GASGAS ANNOUNCES ALL-NEW 700cc MODELS

3 weeks ago | Words: Andy Wigan | Photos: GASGAS Images

When the first KTM-owned GASGAS models appeared in early 2021, the model line-up was intentionally “condensed”. In that initial range, GASGAS only produced four enduro models and three MX models, and carefully positioned itself as a fun, non-intimidating and more affordable ‘pathway’ brand into the KTM group. For 2022, their off-road model line-up was expanded with the addition of three all-new MX models: the MC350F, MC250, and small-wheel MC85, plus a few cross-country models (that were previously only available in the USA). And while there may be no new MX models for 2023, GASGAS has just revealed that they’ll be adding all-new 700cc enduro and supermoto models to their range – the ES700 and SM700, respectively, which appear to use the same platform as their KTM 690 and Husqvarna 701 counterparts.

The GASGAS SM700 and ES700 are expected on dealer floors in Australia and New Zealand from August, 2022. Prices that are yet to be confirmed. Meantime, here’s a promo video about these two all-new models, followed by the full PR from GASGAS…

Say hello to the two new red-hot singles in town – the GASGAS SM700 and the GASGAS ES700! Introducing the playful and vibrant GASGAS character to the street, these high-performance siblings deliver a distinct, upright and inviting approach to riding. With powerful single-cylinder motors, razor-sharp handling and the latest rider aids, enjoying city streets and off-road adventures has never been so much fun!

MODEL PHILOSOPHY

Just like with our off-road bikes, the introduction of the GASGAS SM700 and the GASGAS ES700 is all about bringing something a little different to the party, bringing bikes that put a smile on people’s faces. With distinct, reliable, high-performance bikes that reflect our Spanish heritage and fun-loving personality, we welcome every kind of rider and encourage them to GET ON THE GAS!

Re-establishing ourselves as a leading force in off-road racing and riding during the last two years, in successfully introducing a complete off-road line-up, we quickly went from being the new kids to picking up race wins and championship trophies. But it’s not just the off-road world we’re interested in. Just like we did in the dirt, we’re again looking to re-establish ourselves and have some serious fun on the street!

GASGAS street bikes benefit from an agile, high-performance technical base. Designed to deliver the very best handling, and constructed at the lowest possible weight, the chromium-molybdenum steel trellis frame ensures razor-sharp cornering and straight-line stability. Further enhancing the riding experience of these super singles, a die-cast aluminum swingarm offers just the right amount of flex to transfer the unrestricted power to the ground, while a 13.5-litre fuel tank integrated into the polyamide subframe keeps the center of gravity as low as possible. For total control and stability when drifting into the corners, the latest Bosch ABS systems and a PASC slipper clutch balances the bike perfectly for precise turning.

The beating heart of these bikes is undoubtedly the motors! Producing a peak 74 horsepower at 8000rpm and pumping out serious torque numbers, you can ride these versatile bikes your own way. Beneath the fresh red livery, which aligns these street models perfectly with our EC and MC line-up, there’s plenty of hidden magic going on. State-of-the-art electronics always ensure precise throttle response with power on tap, while smooth shifting up and down the six-speed gearbox is assured thanks to the integrated Quickshifter.

Complete with the latest EURO5-compliant exhaust systems, advanced Ride Modes, and assembled with quality components throughout, the GASGAS SM700 and ES700 deliver pure riding pleasure, both on and off the road.

SM700 – THE SUPERMOTO

Bringing single-cylinder fun to any daily commute, no matter where you’re headed the GASGAS SM700 is a big-bore Supermoto that guarantees riders will always arrive with a smile on their face! With punchy power that’s perfect for lively urban street riding, the SM700 delivers class-leading performance, dynamic on-road handling, advanced electronics, together with a vibrant GASGAS look. Getting from A to B has never been easier, more enjoyable, or more exhilarating!

ES700 – THE ENDURO

Delivering versatility to the max to ensure every ride is an enjoyable one, on the ES700 all riders can explore remote trails, enjoy mixed-surface adventures, or simply add a little more fun to their daily commute. A playful, do-it-all dual-sport performer, the GASGAS ES700 mixes high-quality, street-legal performance with proven off-road capabilities to proudly bring the playful and vibrant GASGAS attitude to the street. And with its 13.5-litre fuel tank, comfortable riding position, high-spec equipment, and proven 74hp single-cylinder motor, there’s nowhere the ES700 won’t go. How far you take it is up to you!

TECHNICAL ACCESSORIES

To ensure riders get the very best out of the SM700 and ES700, GASGAS has a complete range of Technical Accessories and Apparel. Making customization and personalization super easy, GASGAS has all the technical parts needed to ramp up the protection, dial in the style, and unlock even more big-bore performance.
