Two new GASGAS prototypes spotted near the KTM factory in Mattighofen

Two GASGAS prototypes They have become the target of the cameras of journalists who, on a regular basis, wait patiently in the vicinity of the KTM facilities in Mattighofen. As it seems, and this is attested by the colleagues at Motorrad Online, we could be facing the upcoming ES 800 and SM 800.

Currently, GASGAS has among its ranks the GASGAS ES and SM 700, the brand's first trail and supermotard, launched on the market in April 2022 and equipped with the large-caliber 692 cc single-cylinder engine of KTM origin. However, these GASGAS prototypes that we show you today, could become the brand's first models equipped with a twin-cylinder engine.

Specifically, the engine currently fitted to the KTM 790 models. We are talking about a parallel twin cylinder 790cc capable of offering us a power of 95 HP at 8,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 88 Nm at 6,500 revolutions. A mechanism equipped with three driving modes: Street, Offroad, Rain and a good technological compendium supporting its dynamic qualities.

GASGAS prototypes in their final design phase

On the other hand, one of the most striking aspects of these GASGAS prototypes They are the features that define its front. They remind us de facto of the 800 MT-X from CFMoto, KTM's Asian sister, which we already showed you in the early stages of this year in the form of images presented by the brand itself in the patent registry.

In any case, we are looking at two models that would cover the SM and enduro needs of GASGAS, but going up a level with respect to the 700 versions that are currently marketed. A rare combination of design that successfully employs CFMoto styling cues and the technique used by KTM's 790 frames.

In short, we are facing the most likely evolution of the GASGAS range with two new models that could be launched on the market imminently. The finishes that these GASGAS prototypes They give an idea of ​​how advanced the project is. Now we have to wonder if we could find two variants of both in the form of new frames signed by KTM.
