GasGas has probably one of the coolest brand name of all motorbikes. Well, at least the origin of its name is. The brand, launched in the mid 1980s and synonymous with trials bikes, takes its name from its Spanish roots and inspired from the phrase 'Vamos! Gas a fondo... gas gaaas!!!’. This translates to ‘C’mon, give it full gas!!!, Go... faster, faster!’. So to make it even faster, the phrase was simply shortened to be known as 'GASGAS'.
The company originally began in 1974 when Narcis Casas and Joseph M. Piebernat established a chain of stores specialising in, and selling products for the trials market. The financial demise of Bultaco in the seventies meant they had no bikes to sell in their shops, so Gas Gas was born out of that need but it wasn’t until they received an injection of cash in 1984 that production of motorcycles bagan in Salt, Girona.
Early bikes were predominantly trials models, but a few trail, enduro and entry-level street models surfaced along the way. Pretty quickly, GASGAS established itself as a key player on the trials scene from the late 1980s. This focus pushed the product range into a position of high technical expertise, specifically in the two-stroke field. With 16 FIM trial world titles since 1993 and four consecutive FIM Trial-E titles, the brand’s trial heritage and expertise are unquestioned.
In later years, GASGAS pushed into advanced enduro models but the firm ran into financial difficulties and merged with fellow Spanish brand, Ossa, in 2014. GASGAS was then given a further lifeline when it was acquired by the Torrot Group in 2015.
The fortunes of GASGAS didn't turn around until 2019 when Pierer Mobility AG - the owners of KTM and Husqvarna - stepped into buy a majority stake in the company. Since then, the GasGas range has massively expanded thanks to the platform sharing offered by KTM, providing new models in enduro, Supermoto and launching factory racing efforts in MXGP, Enduro, Moto3, Moto2 and MotoGP in 2023.
GASGAS trials bikes continue to be made in Girona, Spain, while the expanded range of MX, enduro and Supermoto models are built in Mattighofen, Austria.
