Our TXT GP 280 offers the perfect blend of 2-stroke power, low weight and easy maneuverability – the ideal steppingstone for improving riders looking for increased power and super-agile handling. Sitting perfectly between our much-loved 250cc and awesome 300cc trial bikes, the TXT GP 280 is fitted with high-quality parts, Braktec hydraulic clutch and brakes, as well as leading suspension. It’s a bike that ensures smooth, clean power, reliability and a whole lot of riding fun!
Minimalist. Lightweight. Durable. We love our bikes’ distinctive, modern and super-slim look. The bodywork of all GASGAS TXT GP trial bikes ensures riders feel comfortable and confident during every ride. And because no rider goes more than a few weekends without a fall, we use Polypropylene when injection molding our plastics, which doesn’t mark when bent more than 90 degrees. All front mudguards feature an integrated fork brace.
CARBON FIBER AIRBOX
A piece of art and an industrial design masterpiece! The carbon fiber airbox fitted to the TXT GP line-up ensures maximum airflow and the best filter protection. Featuring a clever, patented design, the airbox is a structural part of each bike yet feature no additional sub-assemblies. The Twin Air filter is easily accessed and can be removed by taking out just one bolt.
Just like the TXT RACING models, we build our TXT GP frames to be super strong, using tubular, 1.5mm 25CrMo4 chrome-moly steel! They ensure precise rider feedback, deliver highly effective energy absorption as well as long-lasting durability, thanks to the fact they’re robot cut and laser welded. Weighing just 6kg, all frames ensure precision and toughness and are finished with a robust red powder coating and a unique special edition plate with serial number.
Built to be powerful, light, clean burning, and compact, the single cylinder, liquid cooled 280cc engine (272.2cc) features the latest 2-stroke technology. Sharing much of its architecture with other TXT RACING and GP bikes, thanks to years of continued development the cylinder features thermodynamic intake and exhaust ports, which contribute massively to making the engine the most competitive in its class. The light and compact design ensures the TXT GP 280 is super agile and a master at changing direction.
Complete braking confidence with a sensitive and progressive feel. That’s what the Braktec braking systems fitted to all TXT GP models ensures. The front 4-piston caliper features a 185mm front waved disc by NG while the rear 2-piston caliper features a 150mm NG FIM disc. Both deliver impressive stopping power. The rear brake system features patented magnetic brake pads, which stay open when the wheel is removed. Pretty neat, right!
