Such sad times for SA GasGas fans
 
It seems that GasGas's' days in South Africa are done.

Nobody is showing any interest in promoting or taking on the brand despite the re=launch and the exciting developments with Project Phoenix.

I even tried raising funds and spoken to existing dealers to try get a focused dealership going, and everyone is hedging their bets.

:(

We are going to have to look at Beta for next years buy, they're marketing and promoting and growing well here.

Soooooooo sad!!!!!

I think the year of no bikes really injured all the hard work that rockgarden put in in building up the brand - they were the benchmark for parts and service in SA compared against any brand. But if you can't sellbikes and are still considered a small brand it can only hurt.

I have not got any comment from them regarding new bikes but at least they seem to be continuing with spares (or maybe I have just been lucky with my orders falling into the "still in stock" bracket

But yes I have also been eying the betas for my next bike ...

I rode a Beta 2016 300 Race at the event today that a buddy has for a lap since I have been considering a Beta 4stroke Dual sport bike . It was tight and lots of turning and I was really glad to get back on My Gasser . Good luck with maybe getting an importer .

I'm going to ride a demo Beta 300 this weekend.

Would really like a 2018 GasGas tho.

not sure what type of riding you do, but i really enjoyed the xtrainer, but part of me says that it is a roof bike or a second bike (... hmmm like i even manage to find time to ride 1 bike)
