GASGAS 2023 TRIAL BIKES: THE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS

1 month ago | Words: Andy Wigan | Photos: GASGAS Motorcycles

It’s easy to forget that adding a world-class trial bike to their model range was one of the driving forces behind KTM’s decision to purchase GASGAS in late 2019. At that time, KTM’s global head honcho, Stefan Pierer, specifically made the point that, “What we’re doing with GASGAS is clear, because we’re still missing the last product in the off-road world, which is a trials bike, and GASGAS has been a leading brand in that sector for many years”.

Given the fact that trial bike riding (and sales) has enjoyed somewhat of a resurgence in recent years, there’s little wonder that the combined two-wheeled might of KTM and GASGAS would look to develop a new-generation trial bike range before too long.

But have you ever wondered how the hell a motorcycle manufacturer goes about developing a whole new generation of motorcycles – to materially improve their performance, quality and rideability for factory and hobby riders alike? Well, it’s time to meet the team behind the research, design and development of the new 2023 GASGAS Trial range – what they call, “the best-performing trial bikes ever produced by GASGAS!”

This video offers a candid insight into the new bikes’ initial design concept through to the finished product, along with key personnel explaining their roles in the project – from analysing important data to making the best use of decades of trial experience and understanding the needs of the rider.
