That is a great article, it seems that they are on track to producing a superior motorcycle.

To me it sounds like they have a good strategy they follow. Sad to hear about the 125 and the 200....
But very good that GasGas listened to the market (Kayaba)!

There is no complaint in the reaction of Torrot-Gasgas after all the turmoil and imho the 2018 model is almost a catch up with the 2016-17 competition. We shouldn't forget though that there is still a lot to be done with direct injection on the way! Even more weight reduction, internal starter to name a few... KYB, after Marzocchis problematic production was a logical decision (TMs are with kayaba too)

I'd love a TM, and could get one, but still kick start only, and carry a hefty price tag.. similar depreciation and boutique brand as gas gas.

IMO, if GG can keep their current pricing (or at least stay significantly cheaper then the competition) they will be moving forward.

Probably be 2020 before I can consider a new Gasser. In the mean time I still have one which costs little to own, and still pondering adding a YZ125 to the stable.

I'm with you on all your thoughts except TMs 2T models which are too aggressive for me and need to be pushed hard. A four stroke 250/300 TM is a different thingy

I love a small bore 2 stroke. I offered to buy a KX125 from a guy this morning.

I think I know my dream garage.

TM 144
GasGas EC250
Sherco 300 4T
Beta 480 dual sport
Trials bike
My BMW touring bike

But realistically that will never happen.

I do like that GG is looking at 4T engines. I think in this market they'll need to do that to survive.
