GAS GAS ARE GO!

Gas Gas UK has received their first consignment of new machines following the recent purchase by Torrot, the Spanish electric motorcycle manufacturer of the Salt, Gerona made motorcycle brand.

GGUK’s Kevin ‘Factory Kev’ Hipwell is seen here ‘unloading’ the first batch of crated machines at their Derbyshire headquarters.

GGUK has continued trading successfully as UK distributors of spare parts for the Spanish marque which has a very strong brand loyalty.

The return to market is welcome news for the UK trials buying public.

Torrot became the main and eventual successful bidder for the stricken Gas Gas concern after several bids collapsed early in 2016.

The arrival of machines also co-incides with the announcement that Gas Gas UK will again be represented at the annual Scottish Six Days Trial (Monday 2nd – Saturday 7th May 2016) at Fort William where the usual support will be available to private Gas Gas owners as in previous years.
