It's our smallest 4-stroke but make no mistake, it's big on fun. It's also guaranteed to put a massive smile on your face! A high-revving racer with plenty of torque down low, the MC 250F caters for a huge range of riders. It doesn't matter if you're just starting out or chasing after championships titles, this bike is definitely for you! With a compact motor that revs all the way up to its 14,000rpm limit, it goes without saying... this thing absolutely rips!
2024 Bodywork: The redesigned bodywork, all in red, offers enhanced ergonomics and control. With larger contact surfaces and an improved rider triangle, it ensures a comfortable and confident ride. The rad shrouds are designed for better grip during acceleration, while the super grippy seat cover keeps riders securely positioned.
Handlebars: Neken handlebars, mounted on redesigned bar mounts for reduced twisting impact, provide a comfortable hold. Lock-on style ODI grips with a medium compound offer a cozy setup catering to various riders.
Airbox: Simplify maintenance and maximize riding time with the no-tools, user-friendly filter mounting system. The airbox features strategically positioned inlet ducts that direct air towards the Twin Air filter, enhancing horsepower.
Fuel Tank: The new fuel tank boasts a larger capacity while maintaining a sleek profile. An integrated fuel pump extends ride times by allowing the tank to be emptied further before refueling, making it ideal for longer sand track sessions.
Footpegs: Larger footpegs enhance control, featuring a spacious platform. Their repositioning further inward on the frame reduces the risk of catching on deep ruts and obstacles, improving overall ride experience.
Frame: A new generation demands a new frame. Building on the old frame's strengths, such as razor-sharp cornering and stable straight-line stability, our engineers have elevated it further. Enhanced anti-squat behavior boosts traction when exiting corners. Wall thickness adjustments throughout the frame improve rider feedback and energy absorption. A red powder coating and grippy guards not only prevent wear but also provide added boot traction.
Subframe: The all-aluminium subframe is lightweight and robust, harmonizing with the frame to centralize mass and significantly enhance the bike's exceptional handling.
Forged Triple Clamps: Revamped forged aluminum triple clamps with calculated flex, due to a revised steering stem, ensure optimal handling. These clamps align fork tubes perfectly, improving front wheel feedback and ensuring consistent handling across terrains. Adjustable bar mounts with an increased contact area reduce the risk of handlebar twisting in case of a crash. A glass bead blasted finish maintains their appearance.
WP Forks: Upgraded 48mm WP XACT forks grace all full-size GASGAS motocross models for 2024. External hand adjustments are easy, while internal revised settings complement the new frame. Encapsulated air spring and pressurized oil chamber maintain progressive fork action. A new hydrostop minimizes landing impacts and sustains forward momentum.
WP Shock: The new WP XACT rear shock is shorter and lighter yet retains 300mm travel. Technical enhancements include a new piston for initial comfort and improved stroke performance during intense acceleration. Like the WP forks, hand-adjustable settings provide quick and convenient tuning.
Swingarm: Cast from a single aluminum piece, the lighter and slightly stiffer new swingarm is a pinnacle of design. Enhanced durability of the chain slider and a rounded guide prevent ground contact during rough rides. A 22mm rear wheel axle complements refined chassis flex. Clear chain adjustment markings ensure swift and straightforward maintenance.
Enhanced 250F Motor: Refining the 250cc 4-stroke motor, engineers achieved a more compact and lighter design. A 2-degree backward tilt centralizes mass, enhancing handling, notably on the racetrack. The repositioning also lowers the sprocket by 3mm, aiding stability during acceleration.
Cylinder Head: The DOHC cylinder head is a powerhouse of features. Designed for peak performance, it boasts larger titanium exhaust valves, Diamond-like Carbon-coated finger followers, and improved sealing gasket. The bike's revving capacity up to 14,000rpm generates substantial power.
CYLINDER & PISTON: Vital for the vibrant MC 250F performance, the cylinder and forged bridged-box-type CP piston are expertly crafted from durable aluminum. The 81mm bore increase elevates compression to 14.5:1, translating to higher torque and peak power.
Transmission: Crafted by PANKL Racing Systems, the revamped transmission incorporates a redesigned shift shaft and low-friction-coated shifting fork for impeccable gear shifts, even under load. The five-speed gearbox offers seamless operation, aided by a dirt-preventing lever design.
Crankshaft: The MC 250F's durable crankshaft boasts 90-hour service intervals, optimal for performance and longevity. Positioned to centralize oscillating masses, it contributes to the bike's agile and lightweight feel.
Crankcase: Redesigned crankcases are thin, strong, and lightweight due to high-pressure casting. They provide a secure housing for internal components, ensuring centralized placement for peak performance.
Exhaust System: The exhaust system prioritizes optimal performance with minimal weight. The two-piece header pipe wraps neatly around the motor, leading to a compact aluminum silencer that adheres to FIM sound regulations.
DS Clutch: The MC 250F features a reliable Diaphragm Steel (DS) clutch, contributing to the compact engine design. A CNC-machined clutch basket with a single diaphragm steel pressure plate replaces traditional coil springs, ensuring longevity.
Enhanced Braking System: GASGAS motocross bikes feature top-notch Braktec calipers and controls, ensuring reliable stopping power. Equipped with GASGAS-specific design, the 260mm front and 220mm rear disks inspire confidence, encouraging riders to push boundaries and brake later, facilitated by the redesigned lever.
Hydraulic Clutch: Braktec's hydraulic clutch requires minimal adjustment and upkeep. Its standout feature is consistent performance, with automatic free-play adjustment at the revamped lever. This maintains a reliable clutch bite and operation, whether cold-starting or in the heat of competition.
Radiators: Robust aluminum radiators cool the engine efficiently, guided by a central tube within the frame. This innovative design minimizes hoses, ensuring steady coolant flow for optimal temperature management during demanding rides.
Wheels: GASGAS wheels are engineered to endure tough conditions. CNC-machined hubs, lightweight spokes, and sturdy EXCEL rims deliver unmatched strength, offering riders peace of mind when tackling rough tracks and heavy landings.
Tires: The Maxxis MaxxCross MX-ST tires remain from the previous generation for a reason. Renowned for versatile terrain performance and impressive durability, these tires minimize the need for frequent replacements, saving time and hassle.
Engine Management System (EMS): Utilizing cutting-edge Vitesco Technologies components, GASGAS employs a swift, compact EMS that includes a rollover sensor for ignition cutoff during significant crashes. This system also communicates crucial data to the hour meter.
Efficient Throttle Body: The MC 250f integrates a 44mm Keihin throttle body, optimizing fuel mixture flow into the combustion chamber. Its direct cable mounting guarantees immediate throttle response, enhancing rider control.
Customizable Power Delivery: The Map Select Switch empowers MC 250f riders to tailor power delivery. A simple button press on the handlebars toggles between two maps. For diverse track conditions, riders can opt for standard map 1 for hardpack surfaces or engage map 2 for sand or muddy tracks.
Convenient Starting: The introduction of an electric starter marks a significant convenience upgrade. With the start button also serving as the engine stop button, space on the handlebars is conserved. The Li-Ion battery not only trims weight but maintains easy electric starting while keeping overall bike weight minimal. A victory for practicality and performance!
