2021 GasGas Motorcycles First Look

A glance at GasGas' first-ever production motocross bikes among others.

Since KTM’s purchase of GasGas in September 2019, the Austrian manufacturer has transplanted some of its teams and riders from orange bikes to GasGas machinery, most notably what is now known as the Standing Construct GasGas Factory Racing team and its MXGP class riders Glenn Coldenhoff and Ivo Monticelli. Other riders who have been moved from orange to red include Red Bull KTM Factory Racing pilot Taddy Blazusiak, who became the main rider on the enduro side of the GasGas brand. The bikes they competed on inevitably gave us an idea of what the production bikes might look like. Recently, GasGas announced its full lineup of 2021 motorcycles including the full-size motocross, cross-country, enduro, and trials bikes, as well as youth motocross bikes.

Unsurprisingly, GasGas is going to campaign its new models in a variety of different racing disciplines here in the United States. Under the guidance of 10-time AMA National Trials champion Geoff Aaron, who serves as GasGas North America’s Off-Road Race Team manager, the brand will continue with its factory trials team and will also work with the GasGas Coastal Factory Racing Team and their team manager Barry Hawk as they prepare to contest the Grand National Cross-Country (GNCC) and Kenda AMA National Enduro series in 2021.

Also, Troy Lee’s Supercross and motocross team will be switching from KTM to GasGas for 2021, and with that, the organization’s name will now be Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GasGas Factory Racing. The team will continue to contest the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series and Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship in the 250cc division and will also be adding a 450 rider, who is widely rumored to be Justin Barcia.

Back on the subject of GasGas' new motorcycles, we have included photos of all of the brand’s bikes in its 2021 lineup in this article to provide a first look at them and will publish a more in-depth story to once we’ve scrutinized the differences between these models and their KTM and Husqvarna counterparts. Stay tuned for that story, but in the meantime, feast your eyes upon GasGas' first-ever production motocross bikes as well as its full lineup of off-road and trials motorcycles.
