The 2022 GasGas TXT trial lineup—Racing and high-end GP two-stroke trials bikes—is now public. The motorcycles are largely unchanged from last year, with the motors available in three displacements—300, 280, and 250. GasGas notes that the new TXTs are now Euro-5 compliant, thanks to the trials bikes being “further refined.” We expect that means minor changes to the ignition and fueling, as GasGas still claims “smooth, controllable power.”Those hoping for the KTM-owned brand to institute changes such as fuel-injection, oil injection, and WP suspension will have to wait at least another year. All TXTs continue to have Tech forks, while the GP retains the Reiger shock, with the Racing going with an Öhlins shock. The GP upgrades include an S3 cylinder head, titanium exhaust system, higher-spec Golden Tech fork, carbon fiber airbox, S3 footpegs, Renthal handlebar, red-anodized CNC-machined triple clamps, and CTG factory graphics.
