Gas Gas is a Spanish motorcycle manufacturer, specialising in off-road
motorbikes. Gas Gas are best known for their extremely popular trials bikes,
although they also make successful enduro and quad bikes. Gas Gas emerged from
the financial demise of Bultaco when two agents, Narcis Casas and Josep
Piebernat found themselves with a shop but no product to sell. So they embarked
on a program to manufacture trials bikes for sale in their shop. Gas Gas
motorcycles was founded in 1974.
It had a start up capitol of 100,000 Spanish Pesetas.
The name Gas Gas literally means "to gas it". (To accelerate, give it the gas,
turn the throttle - to go faster.). The slogan "Gas Gas = Fast Fast" was used by
the US importer, Gas Gas North America, from 1999-2002 to try and help people
understand the unique name.
