Gas Gas release first mini – the MC65

Posted:

The all new MC65 has been released to the Australian market this week. The 65cc market is one of the largest sectors of the mini bike market and Gas Gas is very excited to be able to introduce such a competitive bike at it's first attempt. The R&D department at Gas Gas Moto in Spain claim to have produced an engine that develops much stronger mid range power and torque than similar models in the class. Gas Gas also claim slightly more top end power - developed at 1000rpm - less than it‰Ûªs closet competitor, giving a broader power curve across the entire rev range. Gas Gas has not held back using the best components to have a complete package, with AJP brakes front and rear, 35mm front forks, Sachs linkage rear shock, Michelin tyres, perimeter frame, and hydraulic clutch. The new mini's should be available through Gas Gas dealers as of today.
