As mentioned I'm still in negotiations over pricing.
Currently, would need to retail bikes similar pricing to KTM to make worth my while.

Std version 250/300 just under R100k.
GP version 250/300 about R105k.
Also agree with Bob, prices not too bad.

Are these the only differences between the standard and gp versions:?
Rekluse clutch and clutch cover
- full FMF exhaust system
- X-Trig triple clamps and handlebar clamps
- Kayaba racing forks with DLC coating
- floating front brake disk
- Renthal 997 handlebar.

For 5k difference it’s a bargain, but for 95% of us probably not noticeable.

Agree with Paul, with all these extras the standard version won't sell. It'll need to be 15k cheaper than the gp version so you might as well only import the gp version

Better extras than you get on a 6 Days KTM IMO

If it is like KTM, you can’t only import the 6 days. Your allocation of 6 days bikes is about 10-15% of the normal ones you order

Spares back up is most important and a national dealer network. Rock Garden are good, but that’s not enough. Sometimes you just want to go to the store and buy a part. I have orange blood, but own a 2011 Six Days Gas Gas too. By far the smoothest 2T you will ever ride! But resale values are as poor as the other non-mainstream brands.

Keeping a watchfull eye on this. Somewhere in 2018 l will be getting a 2t again. Husky 1st option then maybe something excotic like a Sherco or maybe gas gas..

I worked out the figures & not viable for me to make that sort of investment for little return.

Also just been transferred for business so time will be very limited to focus on another venture.
I must give you a heads up, i personally think you have saved yourself a nightmare, and not the brand, just in general

I agree, i believe there is a lot of truth in the statement: "to make a small fortune in the motorsport industry you need to start with a huge fortune". I t could possibly be done as a sideline project - not your main income - but GG is a very small brand, means you don't need to carry many models of bike, but it also means you will be looking at a very small market.

It is very unfortunate though because i am only reading rave reviews about the new bike, even David Knight is having a hard time trying to fault it lol

Uncle Ian for once I must agree with you, I am a huge GasGas fan, I do believe the bikes are realy great, but it is a small niche brand that very few people will support, the average South African is a lemming that will blindly follow the masses.....changing set minds is a very costly thing to do.
