MURRIETA, California—Let’s get on the gas! GasGas Motorcycles North America is pleased to introduce the 2022 range of motocross, enduro and cross-country models. We’re super-proud of the bikes we launched just under a year ago, but we’re going a little bigger for 2022, adding four new machines to ensure we offer the most comprehensive dirt bike line-up there is! From the new MC 250, EX 250 and EC 250 screaming 2-strokes to the best-of-both-worlds MC 350F grunting 4-stroke, the GasGas model range has never looked – or sounded – so good.
GasGas Motorcycles launch 17-bike 2022 model range
Four all-new models join the motocross, cross-country and enduro lineup.
Extensive range of Technical Accessories and Apparel
Ensuring all bikes deliver vibrant styling, the latest technology and ease-of-use, we’ve established a 17-bike-strong range of no-nonsense, user-friendly, performance off-road motorcycles. All benefiting from the group’s robust, high-performance technical base, each one of our bikes embraces a distinct Spanish style as we continue to celebrate the rich and proud heritage GasGas has in trial competition and off-road racing. The best way to celebrate this heritage, of course, is to build on this base with new models, new titles and new riders.
Delivering on our plan to bring fresh energy to the MX scene, and with a coveted AMA 450SX race-win now under our belt, it was time to expand the line! The MC range now includes the highly-requested, all-new MC 250 2-stroke and MC 350F 4-stroke machines. The new MC 250 delivers everything 2-stroke lovers need to race or play and, most importantly, enjoy a dirt-ripping, heart-pumping ride. Turn to the new MC 350F to strike the perfect balance between motor and mobility, while play-riding or riding to win. Now boasting an even more complete range of motocross bikes, our no-nonsense approach to performance means all of our models deliver proven technology, vibrant styling and an overall simplicity that invites riders of all types to unite in the dirt. Enjoying fun-filled muddy weekends riding and racing with friends is what our MC 125, MC 250, MC 250F, MC 350F and MC 450F motocross bikes are all about.
We want to make sure kids have fun too! Focused on bringing new riders into the offroad world, our model range features four GasGas minis, designed for kids ages four to 15 years. With three high-revving, fun-filled 2-strokes, our MC 50, MC 65 and MC 85 allow riders to unite in the dirt, confident of having the very best bikes. To keep young riders’ confidence high, the MC 85 is available in either a 19/16 or 17/14 wheel combination. Our all-electric MC-E 5 is super quiet and super fun – a fully-fledged, quick-charging competition bike that’s perfect for beginner all the way to advanced riders, while benefitting from zero emissions and almost zero sound. The GasGas mini range ensures no-nonsense performance bikes that are built to excite and encourage youngsters to develop new skills.
True to the brand’s enduro heritage, the EC 300 can now count the new EC 250 as a quick-revving, nimble stablemate. The halo EC 300 delivers the unmatched thrill of offroad riding like no other, while the EC 250 is the easy-to-ride, easy-to-race middleweight that you can trust to provide torque and high-revving fun in ample supply. Enduro is at the heart of GasGas. That’s why our EC 250 and EC 300 focus on ensuring fun and putting a serious enduro bike into the hands of riders who love offroad racing. Our competition 2-strokes feature the latest technology and celebrate our unique Spanish heritage and enduro know-how. Utilizing a well-proven performance platform, our enduro bikes are all about pure riding enjoyment.
GasGas motorcycles aren’t about compromises or limits. We want to deliver exactly what you need to tackle any terrain with ease and smiles. Our dedicated cross-country models clearly illustrate this approach, and sit shoulder-to-shoulder with our MC and EC models to offer playful, energetic offroad performance that meets the needs of woods racers of all stripes. To fill out the ranks of this dirt-ripping cross-country collection, the comprehensive model range has added the EX 250 quarter-liter 2-stroke to provide offroad riders and racers with a flickable, high-revving cross-country screamer. Get ready to own the woods!
