GasGas MC 85 19/16 2023
The GASGAS MC 85 is an unbeatable high-performance package designed for no-nonsense motocross fun! Built for youth riders that want to show what they've got on the track, it also provides the perfect stepping stone for those jumping up from small wheel dirt bikes. All youngsters will quickly get to grips with the MC 85. Complete with a strong motor, WP Suspension, and bodywork tailored to suit today's youth racers, it's without question a super-fun mini racer.
The mini motocrosser most riders will compete on before stepping up to one of our full-sized bikes, we wanted to make sure the MC 85 looks as good as it performs. This has never been more true than it is with the new 2023 colors and graphics. Giving growing riders the space they need to easily and comfortably move around, the bike's ergonomics help boost confidence. The striking red of the bike's panels, and the high grip seat cover, certainly help the MC 85 stand out from the pack.
As they charge harder, youngsters need to build their confidence, which is where the MC 85 frame comes into its own. With geometry that incorporates tailored flex, the frame moves in harmony with the suspension to effortlessly soak up bumps and ensure high-speed stability. Further assisting riders, the 'no dirt' footpegs prevent mud building up when riding through deep ruts, ensuring foot pegs return to their original position each and every time.
Make no mistake about it, the 85cc class is super competitive, which is why we've built a motor that delivers unrivalled performance using the latest 2-stroke technology. Featuring an innovative power valve to ensure a smooth spread of power across the full rev range, it's a system that can be tailored simply and effectively.
Holeshots require late braking, deep into the first turn. Ensuring riders can be late on the brakes and still take the line they need, the MC 85 features 240mm front and 220mm rear wave disks and floating brake calipers from Formula. Together they deliver powerful braking, consistent pad wear and give riders complete confidence.
Ensuring riders can keep in the sweet spot of the power at all times, the MC 85 features a lightweight 6-speed transmission. Additionally, and similar to the ‘no dirt’ foot peg design, a self-cleaning gear selector prevents the build-up of dirt for complete control in all conditions.
Updated for 2023, we've made the MC 85 clutch more reliable and robust, ensuring that when the chequered flag is in site squeezing every last drop of power out of the MC 85's motor is super easy to do. Allowing riders to keep the revs high, the bike features a super lightweight hydraulic system by Formula, which removes the need for adjustment and delivers a consistent biting point. Internally the MC 85 has a diaphragm spring clutch, which is characterised by its single diaphragm steel pressure plate instead of traditional coil springs.
