STYLE

STYLE

BODYWORK

Restyled and red, red, red! What's really cool about our new graphics is that they're embedded into the bodywork making them super durable. The fresh look is applied onto our slim, ergonomic plastics, which ensures unrestricted movements and allows riders to perform at their very best. As all trial riders hit the deck from time to time, all bodywork is made from a special blend of Polypropylene, which is super flexible and returns to its normal shape after impact, even if bent 180 degrees or more! 

AIRBOX

There aren't many bikes that have an airbox with a such a clever design, but ours do! Not only does it house the top-quality Twin Air filter, but the overall structure also plays a vital role in allowing our trial bikes to be super slim. With easy access to the airbox, filter changes are made quick and easy with just one bolt safely securing the filter in place. 

HANDLEBARS & GRIPS

Strong, lightweight, and tapered Neken handlebars are fitted with Renthal grips for the best in both strength and comfort. With the bars mounted in the new forged aluminium handlebar clamps, the entire front-end is super stable and confidence inspiring. The whole front end set-up refines the rigidity and feedback from the front wheel while a new bar pad provides a little extra protection.

FUEL TANK

Redesigned for enhanced ergonomics while fitting seamlessly within the frame and bodywork, the compact 2.4-liter fuel tank is held in place with just one bolt, ensuring fast removal and quick re-installation.

HANDLING

HANDLING

FRAME

Strong, but with just the right amount of flex. That's how we build our trial frames, using tubular, 1.5mm 25CrMo4 chrome-moly steel for exceptional levels of rider feedback! Using advanced manufacturing processes, each one is crafted with laser cutting and robot welding. The end result is frames that are incredibly durable and ensure true trial performance. Weighing just 6kg, all frames are complete with a robust GASGAS-red powder coating. Lateral hangers made of forged aluminium connect the steering head zone while a new, larger skid plate provides better protection for the engine, lower frame rails, and linkage.

CNC MACHINED TRIPLE CLAMPS

Super cool and guaranteed to ensure front-end stability! Our silver anodized CNC machined triple clamps not only look the business, but they're incredibly lightweight and play a huge role in delivering precise handling. 

TECH FORKS

Smooth and progressive for the very best handling, the 39mm low-friction front forks are 7.5mm shorter for 2023, to improve the bike's overall agility. To prevent unwanted bottoming, an adjustable spring and End Stroke adjustment can be found inside the left leg, while rebound can be fine-tuned on the right-side fork leg. Connecting the forks and ensuring positive rider feedback from the front wheel is a lightweight, 160-gram aluminum axle. 

SHOCK ABSORBER

Making sure our TXT RACING line-up retains its best-in-class performance across all classes and displacements, a new TECH shock is fitted for 2023 for the highest levels of comfort and, most importantly, delivering rear wheel traction! With easily adjustable rebound damping, everyone can dial in the shock to suit their riding style and ability.

SWINGARM

Slim, lightweight, and super-strong! Cast from a single piece of aluminum, the swingarms fitted to the entire TXT RACING range are manufactured with proven rigidity and optimal flex, to soak up the biggest of rear wheel hits with ease. 

FOOT PEGS

To improve comfort on the bike, the foot pegs have been fully redesigned with an increased surface area closer to the frame. This unique design includes a new fixing bolt hidden inside the frame and allows riders to grip the bike more effectively for considerably enhanced control when compared to previous models. The same tried and tested special micro-casting process is retained for continued low weight and maximum grip.

MOTOR

MOTOR

MOTOR

Powerful, light, and compact. The TXT RACING 300 motor is without doubt the most competitive in its class. Our engineers have never stopped developing the 300cc 2-stroke motor, squeezing out more and more user-friendly performance while ensuring maintenance costs remain low. Sharing much of the same architecture as the smaller capacity GASGAS trial bikes, the motor not only gives riders tons of smooth power, but the overall design also aids handling. 

CYLINDER HEAD

Ensuring the motor fitted inside the TXT RACING 300 fires to produce the strongest possible power, the cylinder head features a specific internal profile that ensures a clean burn of the fuel/air mixture for a quick and precise throttle action.

CYLINDER & PISTON

Big power, excellent torque and class-leading performance comes from a specially developed 79mm piston on our TXT RACING 300. And a cylinder that has specifically designed intake and exhaust ports to ensure the perfect flow of air/fuel mixture.

CARBURETOR

Giving our 2-stroke motors all the fuel they need for a wide spread of smooth, strong power is the Keihin PWK 28mm carburetor. 

TRANSMISSION

The lightest gearbox in any trial bike on the market and another patented GASGAS part! The 4/6 system allows riders to select from 6 gears when there are only 4 gears on the internal transmission shaft. Ensuring all TXT RACING bikes are technologically advanced, the gearbox reduces weight and allow for super compact crankcases.  

CRANKSHAFT

We work hard to ensure the crankshaft on the TXT RACING 300 runs as freely as possible, like we do on all of our trial bikes. Ideally balanced for incredibly smooth, vibration free motor performance, it deliver the 60mm stroke via a high-performance aluminum connecting rod with a closed main bearing by SKF for peace of mind and long-lasting durability.

CRANKCASE

The TXT RACING 300 delivers serious performance from an ultra-compact motor. Something only possible because of the super-small crankcases. Manufactured using a high-pressure die-cast process, they're lightweight while also being incredibly strong. They also hold all internal motor parts close to the bike's center of gravity for awesome handling.

EXHAUST SYSTEM

A redesigned front pipe and an all-new rear silencer maximizes the power and torque from our compact 2-stroke motors! Both components are low in weight for uncompromised handling yet high in strength for incredible durability. Our engineers also worked on a new style silencer endcap which reduces the risk of potential crash damage. One thing we didn't change is the well-known and loved easy-access design on the silencer which allows super quick and easy packing changes as and when they're required. 

CLUTCH

Release all the torque and power you need with just one finger thanks to our super light BRAKTEC hydraulic clutch! Reliable and designed to ensure even wear, it delivers smooth operation and exceptional performance at all times. Consisting of three Kevlar friction plates, two steel plates, and a Belleville spring design, hours and hours of maintenance free riding is guaranteed. A stronger clutch cover prevents damage from rocks and boot wear while a smoother profile lever provides a more comfortable feel.

KICKSTARTER

Redesigned to be stronger and more efficient, the new kickstarter fires the bike into the life easily with an assertive kick. Adding further durability, the new footpeg has a beefed up section where the kickstart meets it for improved longevity.

BRAKTEC BRAKES

For complete control, trial specific BRAKTEC brakes are fitted with the monoblock 4-piston caliper and 185mm NG waved front disc delivering unrivalled performance and accurate braking in all conditions. Together with a 2-piston caliper and a 150mm NG waved disc at the rear, the overall stopping power on the TXT RACING range is next level. A smoother profile front brake lever also offers a more comfortable feel. 

FAN AND RADIATORS

The seriously clever integrated cooling system on our TXT Racing trial bikes is further improved for 2023 with a redesigned fan that increases air flow and reduces sound. And with the radiator neatly tucked away between the new aluminum engine mounts, the whole system is well protected from crash damage for continued 2-stroke performance. 

WHEELS

They're built to last. Strength and reliability combine to create high performing wheels that will stand the test of time. With a CNC machined hub connected to the cool, black anodized aluminum rims from MORAD with lightweight spokes, this wheelset is capable of soaking up the hardest of hits. Up front, the aluminum axle is low in weight, high in strength, and plays a huge part in ensuring the front-end has a lightweight feeling. 

TYRES

Michelin's super-light X11 tires connect all our TXT RACING bikes to the rocks, mud, and obstacles beneath them. The best in the business, they feature super-pliable knobbles, which together with low pressures offer exceptional grip. 

IGNITION/ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

New HIDRIA ignitions generate stronger power, which stabilizes idling and creates a cleaner response from the bottom end. Depending on your riding style and weather conditions, the handlebar mounted map switch allows for a choice of two ignition curves, which can be selected for tailored power in every section.
