As many probably know, the Spanish motorcycle company GasGas was purchased by the Pierer Mobility Group late last year. Pierer Mobility is the owners of KTM and Husqvarna, as well as a strategic partner of India’s Bajaj Auto, a global leader in motorcycle manufacturing.
While the enduro bikes and future MX GasGas motorcycles will be using the same platform as the current KTM and Husqvarna motorcycles, the 2020 GasGas trials bikes retain the Spanish design, and that’s a good thing.
The change in ownership did result in the consolidation of the GasGas trials lineup, however. For 2020, GasGas offers the TXT Racing trials bike in four different displacement sizes—125, 250, 280, and 300. All share the same chassis and, other than the 125’s smaller cylinder, they are indistinguishable in appearance.
The 2020 GasGas TXT Racing 250 is probably the best option for most entry to mid-level riders. Experienced trials riders will need no introduction to the TXT or its components, which are pretty standard to all trials bikes. The Braktec calipers and hydraulics, Michelin Trial Competition X11 radial tubeless rear tire, Keihin 28mm PWK carburetor, 39mm Tech fork, and the Öhlins shock are top-notch.
