GASGAS Unveils Its First-Ever Road-Legal Motorcycles with the ES 700 & SM 700

First established in 1985, GASGAS is a Spanish motorcycle manufacturer that focuses exclusively on producing off-road bikes. In 2019, KTM AG announced that it had purchased a majority stake in the company and would be entering a joint venture with GASGAS to develop a handful of new offerings including road-going models and a fully-electric motorcycle lineup. And roughly three years after the acquisition, we’re now being treated to the first fruits of this partnership with GASGAS’ first-ever street-legal motorcycles — the ES 700 and SM 700.

Offered in enduro (ES) or supermoto (SM) versions, GASGAS’ new road-goers are based on KTM’s legendary 690 platform – the same engine and Chrome-moly tubular spaceframe used for the KTM 690 SMC R and the Husqvarna 701 Supermoto. As such both bikes are kicked along by a counter-balancer-equipped, liquid-cooled 692.7cc single that makes 74hp and 52.4ft-lbs of torque. The dual-sport variant comes with an off-road-ready 21” front spoked wheel and an 18” rear item that are shod in Continental TKC 80 rubber, while the supermoto-spec wears a pair of 18” cast wheels front and back that come wrapped in super-sticky ContiAttack SM EVO tires. Other highlights include a cast swing-arm, WP XPLOR suspension fore and aft, and a self-supporting polyamide subframe that houses a 13.5-liter tank.

Both the ES 700 and the SM 700 also come loaded with modern tech in the form of a bi-directional quick-shifter, a host of electronic rider aides, and a suite of different ride modes and Bosche 9.1 cornering ABS — the latter two of which include a dedicated supermoto mode for the SM-spec and an off-road mode for the ES version. GASGAS will also be offering a wide range of optional upgrades and accessories for both models, as well as a line of matching riding gear.

The 2023 GASGAS ES 700 Enduro and SM 700 SuperMoto motorcycles are available now, with pricing set at €10,749 (~$11,350) for both models. Unfortunately, the ES 700 and SM 700 will — at least initially — not be offered on American shores, though with the engine already homologated for the U.S. market, this will hopefully change.

Purchase: $11,350
