MXA FIRST RIDE VIDEO: WE RIDE THE 2021 GASGAS MC 450F
This was the first ride on the 2021 Gas Gas MC 450F for the Motocross Action wrecking crew. Jody, Daryl and Josh came to Glen Helen Raceway with the GasGas crew to give our test MC450F its shakedown cruise. We spent the day testing suspension, working with the factory mechanics on settings. And getting the low-down on the new Gas Gas MC 450F, which features a Husqvarna swingarm, KTM subframe, special suspension valving tuned by WP specifically for GasGas, cast triple clamps, silver wheels, Maxxis tires, and a surprisingly decent seat cover. Check out all the details and learn what our assistant editor Josh Mosiman thought of the bike after day one. Glen Helen was rather smooth for the intro day, but we have big plans for this bike over the next couple days and weeks to really shake down the differences on it before we finish up MXA’s 2021 450 shootout. We’ll be putting a lot of seat time on the MC450F and comparing it to the KTM/Husqvarna models before we finish with the magazine bike test.
