2023 GASGAS MXERS: A NEW STRATEGY?

2 years ago | Words: Andy Wigan | Photos: GASGAS Motorcycles

Why is it that experienced riders prefer new-model bikes to be refined versions of their predecessors, rather than completely overhauled specimens, while the rest of us go gaga about the impending arrival of models with “sweeping changes” and a “ground-up rebuild”? Well, new-generation motorcycles – no matter which manufacturer you’re talking about – have a tendency to take a step sideways or even backward for a year or two before everyone figures out how they like to be set up and ridden.

And we suspect this phenomenon helps explains what’s going on with the newest brand in the KTM group’s stable, GASGAS, whose 2023 MX bike range recently broke cover. Unlike their KTM and Husqvarna siblings – both of which are expected to get an all-new platform for 2023 – GASGAS has opted to stay with the existing 2022 platform’s proven package, and simply dosed them with an even sexier shade of red for 2023. Hence the new-model marketing talk of a “proven package with a vibrant new look”.

More significantly, this strategy allows GASGAS to differentiate its offering – from both a component spec and pricing point of view – and in doing so, pursue its core objective of stealing customers from the Japanese brands, rather than its 2023-model KTM and Husky counterparts!

In any case, the 2023 GASGAS motocross machines sure look like red-hot firecrackers and will be arriving in Aussie and Kiwi dealerships from June. Here’s the PR from GASGAS about their ‘new’ 2023 MX range…

GASGAS is coming in hot for 2023 with a vibrant new look! Receiving a very loud, and very red, makeover, the entire GASGAS motocross range mixes serious on track performance with a fresh new look for continued weekend fun! Super capable in the hands of weekend warriors, high-level racers, and everyone in between, each of our 2023 models remains incredibly easy to ride, allowing all riders to push their limits and have some serious fun! Complete with the latest technology, WP suspension, and class-leading components, there’s never been a better time to get on the gas with one of our proven motocross bikes.

GASGAS fully understands how important it is to ensure that every day be a good day when you’re at the motocross track. Which is precisely why all our bikes are lightweight and compact, designed to deliver nimble handling and outstanding performance, as well as being loaded with quality, reliably components. But the really cool thing about each of our MX bikes is that they’re super easy to ride and simple to maintain, allowing riders to focus on the fun part of owning a dirt bike – riding and racing it!

THE MX RANGE

Catering for riders of all speeds and abilities, all five of our motocross models boast usable power that’s perfect for beginners yet equally more than enough to ensure serious racers can hunt down trophies and titles. With two lightweight and super-fun two-strokes to choose from – the MC125 and MC250 – and three awesome four-stroke models – the MC250F, MC350F, and MC450F – there really is something for everyone in our awesome full-size motocross range.

THE MINI RANGE

For the next generation of motocross thrill seekers, we’ve no less than five awesome mini-bikes to suit kids of all ages and abilities. For the smallest and most courageous youngsters, there’s our all-electric MC-E 5, and our petrol-powered, rev ‘n’ go MC50 right alongside it. Then as children progress and grow, they can step up to the six-speed MC65 before jumping up to our MC85, which is available in both small- and big-wheel versions for unrivalled motocross fun!

So, if you’re looking to get on the gas in 2023, there’s never been a better time to head down to your local GASGAS dealer and explore our complete range of dirt bikes. From our super-fun, high-revving MC 125 two-stroke through to the awesome, fire-breathing MC450F four-stroke, each model boasts a vibrant new look that’s uniquely GASGAS!
