First Look: 2022 GASGAS Models
It was only a few months back that we first got to throw a leg over the all-new, rejuvenated GASGAS machines – the three 2021 MX models and three 2021 enduro models – that now roll off KTM’s production line in Austria. GASGAS referred to that initial line-up of 2021 MX and enduro machines as “condensed model ranges” but, as GASGAS announced this week, they’ve expanded their off-road model line-up for 2022. While there doesn’t appear to any significant upgrades – even aesthetically – for these 2022 year-model bikes, three all-new MX models have been added to the range: the MC350F, MC250, and small-wheel MC85.
Here’s the guts of this week’s PR from GASGAS about their 2022 range of MX, enduro, and cross-country bikes, which will start arriving in Australia from August (the three new MX models are due in Oz and NZ from September and December, respectively). RRPs are yet to be made public.
We’ve got new models for 2022, but our goal remains the same – to continue delivering performance off-road motorcycles for those who love to ride! We’re super-proud of the bikes we launched just under a year ago, but we’re going a little bigger for 2022, adding three new motocross machines to ensure we offer the most comprehensive dirt bike line-up there is!
For kids, we’ve introduced a small wheel MC85. For adults – the big kids – we’ve launched a new MC250 two-stroke together with the MC350F four-stroke, strengthening our awesome range of dirt bikes.
Giving the next generation of motocross stars a bike that bridges the gap between our MC65 and MC85, our new small wheel MC85 is the perfect choice for mini racers working their way up the ranks. With a carefully designed chassis that accommodates its smaller wheels, the bike ensures uncompromised handling and performance, and is ready to shred with a simple prod of the kick-starter.
We ticked all the boxes when it came to building what we believe is the ultimate 250cc two-stroke motocross bike, our MC250. With an engine that boasts tons of torque down low, together with ample power up top, with WP XACT Suspension it soaks up bumps and jumps no matter how hard or fast a rider hits them. And let’s not forget its mechanical simplicity and low running costs. Built for two-stroke fans and unbelievably competitive in the hands of serious racers, everyone will enjoy an incredible experience on the MC250.
Saving the best ’til last, as some would say, our MC350F is the third and final motocross bike we’ve added to our line-up. With strong, usable power and nimble handling, it’s a bike designed for fun-filled weekends at the track with your buddies. The bike is super-lightweight and for those who dare to twist the throttle that little bit harder, it’s fearlessly fast too!
New models aside, our 2022 dirt bike range is packed with seriously capable, seriously fun motocross, enduro and cross-country models. With a total of nine amazing motocross bikes to choose from, when it comes to our enduro machines, we’re sticking to the four models we know riders love and trust. Each delivering incredible performance and reliability, our enduro line-up includes all of the most popular displacements. Be it one of our two-stroke or four-stroke bikes, now is the time to get on a GASGAS and hit the trails.
Want to remind yourself about the model designations these GASGAS machines use, or the componentry they run? Well, check out the specs for the brand’s 2022 MX, enduro and cross-country models.
As pointed out by GASGAS Australia’s Marketing Manager, Rosie Lalonde, Australia receives the “EU-spec” MX and enduro models, while the cross-country models – which Oz and NZ will only get in limited numbers late in the year – are all “US-spec”.
