Default Any news on the GasGas factory

Hi Guys, is there any news available with regards to the GasGas factory and the halt in manufacturing of the bikes?? Looking at purchasing a new bike but need clarity on the situation. Its seems to be going on for quite a while now!

This has dragged on way too long. What was to be a 2 week restructuring, has turned into a 2 month shuttering of the factory. I'd say production of anymore 2015's is lost at this point. My local dealer also sells Shercos and Betas, so I guess I have choices for a new 2016 bike.

Meanwhile, Beta is rolling out it's new 300 X-Trainer. I think they're going to sell those little bikes as fast as they can make them.

I would like to buy a 2016 GG. If they pull through, there won't be any more 2015s, they will need to jam out their 2016s ASAP.

I'm doing a full service on my 2011 so I will be ok until the 2016s get here. I' not riding a darn PUMPKIN!

The production run on the '15 models would have ended by now.

I believe all that was settled and a new CEO was in office. I would like to think that the new CEO will seize this opportunity to get a jump on the competition and roll out the 2016 models early here in North America.

I will be happy with one much smaller healthy company building nice trials.
GasGas must concentrate where they are leaders.
After some time, if everything went ok, they can develop one really new enduro .

Well, this doesn't sound promising at all. It seems like a lot of dealers are dropping the line and selling the remaining bikes at a big discount. I may have to get one of the last 2015s.
