Anybody else notice this model only shows up on the US site?
There's a first.
I think it looks cool. Does Gas Gas use KTM engines in their bikes, or is that Beta?
Those aren't just wings. Check the high res photos, they're tanks cross-braced and secured to the frame.
Looks like all this extra stuff added 33 lbs over the standard 450 (293lbs vs 260lbs advertised)
I wonder if the one shown is just a prototype, someone's obviously been flogging it - The knobs are half gone on those tires, some of the plastic and graphics are chewed up and the chain is rusty. They could have at least put new tires on and lubed the chain for the photo shoot.
The fairing and front fender are obviously fiberglass. (look at the large file photos) If they're still fiberglass for production I'd relocate those front blinkers before I even rode it.
The front cable routing is also pretty bizarre. They've got it running above the front wheel between the forks and under the triple clamp. Where does it go when the forks fully collapse?
Importer told me they are limited number of these and frame is special as well as gearing..
Actually, GasGas has the 1st bike with EFI in the market, long before any Jap or other...
Maybe this will wake up KTM.
KTM, HONDA...etc etc.
On a more possible note, I hope this kind of riding (rally) picks up more so we can get more of a variety of bikes and parts and well everything. I doubt it but man it would be cool to see more bikes like this or kits for popular bikes that are cheap and practical.
Uh...looks like a starter drivetrain on the LH side to me...can you say Mitsuba?
Why don't you guys just favor population control while you're at it?
Land developers first, then go for 5 bucks a gallon gas. Hopefully, that will keep city's from spreading. Cities need to go up, not out.
Not a photoshop this bike is fore real I want one
oooh that is a sweet bike
any idead on costs
scroll up to top o page!
Thx for that. What's up with those Halley bikes? I mean, what are they for?
Does it come with tow hooks??
Someone is finally listening! When do we get to ride it?
Cummon Honda.....get off your but.
Badass, functional or not this is a major move forward for a motorcycle company to offer this level of prep for $9500. I see one in my future, flat f'n cool.
Got a message back from Gas Gas USA today...
price now $10,500 due to Euro...
Absolutely awesomely cooltistic (new Mikeism...) to the Nth degree!!!! I LOVE it! Any forward thinking, do something that others aren't is just a winner in my book!!! KUDOS GG....
Count me out because of the kick start only... But, for long distance dual sport with high speed nasties (I CRAVE that shit...) What more could you want?
Both Thumbs UP!!!!!
