Model Description


MC 65 2024

Where pure motocross riding really starts! For 2024, the MC 65 this has received a whole host of exciting updates including a new motor, bodywork, clutch, exhaust, frame, and transmission, all helping take the on-track experience to a whole new level. This little red racer is a fully fledged, 6-speed dirt bike designed to give all future superstars a competitive edge. Retaining a few race-tested components such as the WP suspension, Maxxis tires, and Twin Air filter, the MC 65 only needs numbers sticking on to take it racing. It really is that good.
 
BODYWORK
As you can see, the MC 65 certainly looks the business with it’s all new bodywork! All red to really stand out from the crowd, it’s not only vibrant, but with larger contact areas for riders to grip the bike with their legs, the new model let’s riders do their thing with greater control. There’s a flatter seat too which makes movement on the bike so much easier, especially for shorter riders.

ADJUSTABLE ERGONOMICS
One really cool thing about the MC 65 is that it can be adjusted in size to suit so many riders. The bodywork and subframe can be fitted in either a high or low position, as can the WP shock, while the handlebars can be installed in no fewer than four different ways! 

HANDLEBAR AND GRIPS
New handlebars help kids ride with confidence and develop a perfect technique. They’re a little taller, feature a much more modern bend, and are complete with slimmer profile ODI grips. This new set-up will benefit all young riders as it reduces vibration, which lessens fatigue and makes the MC 65 so much more stable at speed.

SUBFRAME
Light, strong, durable. What else can we say about the new subframe? Oh yeah, it’s now made using a combination of polyamide glass fiber and steel to create a hybrid construction that’s built to last. It’s also height adjustable which means that riders can have their bike set-up based on their height or preference.

FRAME
The new frame on the MC 65 is so new the only thing that really remains the same is the material used to make it – chromium molybdenum steel! For the new model, GASGAS engineers worked on refining the frame to unlock improved handling characteristics. They achieved this by fine-tuning both the flex and geometry and from what the kids who helped develop this bike have said, the new MC 65 turns sharper with no loss of straight-line stability.

WP FORKS
Giving youngsters the performance they need, especially as they begin to pick up their speed, the WP XACT forks fitted to the MC 65 offer exceptional damping. With no less than 215mm of travel, the 35mm forks are more than capable of soaking up the biggest bumps to ensure the smoothest rides. And thanks to the air spring, it couldn’t be easier to set the pressure for the perfect set-up.

WP SHOCK
Our MC 65 may well be a little 2-stroke racer, but it’s definitely big on featuring quality components such as the WP shock! Redesigned for 2024 to work with the new frame, the new WP XACT shock is mounted in a very different way, which required an updated spring to be fitted to balance things out again. Now much more planted and stable, the MC 65 is an absolute dream to ride for any young racer. The WP shock is fully adjustable, too. We’re talking preload, rebound, and high and low speed compression. And it’s easy to refine the settings as time goes on, too.

SWINGARM
The MC 65 boasts big-bike tech with its die-cast aluminum swingarm. An improved casting process sheds some weight for 2024 and to match the new frame’s flex characteristics, there’s a 14mm rear wheel axle. And when the going gets tough, the new chain guide and slider have a rounder profile to help the bike glide through the deepest of ruts.

MOTOR
For 2024, our engineers focused on maximizing the performance from the MC 65 motor without sacrificing any reliability. And they’ve nailed it! Built with the latest in 2-stroke technology, it’s the Pressure Controlled Exhaust Valve that really helps this little bike sing! Well, that, and the close ratio 6-speed transmission, machined crankcases, hydraulic clutch, new ignition, BRISK spark plug, and revised jetting settings, which combine to make the MC 65 absolutely rip.

CYLINDER
Making power! The lightweight aluminum cylinder features a Pressure Controlled Exhaust Valve (PCEV) that delivers maximum performance throughout the entire rev-range. So, it goes without saying that youngsters racing the MC 65 will enjoy a clear advantage over their competition thanks to this cutting edge, 2-stroke technology.

AIRBOX AND FILTER
We get it. Changing air filters is boring (although it beats cleaning them!), so we’ve redesigned the airbox to make filter changes easier, faster, and safer by introducing a failproof snap-lock mounting design. There’s also a new Twin Air filter with a larger surface area inside the airbox, which increases airflow into the motor. And you know what more air means – more power!

EXHAUST
Unlocking more power from the 65cc motor is an all-new exhaust system. Built in the same way as our bigger 2-strokes, the welding seams on the inside are now removed for improved performance. This gives a noticeable boost to power throughout the rev-range and there’s also a much better seal between the front pipe and silencer to keep the gases flowing in the right direction.

TRANSMISSION
An improved manufacturing process and stronger steel combines to create a much more durable transmission for 2024. What hasn’t changed, though, are the proven gear ratios which are retained to help keep the MC 65 in the sweet spot of the power at all times.

CARBURETOR
With an all-new motor, exhaust, and intake, a few changes inside the 24mm Mikuni carburetor were essential. These revisions retain the high-revving performance of the MC 65, as well as making sure that reliability is never in question. 

DS CLUTCH
Built to last! The new DS clutch inside the MC 65 brings even more big-bike tech to this little red racer. For unrivalled durability, the Diaphragm Spring clutch is housed inside a new steel basket and as the springs are constantly compensating for any wear, performance never falters. And with a hydraulic clutch system, the lever is light to pull in and guarantees consistent action at all times.

BRAKES
Make no mistake, the MC 65 is fast! So, it goes without saying that it’s fitted with high performance brakes. Floating calipers from Formula, together with a 198mm waved disk up front and a 180mm waved disk at the rear, allow riders to stay on the gas longer, brake later, and never miss their line through the turns. 

WHEELS AND TIRES
Wrapped with MAXXIS MAXXCROSS-MX-ST tires for maximum grip on the widest range of surfaces, the MC 65 rolls on lightweight and strong wheels with black anodized rims creating a super cool look.

TRIPLE CLAMPS
Making sure the MC 65 is stable at speed and capable of carving tight lines through the turns are the forged triple clamps. Aligning the WP forks perfectly for unrestricted suspension performance, the triple clamps retain the same flex characteristics as before with the only change for 2024 being the new mounting position for the front number plate.

RADIATORS
Two radiators, just like our full-size dirt bikes, keep the MC 65 running cool at all times. Well protected from any potential damage, the radiators are now connected using a simplified routing of the hoses, which allows coolant to flow in a much more efficient way to maximize both performance, and reliability.
