GasGas is getting back in the game in North America. Although the brand has seen a somewhat diminished presence in the US and Canada in the past few years, it’s making strong plays under its new Pierer AG ownership. For 2022, we’re getting four new dirt bikes for the North American market.
Remember, GasGas is now closely tied to KTM and Husqvarna, so expect to see these new machines dependent on technology from those companies.
For starts, we are getting three new 250 two-strokes, obviously built around the same basic platform. The new EC250 is a fuel-injected two-stroke enduro, with price starting at $ 9,549 in the US and $10,749 in Canada. It’s running on WP XPLOR forks, with brakes and hydraulic clutch from Braktec, Neken handlebar and chrome-moly frame. The six-speed gearbox is configured specifically for enduro usage. See more details at the GasGas website.
There’s a new cross-country machine as well, the EX250. Once again, a fuel-injected 250 two-stroke, with WP XACT forks, Brembo brake calipers, hydraulic clutch, and e-start. MSRP starts at $9,499 in the States, $10,749 in Canada. More info at the GasGas site.
Finally, GasGas adds two motocross machines. Unsurprisingly, one is a 250 two-stroke, the MC250. This bike has a Mikuni carb, five-speed Pankl gearbox, and Brembo brake and hydraulic clutch. Asking price starts at $7,899 in the US, $8,949 in Canada—see more here.
The four-stroke MC350F also joins the MX lineup for 2022. This electric start, fuel-injected bike runs on WP XACT forks. MSRP starts at $9,299 in the US, and $10,649 in Canada.
