GG UK riders

Recommended Posts

So is this the beginning of the end for GG UK as we know (have known) it?

with Price signing for Vertigo, Thorpe seemingly moving on, Haslam riding Montesa it’s doesn’t look like GG UK will remain for long and it will amalgamate in to KTM UK (makes sense, why would KTM need a UK GG importer?) but seems a shame that any supported riders are having to look elsewhere. 
 

is there anything remotely official from GG UK or KTM about what’s happening?

This was on the GG Motos UK FB page....

Happy New Year from myself and all at GAS GAS MOTOS LTD.
2020 is a new chapter for GG now that they have the big brother of KTM to guide them. I am both excited and a little fearful of the change but have faith that the GG brand will gather momentum strongly through 2020. JST JOHN SHIRT and our amazing staff stand firm and assure customers old and new that we are 100% onboard for this new chapter looking ‘forward’ positively 🙏🙌.
I wish everyone a healthy and successful New year 🙏🙌💪
Regards
John

Sam haslam has swapped to montesa for qite different reasons.

Jack Price is wtc so needs financial support from the factory more than anything.

I think youre reading more into these two than there actually is.

They are 2019 Models at £6000 each.  Do GasGas have UK models and Euro models (Like Beta do?) if yes then these will be different from UK supplied ones.

2020 Models from a dealer £6300ish

So £300 less to have last years model and if you traded it in next year it would be worth less as it's the 2019 model..

Shirty seems to be concentrating on his offroad clothing business. He sent me an email today advertising trials shirts and jeans at keen prices, not keen enough to persuade me into such lurid designs though.

No idea but they are listing them for sale so I had assumed they were/would be available.  I would be holding out for the new model if I was trading in.

Have you asked a dealer lately? This came from Mark Berg the COO of GGNA, to my local dealer. I'm guessing John Shirt Jr knows the same info, and has told dealers.
