2018

Just in time, as we went to print, Gas Gas pre­sented the new TXT GP 2018 which they claim to be the most ex­clu­sive and wildly ex­cit­ing thor­ough­bred of its tri­als gen­er­a­tion. A spe­cial edi­tion with a dis­tinc­tive sport­ing char­ac­ter, Gas Gas has taken care o

PROUD

At first glance it shows the proud name Gas Gas, which car­ries a strong her­itage of sport­ing suc­cess in the off-road world, but on closer in­spec­tion the new model’s changes make it stand out loud and proud as the ‘GP’. This new model is of­fered to the pas­sion­ate fol­low­ers who strive to ex­pe­ri­ence the same sen­sa­tions as an of­fi­cial rider com­pet­ing on an au­then­tic tri­als thor­ough­bred. In its tire­less quest for ex­cel­lence Gas Gas has made a com­mit­ment to a long list of top qual­ity com­po­nents for its most ex­clu­sive tri­als model, the new Gas Gas TXT GP 2018. A di­rect legacy of its vast ex­pe­ri­ence in the world of com­pe­ti­tion, it is a lon­gawaited limited series that will only be pro­duced in the Salt – Girona fac­tory in the 300, 280, 250 and 125 cc ca­pac­i­ties.

A ‘SPE­CIAL EDI­TION’ WITH ‘SPORT­ING CHAR­AC­TER’

The ex­tra­or­di­nary qual­ity of its com­po­nents is one of the main sym­bols of iden­tity of this ‘Spe­cial Edi­tion’ ma­chine from an ex­clu­sive series that re­turns to the em­blem­atic red colour of the brand, whilst mix­ing small brush strokes of black and white to high­light even more its rac­ing and sports ap­pear­ance. This is a mo­tor­cy­cle in which at first glance the Ren­thal han­dle­bars stand out to­gether with its cor­re­spond­ing pro­tec­tors as well as the red high-tem­per­a­ture re­sis­tant cool­ing hoses. There are vis­i­ble de­tails that join the oth­ers which may go un­no­ticed but are just as im­por­tant, such as the ti­ta­nium front pipe or the new alu­minium sus­pen­sion clamps. El­e­ments have been made with the best ma­te­ri­als and com­pounds on the mar­ket to help lighten the weight of this ag­ile, ma­noeu­vrable and pow­er­ful new model.

RAC­ING PARTS FOR PRE­CI­SION RID­ING

The new Gas Gas model goes to great lengths in the com­plex mat­ter of bal­ance with the ad­di­tion of a new Tech front fork and Oh­lin’s rear shock ab­sorber. A gold-colour sus­pen­sion setup, passed down di­rectly from the rac­ing de­part­ment, adopts new springs and ad­justers to of­fer ad­di­tional sta­bil­ity and trac­tion to this model. De­signed to sat­isfy the wide range of the brand’s cus­tomers with­out in­ter­fer­ing in its strong com­pe­ti­tion char­ac­ter, Gas Gas has de­cided to im­ple­ment a vari­able preload to the clutch spring of its new TXT GP so that each rider can ad­just the clutch to their own type and level of rid­ing; more or less ex­treme. A clutch preload sys­tem gives an im­prove­ment in its sen­si­tiv­ity and feel and in ad­di­tion helps to ex­tend its life.

MAX­I­MUM QUAL­ITY DOWN TO THE SMALL­EST DE­TAIL

The list of new parts in­creases when we go into the de­tails of the model, and es­pe­cially the engine, with the in­cor­po­ra­tion of Boye­sen car­bon reeds, dual spark CDI and a closed-core coil – both de­signed by Hidria – and a new air fil­ter box, also made in car­bon fi­bre, which con­trib­utes to a greater gas flow

through­out. Im­prove­ments in torque at both low and medium revs have also been made. A new cylin­der head and cylin­der head in­sert sys­tem al­lows an even greater in­crease in the com­pres­sion of the engine, im­prov­ing its com­pe­ti­tion be­hav­iour. This spe­cial edi­tion ma­chine also com­plies with all re­quire­ments of the Euro4 reg­u­la­tions and comes strictly num­bered in a series, eas­ily dis­tin­guish­able by the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion plate on the Gas Gas TXT GP. It will be avail­able next month from your lo­cal of­fi­cial Gas Gas dealer.
