2024 GasGas MC 450F and 250F Factory Editions First Look

2024 GasGas MC 450F Factory Edition: Justin Barcia

The 2024 GasGas MC 450F and 250F Factory Editions are complete departures from the standard models. While the standard 2024 GasGas MC 450F and 250F retain the older KTM chassis, the two factory additions are fully up to 2024 KTM spec. As a reminder to the uninitiated, GasGas is owned by Pierer Mobility AG, which also owns KTM and Husqvarna.

  1. Smartphone connectivity comes to GasGas. For the first time, GasGas MXers can pair to a smartphone thanks to the inclusion of the Connectivity Unit Offroad. The GASGAS+ app makes it easier to set up the bike. Put your parameters into the Engine and Suspension categories in the app, and it will suggest settings for the suspension and the best tuning for the engine—the engine map selection switch is standard. The Rider category keeps track of your lap times and helps you analyze the performance of the bike and rider during each race or practice session. A new front fender houses the GPS unit that the GASGAS+ app relies on.

  1. The suspension on the Factory Editions is updated. The 450 and 250 continue to run WP suspension, as Pierer Mobility also owns WP. However, the Xact air fork gets new settings to match the new frame, and the rear linkage gets improved seals and a new linkage bolt. The fork is equipped with a WP Factory start device.
