid November with a suggested retail price of $11,500 for the EC300 electric start and $10,995 for the EC250 Electric start.

    All 2011 four stroke information will be available mid January.
