    Except they're made in Spain. Emerged from the ashes of Bultaco.

    Cheaper alternative to a KTM. Still good bikes. You won't have the dealer support network of a KTM or easiness getting parts, but for 95% of riders they are very good. I wouldn't buy any of their 4t products, but I'd jump on one of their 2t without worrying.

    . . . and marketing mistake (or legal issues) to not use the iconic name/logo . . .
    and I'm told these here oldtimers used to do super human stuff on these bikes, as well as combat wombats and elsinores. Wimps today with their orangecycles and protective gear. :jack

    I had an older GasGas. Handled great, top end suspension and components, with lots of cross over to mainstream bikes for some maintenance parts like filters, pads and plastic. I sold mine when the company was in trouble (and mine was an oddball in a company of oddballs) due to part availability. It was a 2003 FSE 450, 4 stroke, fuel injected. once I figured out the system it was fine, but god help you if the electric start didn't work.

    I believe the logo was sold separate. Hughes Bultaco is a Bultaco family dealer/guy up north in NY whom I believe at one time actually owned the trademarks to the logo through some lawyer and firm.

    I heard Gasgas was recently bought by a big electric scooter company in Spain and were not interested in supplying parts for anything before they bought it ??? Buyer be ware.

    If you had a clapped out S, or could plat one, maybe an E would be a good buy at 2500...

    I looked at that one when it was for sale last time. It’s been down on the street on the right side. I couldn’t get by there until late this week, I’m headed out of town
