A small-scale reflection of the brilliant TXT saga

The similarities between them all are obvious. This is also true for the new TXT 80 Racing, a children’s bike that not only shares the frame as its big cylindered brothers but also its looks and decoration. It also has elements such as the exhaust and silencer of a bike that has adapted its size to the height and weight of the smallest rider, taking into account both comfort and ergonomics when ridden and taking command of the situation.

In this waythe new TXT 80 Racing has taken on board various changessuch as the incorporation of foot-pegs positioned further forward and slightly higher so children can have a better posture on the bike and reach the handlebar and the brake and clutch levers more easily, giving a better sense of safety and control

These new characteristics are added to the adaptation of the swing-arm, which has been shortened together with the wheels that have been made smaller with 19” on the front and 17” on the backThis bike also takes the lower weight of its rider into account and so has new front forks and a rear monoshock specifically designed for this model allowing for the lower weight.

The smallest members of the family are traditionally those that are most looked afterand the new Gas Gas TXT 80 Racing is no exception. In the heart of the factory in Girona, the R+D department has been tasked with taking care of even the smallest details of the little Gas Gas trial bike

Get started in the world of trial with the new Gas Gas Trial School, a bike with features good enough so you won’t miss out on any of the authentic Gas Gas spiritbut with a smoother, more easy-going riding style just right for entry level riders.Aimed at beginners as well as veteran riders who are looking for a bike that is going to give them the maximum amount of fun on an enjoyable day’s trial riding, without the high-end features of a competition bike. And all of this at a price that won’t break the bank.

Without losing that Gas Gas trial and off-road characterthe new Trial School is adapted to a level less demanding than that of the professionals. This is for riders who are more interested in a leisure sports activity or riding as a hobby and are looking for pure fun in a day of trial. To do this we have simplified some components, such as the suspension, which are elements that are overlooked by riders who are not so expert in the question of adjustments and fine-tuning.

Gas Gas aims to satisfy the demand for fun from riders with this easy to ride and easy to maintain trial bike. A Gas Gas bike made with high quality components but without the corresponding increase in cost. A product adapted to the needs of an entry level riderfans of a more relaxed, traditional style of trial looking for a bike to enjoy getting out and about on at a lower price.

And although it seems like a contradiction in terms, the new Gas Gas Trial School has come up with a magic formula for a bike that is both fun and relaxed without losing any of that authentic Gas Gas character.

How have we managed thisFirstlywith suspension adjustments and engine mapping pre-set for a mid-level rider and so avoiding the common pitfalls of attempting to adjust settings in the hands of the non-expert.

Secondlyby offering only one size of engine125 cc two-strokeAn engine size that helps a rider get on well with the bike without unpleasant surprises for any riders regardless of ability.

And last but not leastan excellent geometry and balance with regard to mass distribution. Both the front forks as well as the rear suspension of this model are slightly heavier than the rest of the series allowing better handling and traction in the new Gas Gas Trial School on all sorts of terrain.
