GasGas Gearing Up to Make Street Bike Models

Ever since Pierer Mobility (the holding company for KTM and Husqvarna) took control of GasGas, we have been wondering what was to come of the Spanish dirt bike brand.

But, thanks to the investor document that the Austrian brand published this week, we can see what is in store for GasGas in the near future, and it is certainly interesting.

The document reveals an interesting notion, namely that GasGas will make its foray into the on-road segments, with three street bike models planned for the coming future.

According to the pitch deck, GasGas will offer two naked bikes, in the 250cc and 800cc displacements. The 250cc machine will surely use a single-cylinder engine, likely from the KTM lineup.

Meanwhile, the 800cc naked bike is surely going to use the twin-cylinder 790 platform from the Austrian brand, with GasGas also seemingly cooking a sport-touring version of the bike as well (shown in the document with panniers). 

There isn’t a clear timeline on when we will see GasGas entering the on-road market, but the easy guess is that it will be in the next couple of years.

As such, it will be interesting to see how Pierer handles three motorcycle brands with heavily overlapping products, which are also based off the same two-wheeled platforms.
