GasGas takes a step ahead in its quest for perfection and balance with the launch of the new GasGas TXT Racing. A new and evolved generation of Trial motorcycles that offer more balance, traction and control, thanks to the use of new components and novelties in its settings. High-quality details that may not go unnoticed to the touch of the most demanding riders, to continue being the first choice for the great Trial fans.
A major part of the improvements made in the new TXT Racing range are aimed at increasing stability and balance, like the suspension with front fork that this time has the same settings as its racing siblings. GasGas R&D Department worked specifically in the rear end, which in the new models secures a perfect traction thanks to the new Öhlins mono shock absorber, combined with the Regina chain and the refined adjustment of the forces caused by its pull, increasing safety when facing big obstacles and steps.
The new TXT inherit the spirit and the Racing family name of their predecessors and include specific novelties in the engine. The 2018 models mount a double-spark CDI Hidria that fills their response in the lower range. The cylinder’s thermodynamic has also been improved thanks to the new interchangeable heads, which allow to modify the compression and achieve a delivery that is equally powerful, but more refined and progressive, being able to adjust itself to different circumstances, such as high altitude, where the engine’s performance is usually reduced due to the lack of oxygen. In the engine, it also stands out the exhaust curve with eight stainless steel elements, and the new clutch with variable preload with 3 positions, which helps improving both the delivery and the feedback, as the response can be adapted to be more or less radical as per the preferences of each rider. We cannot forget that it will also help extend the clutch’s lifespan.
These models still put their trust in the light black aluminium wheels and the prestigious Michelin tyres to keep their excellent grip on any kind of surface, and they also include the usual safety systems ‘man overboard’ and rear crown, as per the FIM rules. Novelties that are all added to a new image that keeps the TXT Racing 125/250/280/300 among the most attractive Trial models on which defying gravity laws.
