GasGas Announces 2021 North American Line-up
Will compete AMA Supercross and Motocross with Troy Lee Designs
GasGas announced its 2021 model lineup, its first fully under the auspices of Pierer Mobility, with a range of 18 models for the North American market.
That, of course, means a range of enduro, cross-country, motocross, and mini motocross bikes that will share much in common with its corporate cousins from KTM and Husqvarna. So, expect similar engines, frames and WP suspension through out the lineup. GasGas also announced it will compete in the 2021 AMA Motocross and Supercross championships, partnering with Troy Lee Designs in the 250 and 450 divisions.
GasGas is best known for its trial bikes, and the Spanish brand will continue offer its trial lineup in three displacements.
The non-trial models will be fairly similar, with red powder-coated chromium molydenum steel frames and aluminum subframes. Most models will be equipped with WP Xplor inverted forks and rear shocks with linkage, just tuned for their specific applications.
2021 GasGas Motocross Models
The 2021 GasGas motocross lineup consists of four-stroke MC450F and MC250F models plus a MC125 two-stroke. Unlike Husqvarna and KTM, however, GasGas is not offering a 350cc model, focusing on the two four-stroke models that will be competing in AMA Supercross and Motocross.

2021 GasGas Mini Models
For younger riders, GasGas offers three gas-powered mini bikes plus the electric MC-E5. The range starts with the MC50 which features a 49cc Single with an automatic centrifugal clutch and a 26.2-inch seat height. From there, GasGas offers an upgrade to the MC65 with a larger engine and a six-speed manual transmission and a 29.5-inch seat height. For larger riders, the MC85 has a 34.4-inch seat height with a 19-inch front wheel and 16-inch rear.
The MC-E5 takes after the similar KTM SX-E5 and Husqvarna EE-5 with a 5 kW motor and a 907 Wh lithium-ion battery pack that GasGas claims will be enough for two hours of riding for at the lowest power mode for beginners, scaling up to 25 minutes at the highest mode. A full charge takes about an hour, claims GasGas, with an 80% charge achieved in 45 minutes.
You mean KTM announced their 2021 line up. What's the point of having KTM with 3 different names. This is like GM with their platform sharing.
A dirt biker can daydream of a red KTM with KYB suspension on it from the factory, but that will never happen as KTM owns WP. What will they do to differentiate GG other than a different color? Husky is barely different from it's KTM siblings now.
