FEATURES & BENEFITS
Sleek red bodywork allows for unrestricted movement on the MC 350F for total control when you're getting on the gas or hitting the brakes hard. Complete with a high grip, all-red seat cover, you'll take to the track in complete control.
Less time working on bikes means more time riding bikes, which is exactly why you'll love the straightforward, no tools needed filter mounting system on all GASGAS motocross bikes. Allowing quick and easy filter changes, the airbox is designed with precisely positioned inlet ducts that ensure maximum airflow and protection of the Twin Air filter.
HANDLE BARS, GRIPS & THROTTLE ASSEMBLY
Hold on, it's important! We fit all GASGAS motocross bikes with quality Neken tapered handlebars, guaranteeing comfort and control thanks to optimal pressure points on the rider's hands. The left side ODI grip doesn't require gluing, while on the right, the vulcanized grip features an innovative integrated throttle mechanism. With easy to adjust free-play, by changing a cam, the progression of the throttle can also be altered.
We like to keep our fuel tanks simple and robust, that's why we opted for a threaded filler cap that provides a tight and reliable seal and positioned the external fuel line to make sure it's less exposed and susceptible to damage. The black 7-liter lightweight polythene fuel tanks feature direct internal line routing from the pump to the flange, for optimal fuel flow.
Features & Benefits
The technology in our frames ensures riders enjoy playful handling and an energetic feeling on any motocross tracks. Underneath the red powder coating there's a lightweight chromium molybdenum steel, hydro-formed, laser-cut and robot-welded chassis that's built to perform. Designed to be rigid where it needs to be rigid and to flex where flex is needed, it provides exceptional rider feedback, energy absorption, and straight-line stability.
With a short and compact profile all GASGAS motocross subframes are made from lightweight aluminum. The profile helps centralize mass while also keeping weight down.
FORGED TRIPLE CLAMPS
Featuring a 4-way handlebar adjustment that allows riders to set-up the front-end of their bikes just the way they like it, the forged, 22mm offset triple clamps work in harmony with our WP front forks to help deliver precise handling and stability.
All GASGAS motocross models are equipped with advanced, super-lightweight 48mm WP XACT upside-down forks that are easily adjustable. Delivering progressive and consistent damping no matter how rough the track, they feature a capsulated air spring and pressurized oil chamber together with other internal damping wizardry. The end result is outstanding rider comfort and front-end confidence.
Features & Benefits
Big power and monstrous amounts of torque from a compact SOHC motor that weighs just 27kg, including the electric starter! The MC 450F rips but thanks to centralization being key to the motor's design, the 62 hp power unit is positioned more centrally within the frame, ensuring a positive effect on the bike's overall handling.
The MC 450F cylinder head is compact, lightweight and benefits from a short profile that locates the single camshaft as close to the center of gravity as possible. Why? To significantly improve the handling. With lightweight 40mm intake and 33mm exhaust valves activated by rocker arms that are coated in a low-friction Diamond Like Carbon (DLC), the SOHC cylinder head provides both torque and precise throttle response.
CYLINDER & PISTON
Essential to the MC 450F producing strong, smooth power is the lightweight aluminum cylinder and CP bridged-box-type piston. Combined they ensure the motor pumps out an impressive 62hp while also ensuring reduced vibrations.
Transferring power to the rear wheel, the 5-speed transmission is built tough and features motocross specific ratios. Allowing riders to easily hook the next gear and use the bike's serious torque, the shifting fork features a low-friction coating to ensure silky smooth gear changes each and every time.
Features & Benefits
Fast is fun but slowing down is essential, which is why all GASGAS motocross bikes are fitted with Brembo calipers and controls. With 260mm front and 220mm rear disks, braking is easy, inspiring riders to push harder and ride faster.
BREMBO HYDRAULIC CLUTCH
No need for adjustment and a near maintenance-free operation, but the best thing about the Brembo hydraulic clutch is that it delivers a perfectly smooth action time and time again. With lever free-play automatically adjusted, the biting point and function of the clutch remain constant no matter if it's hot or cold.
INTEGRATED COOLING SYSTEM AND RADIATORS
Keeping our bikes slim means better handling, which is why the GASGAS motocross range features cooling systems that are integrated into the frames. Also allowing for improved cooling due to eliminating the need for additional hoses, together with the high-strength, lightweight radiators the complete system ensures, well, our bike stays super cool no matter how tough the conditions!
Built to take a beating, our wheels are ready to play rough. No matter how heavy the landing or how rough the track, the silver, high-strength rims, CNC machined hubs, and lightweight spokes deliver maximum strength for complete peace of mind.
Features & Benefits
SYSTEM - EMS
Super small but the best there is when it comes to processing engine data. Used to control all parameters linked to the fuel-injections system, the Keihin EMS unit also features a gear sensor that allows a tailored power delivery for each gear.
44 MM THROTTLE BODY
The MC 450F uses a 44mm Keihin throttle body with an injector positioned to ensure the most efficient flow of fuel mixture into the combustion chamber. But what's most important to all riders is the fact that the direct cable mounting system ensures an immediate throttle response.
ELECTRIC START AND LI-ION BATTERY
No need to kick, kick, kick! All GASGAS 4-strokes motocross bikes are fitted with an electric starter as standard. Saving time at the start of a day when a motor's cold, or near the end of a race when the motor's hot, with the simple press of a button the MC 350F fires into life. Using a lightweight Li-Ion 2.0 Ah battery together with a robust starter motor from Mitsuba and a reliable starter drive guarantees reliable starting. Always.
