GasGas now has its own version of the Factory Edition. Its called the “Race Team Edition” but the concept is similar to that of the KTM 450SX-F Factory Edition and the Husqvarna Rockstar Edition, with a slew of upgrades and a look that is a tribute to Justin Barcia’s factory bike. At the factory level, Barcia’s bike is based on the same platform he used last year, whereas the KTM and Husqvarna factory bikes are based on recently announced models with a different frame. Likewise, the GasGas Race Team Edition has the same frame as last year’s bike. It does, however, have upgraded parts like the Akrapovic exhaust and Hinson clutch cover that the KTM and Husky guys won’t get. The official press release is below.

We’ve unlocked a little more power from the compact MC 450F motor by adding a lightweight Akrapovič Slip-On Line exhaust system, giving significantly improved torque and an overall performance boost. Quick and easy changes in the power delivery can be made thanks to a handlebar mounted Map Select Switch.
For improved handling, the MC 450F Troy Lee Designs motocross bike features firmer WP XACT suspension settings, with the forks held in place by adjustable, red anodized Factory Racing Triple Clamps. For additional comfort, we’ve fitted softer ODI Lock-On grips and installed a TLD Factory Racing seat cover, to keep you firmly in place while getting on the gas.
The MC 450F Troy Lee Designs machine comes fitted with our Factory Wheels, in black. Rock solid and super-cool looking, they’re fitted with Dunlop’s Geomax MX33 tires. We’ve also bolted a Semi-floating Front Disc to the front wheel to improve braking performance with a Front Brake Disc guard keeping the disc safe and out of harm’s way.
Finally, finishing the MC 450F Troy Lee Designs off in style is an extended list of parts from our Technical Accessories range. From front to back, there’s a Factory Start Device, Neken handlebars, a Composite Skid Plate, Hinson Clutch Cover, a red Frame Protection Kit, a black Rear Sprocket, and a gold chain. Plus, to keep on top of service intervals, we’ve installed an Hour Meter, so you’ll never lose track of just how many hours you’ve spent on this awesome bike.
