Street Legal GasGas ES 700 Photos Leak Ahead of Official Announcement
GasGas SM 700 supermoto also expected April 26
GasGas is preparing to reveal its first street-legal models tomorrow, but photos of one of the models have already leaked online.
As we were first to confirm back in February, GasGas will be adding two street legal models to its lineup, the SM 700 supermoto and the ES 700 dual-sport. Over the last week, GasGas has been teasing an announcement on social media, hinting at two new models. Most notably, the teaser shows one bike equipped with mirrors, which suggests a street legal model, a first for the Spanish brand.
Later posts confirmed a reveal set for April 26, showing more details including a headlight. Though the launch isn’t until tomorrow, it appears GasGas’ web team has already been prepping its official site. A landing page for new GasGas “Travel” models popped up online last week and was quickly taken down again. Italian site Moto.it was first to publish the leak, but its post has also been taken down. Thanks to Google, we’ve been able to pull up a cached version of the page and get our hands on it, including the first photos.
Official specs and details were not revealed, but the text confirms the ES 700. Translated from Italian, it reads:
On the road, off the road … go everywhere!
A commuter bike ready for the road, super competent off-road and full of GASGAS DNA! Combining high-quality, road-approved performance with proven off-road capability, the ES 700 proudly brings GASGAS’s playful and vibrant attitude to the road. Perfect for mixed-surface adventures and to liven up any daily commute, the GASGAS ES 700 is a playful and versatile dual-sport artist.
The photos reveal a model that looks very similar to the ES 700’s Pierer Mobility cousins, the KTM 690 Enduro R and the Husqvarna 701 Enduro dual-sports. The engine, frame look nearly identical to the KTM and Husqvarna models, which are also categorized as “Travel” models by their respective brands.
We can therefore assume the ES 700 will use a similar 693cc Single, which claims 74 hp and 54.2 lb-ft on the 690 Enduro R. The suspension is provided by WP, another Pierer brand, but it remains to be seen if they are the same spec as the KTM or Husqvarna models.
We haven’t been able to find a similar landing page for the GasGas SM 700, but we have been able to find mentions of Supermoto wheels in Google searches of GasGas’ website. The excerpts in the search results indicate two Supermoto wheel options in GasGas’ accessories. After visiting the pages themselves, it appears the Supermoto references have been removed.
We expect the GasGas SM 700 will be the red brand’s take on the KTM 690 SMC R and Husqvarna 701 Supermoto.
All will be confirmed tomorrow, but the evidence says we should expect GasGas to announce the new street-legal SM 700 and ES 700.
