If there is one big winner from GasGas coming under KTM ownership, its kids.
When it comes to competition bikes, the range available to the minis has been limited to just three brands, those being Husqvarna, KTM and Yamaha.
With GasGas coming under the same banner as Husqvarna and KTM, the Spanish brand now has access to the same architecture - including the mini motorcycle range.
The 2021 range starts with the MC50, the first of four models designed for youth riders aged four to 15. Mirroring the KTM and Husqvarna lineups, the 2021 GasGas line features three high-revving, fun-filled 2-strokes, including the MC 50, MC 65 and MC 85 allow riders to unite in the dirt, confident of having the very best bikes.
An exciting addition to the GasGas lineup is the electric MC-E5, GasGas’ version of the all-electric KTM SX-E5 and Husqvarna EE 5.
The addition of the peewee machines to the GasGas range not only gives aspiring riders a wider base of options to start their competition career on, but also gives GasGas the ability to hook riders into the brand early.
For a brand with a history as complicated as GasGas, this should be a strategy that keeps the Spanish brand in the forefront for years to come.
Currently, OnThrottle is awaiting pricing and estimated availability dates of the new GasGas range for the New Zealand market from KTM NZ.
