The new Gas Gas excursion trial bike with an electric starter system and seat

09/08/2017

A motorbike built for mountain and trial lovers. The new Gas Gas Contact model with electric start system will make your life easier. Enjoy nature at the highest comfort on your weekend getaways. Ride your bike through highly demanding trial ways and as far as you decide

The new Gas Gas Contact ES with electric start is the ideal bike for enthusiasts of excursions and trial. The secret of enjoying a great day out in the mountains often lies in those stress-free moments, with a versatile bike capable of offering different functions. This is the best way to get the most out of your weekend excursions.

Over time, wild spirits have a tendency to get mellower. Comfort becomes more important than full-on sporting aggression. And this is the philosophy behind the manufacture of the new Gas Gas Contact ES. This model, with electric start, makes riding easy with its progressive, flexible 250 cc engine; a single cylinder two-stroke, liquid cooled, with a new chromed steel exhaust collector and a new DellOrto 26 carburettor and Hydria ignition system with a single map.

Simplicity is the key to success and for this reason the new Gas Gas Contact ES counts with pre-adjusted front forks as standard and a rear shock absorber with pre-load and progressive link swing arm to smooth the way for riders aiming for just the right settings to get 100% out of their mountain rides.

A new 3.5 litre tank has been fitted, with a larger capacity than the trial bikes, also a padded seat as standard, hiding a new battery underneath, are just some of the new features on this model showing great stability and traction thanks in part due to a slight increase in weight but also because of the new Mitas tyres.

New components add to the great quality: New Braktec clutch and brake pistons, NG brake discs (front and back) and switchgear (including lights, starter, indicators and OBD). They are going to make the new Gas Gas Contact ES (Electric Start) our very best friend to share great times together with when we are out and about.
