Future of Gasgas

Recommended Posts

That would mean they will not supply parts for the pre KTM models like they did with Husky. Their business model is to use the same components across their brands so it wouldn't make sense for them to support the Pro motor. Maybe they will use the Freeride motor as the starting point. I'd like them to use their 150 motor which is as light as the Pro. Bored out to 180cc it would be the bike for the masses.

The video makes it sound like KTM will introduce a GasGas trials powered by KTM by model year 2021.   I think that's pretty exciting.  I want one now!

Does it? A new engine? why would they do that and how could they justify developmental costs vs. sales?

In the video he says the "off road" bikes will be based on the KTM platform.  I understood this to be Enduro and Motocross.  Whenever Trials is mentioned it is specifically called out as Trials.

The Pro engine is 18 years old. About time for a new design.

From a technical perspective: Why a new design?

Trials riding is more about the rider, especially for me. Getting a new machine is not that much of an issue. All makes need a variety of products to generate income. To give Gasgas credit they do have the electric. And I got the Contact.

4rt 05?

Sherco 99?

Beta 95?

Trs is a loose gas gas copy?

So why is gas gas any different?

I do not belive in KTM spending money in a new motor. 

Maybe some minor tweaks and  (why not?) a tpi in a few years.

Most likely to happen is Brembo brakes and (why not 2?) WP forks in a few years.
