With more red and more performance, it’s safe to say that GasGas has spiced it up with 16-new models for 2024. Every model comes equipped with the latest technology from the Spanish brand. There’s hardly a single part on the new range of bikes that haven’t been upgraded or refined, according to the company.
All 2024 models are powered by new, lighter engines, which produce more torque and high-revving power. They’re then fitted inside new frames with a slight backward tilt to lower the front sprocket, centralize the weight, and improve handling.
GasGas added two new models to the enduro range – the EC 450F and EC 500F. Both big-bore bikes are suited to open and flowing trails and feature all the same components as the rest of the range, including Braktec brakes, WP suspension, and enduro-specific PANKL transmissions. The rear suspension is designed to soak up small chop and hard hits with ease, the company notes.
