TXT RACING 280

Perfectly placed between our much-loved 250 and awesome 300cc trial bikes, the TXT RACING 280 offers the perfect blend of 2-stroke power, low weight, and maneuverability - precisely what improving riders looking for increased power and super-agile handling need. And as with all our trial bikes, it's fitted with high-quality parts like a BRAKTEC hydraulic clutch and brakes, as well as leading suspension to ensure reliability and, most of all, a whole lot of riding fun.

STYLE

BODYWORK

Restyled and red, red, red! What's really cool about our graphics is that they're embedded into the bodywork making them super durable. The fresh look is applied onto our slim, ergonomic plastics, which ensures unrestricted movements and allows riders to perform at their very best. As all trial riders hit the deck from time to time, all bodywork is made from a special blend of Polypropylene, which is super flexible and returns to its normal shape after impact, even if bent 180 degrees or more!

AIRBOX

There aren't many bikes that have an airbox with a such a clever design, but ours do! Not only does it house the top-quality Twin Air filter, but the overall structure also plays a vital role in allowing our trial bikes to be super slim. With easy access to the airbox, filter changes are made quick and easy with just one bolt safely securing the filter in place.

HANDLEBARS & GRIPS

Strong, lightweight, and tapered Neken handlebars are fitted with Renthal grips for the best in both strength and comfort. With the bars clamped into the handlebar clamps made of forged aluminum the entire front-end of the TXT Racing range is super stable with a familiar feel for a confidence boosting ride, time after time. This provides improved stiffness and better feedback to the rider plus we increased protection by adding a bar pad.

FUEL TANK

Redesigned for enhanced ergonomics while fitting seamlessly within the frame and bodywork, the compact 2.4-liter fuel tank is held in place with just one bolt, ensuring fast removal and quick re-installation.

HANDLING

FRAME

Strong, but with just the right amount of flex. That's how we build our trial frames, using tubular, 1.5mm 25CrMo4 chrome-moly steel for exceptional levels of rider feedback! Using advanced manufacturing processes, each one is crafted with laser cutting and robot welding. The end result is frames that are incredibly durable and ensure true trial performance. Weighing just 6kg, all frames are complete with a robust GASGAS-red powder coating. Lateral hangers made of forged aluminium connect the steering head zone with the large skid plate, that better protects the engine, lower frame rails, and linkage.

CNC MACHINED TRIPLE CLAMPS

Super cool and guaranteed to ensure front-end stability! Our silver anodized CNC machined triple clamps not only look the business, but they're incredibly lightweight and play a huge role in delivering precise handling.

TECH FORKS

Smooth and progressive for the very best handling, the 39mm low-friction front forks improve the bikes overall agility. To prevent unwanted bottoming, an adjustable spring and End Stroke adjustment can be found inside the left leg, while rebound can be fine-tuned on the right-side fork leg. Connecting the forks and ensuring positive rider feedback from the front wheel is a lightweight, 160-gram aluminum axle.

SHOCK ABSORBER

Making sure our TXT Racing line-up retains its best-in-class performance across all classes and displacements, a TECH shock is fitted. Delivering the highest levels of comfort and, most importantly, amazing rear wheel traction, with its adjustable rebound damping all riders are able to dial in the shock to suit their riding style and ability.

SWINGARM

Slim, lightweight, and super-strong! Cast from a single piece of aluminum, the swingarms fitted to the entire TXT RACING range are manufactured with proven rigidity and optimal flex, to soak up the biggest of rear wheel hits with ease.

FOOTPEGS

To improve comfort on the bike, the footpegs have been fully redesigned with an increased surface area closer to the frame. This unique design including a fixing bolt which is completely hidden in the frame allows riders to grip the bike more efficiently which enhances control considerably when compared to previous models. The same tried and tested special micro-casting process is retained for continued low weight and maximum grip.

MOTOR

MOTOR

Our mid-sized superstar! Built with the latest 2-stroke technology and designed to be powerful, light, clean burning, and compact, the TXT Racing 280 shares much of the proven architecture as found across the GASGAS trial bike line-up for guaranteed performance. 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.

CYLINDER HEAD

The exact same high-quality manufacturing as goes into each and every one of our trial bikes, the TXT RACING 280 cylinder head features cooling ducts that keep the motor's temperature down and a specifically calculated internal dome shape to keep power up!

CYLINDER & PISTON

The specially developed high-performance piston fitted inside the TXT RACING 280, together with the 76mm cylinder that features precisely positioned intake and exhaust ports, provide excellent torque and overall motor performance. Attached to the bike via aluminum brackets, the cylinders stays help reduce motor vibrations as well as further strengthening the compact steel frame.

CARBURETOR

Giving our 2-stroke motors all the fuel they need for a wide spread of smooth, strong power is the Keihin PWK 28mm carburetor.

TRANSMISSION

The lightest gearbox in any trial bike on the market and another patented GASGAS part! The 4/6 system allows riders to select from 6 gears when there are only 4 gears on the internal transmission shaft. Ensuring all TXT RACING bikes are technologically advanced, the gearbox reduces weight and allow for super compact crankcases.

CRANKSHAFT

Spinning endlessly to ensure all elements of the 2-stroke TXT RACING 280 motor combine to produce smooth, tractable power, the perfectly balanced crankshaft delivers a 60mm stroke, features a closed main bearing made by SKF, and uses a strong, lightweight connecting rod that uses two needle bearings to ease lubrication and increase durability. It also drives the water pump impeller.

CRANKCASE

All of the internal motor parts on the TXT RACING 280 are held within our super-strong, light-weight crankcases. Not only are they incredible durable, in housing all moving shafts close to the bike's center of gravity the design is both hugely compact and aids bike maneuverability and handling.

EXHAUST SYSTEM

A stainless-steel front pipe and rear silencer maximize the power and torque from our compact 2-stroke motors! Both components are low in weight for uncompromised handling yet high in strength for incredible durability. Our engineers also worked on a compact silencer endcap, which reduces the risk of potential damage. What we didn't change is the well-known and loved easy-access design, which allows super quick and simple silencer packing changes, as and when needed.

CLUTCH

Release all the torque and power you need with just one finger thanks to our super light Braktec hydraulic clutch! The reliable system is designed to ensure even wear for smooth operation and exceptional performance at all times. Consisting of three Kevlar friction plates, two steel plates, and a Belleville spring design, hours and hours of maintenance free riding is guaranteed. A durable clutch cover guarantees higher stiffness and a smoother profile lever offers a more comfortable feel.

PARTS

KICKSTARTER

A reworked kickstarter guarantees improved strength and reliability while the reworked shape of the starter finds an optimal final stop on the footpeg.

BRAKTEC BRAKES

For complete control, trial specific BRAKTEC brakes are fitted with the monoblock 4-piston caliper and 185mm NG waved front disc delivering unrivalled performance and accurate braking in all conditions. Together with a 2-piston caliper and a 150mm NG waved disc at the rear, the overall stopping power on the TXT RACING range is next level. A smoother profile front brake lever also offers a more comfortable feel.

FAN AND RADIATORS

The seriously clever integrated cooling system on our TXT Racing trial bikes is further improved with a redesigned fan that increases air flow and reduces sound. And with the radiator neatly tucked away between the aluminum engine mounts, the whole system is well protected from crash damage for continued 2-stroke performance.

WHEELS

They're built to last. Strength and reliability combine to create high performing wheels that will stand the test of time. With a CNC machined hub connected to the cool, black anodized aluminum rims from MORAD with lightweight spokes, this wheelset is capable of soaking up the hardest of hits. Up front, the aluminum axle is low in weight, high in strength, and plays a huge part in ensuring the front-end has a lightweight feeling.

TYRES

Michelin's super-light X11 tires connect all our TXT RACING bikes to the rocks, mud, and obstacles beneath them. The best in the business, they feature super-pliable knobbles, which together with low pressures offer exceptional grip.

IGNITION / ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

HIDRIA ignitions generate stronger power, which stabilizes idling and creates a cleaner response from the bottom end. Depending on your riding style and weather conditions, the handlebar mounted map switch allows for a choice of two ignition curves, which can be selected for tailored power in every section.
