Model Description

A playful single-cylinder, dual-sport performer, the ES 700 is a
big-bore bike that’s perfect for mixed surface riding. Branching out
into the street bike sector and creating the ES 700 GASGAS, we utilized
in-house expertise, fresh thinking, and cutting-edge technology to
produce a bike that delivers a distinct and playful riding experience.
All the power from the single-cylinder, 74hp, 692.7cc motor is delivered
through a super-cool ride-by-wire throttle system, which guarantees a
crisp throttle response and gives a highly accurate delivery of the
motor’s linear power. The bike is also loaded with the latest in
electronic rider aids, which allows you to fine-tune the ES 700 to be
just the way you like it. And with a state-of-the-art ABS system, and
Brembo brakes, you’ll always be in total control. And, if that isn’t
enough, the ES 700 boasts incredibly long service intervals of 10,000
kilometers, so you can rack up some serious distance in between trips to
your local dealer.

The ES 700 features unique ergonomics that ensure maximum enjoyment and a
very special riding experience. Turning every road and offroad track
into a series of ongoing playgrounds, the lively handling and offroad
inspired centered riding position inspires confidence and inject fun
into every ride. Loaded with personality, each model stands loud and
proud with its bold red look.

So, so red! No one will miss you coming on the ES 700 thanks to the vibrant red body work and bold graphics. Inspired by our awesome off-road range, as well as being ergonomically top-notch, all panels wrap neatly around the frame and motor to improve the connection between rider and bike for total control in all situations.

We’ve got you and your bike covered. Our comprehensive range of specially developed, tested, and proven GASGAS Technical Accessories further enhance the capabilities of the ES 700. With premium quality components improving style, performance, and reliability, you can personalize your bike just the way you like it!

Offroad fun requires specialist offroad clothing and protection! Designed to look great, keep you safe, and ensure maximum mobility, GASGAS Offroad Gear allows riders to face whatever comes their way!

Serious, all-in trail and street riding, that’s what the GASGAS ES 700
is built for. And the exact reason both bikes have exceptional handling,
which allows riders of all ability levels to feel safe, secure, and
super-confident, no matter where they’re riding. From the steel trellis
frames that ensure the perfect mix of flex and rigidity, to our
super-strong, great looking, die-cast swingarms, and not forgetting the
13.5-liter fuel tanks that keeps weight low, our new street bikes
deliver great handling. Finished with vibrant red bodywork, as well as
being ergonomically top-notch, all panels wrap neatly around the frame
and motor to improve the connection between rider and bike, for total
control in all situations.

Flex. Rigidity. Fun. The three most important things when it comes to our lightweight trellis frames. Designed to deliver razor sharp handling and stability, just the right amount of flex ensures an exhilarating ride on the SM 700, each and every time. Made from high-grade chromium-molybdenum steel to be super strong, precisely calculated torsional rigidity and longitudinal flex means riders of all abilities have the confidence to push harder, and ride further. They’re robot welded too, to ensure accuracy and the very best quality, always. Oh, and they weight just 8.4kg.

We want everyone to get the most out of each ride, which is why the self-supporting rear subframe on the GASGAS ES 700 houses a 13.5-liter fuel tank. Molded from a single piece of high strength polyamide and weighing just 5.2 kilograms, it’s super tough and placed to keep weight as low as possible for best handling. Want to add either a dedicated mounting frame or passenger handles? No problem, we already thought of that!

No welding, just a super-strong, great looking, die-cast swingarm, like on all our bikes! Made from a single piece of aluminum and weighing in at only 3.9 kilograms, the GASGAS ES 700 swingarm flexes perfectly to help improve both handling and power delivery. A WP rear shock connects perfectly to ensure progressive rear-end damping.

We know just how important great suspension is, which is why you’re going to love the WP XPLOR forks fitted to the ES 700. They’re the best in the business. They’re also incredibly easy to fine-tune, by hand, using small dials on the top of each fork leg – compression on the left fork, rebound adjustment on the right.

At the rear, the WP XPLOR shock is capable of soaking up the gnarliest of terrain. Featuring separate high and low speed compression adjustment as well as rebound damping, all three settings are simple to adjust making it fun and easy to dial in the rear suspension set-up. We’ve then used the geometry developed for our off-road range to connect the shock to the linkage for a super-smooth ride, even across the roughest ground.

It’s safe to say that there’s a lot going on with these triple clamps. In addition to the cool, black anodized finish, they play a vital role in getting the very best handling from the ES 700. Yes, their primary function is to hold the forks in place, but they’re designed in such a way that the clamping areas evenly distributes pressure onto the forks for improved front end suspension feel. Forks actually flex under heavy impacts and the CNC Machined Triple Clamps are engineered to let the front suspension flex and do its thing. And to keep vibration through the bars to an absolute minimum, we’ve used a rubber-mounted top clamp to add just a little more comfort.

GASGAS knows what’s needed for serious offroad performance, which is why
the ES 700 is fitted with high-quality hardware and components that
deliver reliability, performance, and a playful riding character.

Black wheels! There was no other choice when it came to finishing the SM 700. Providing a race bike look as standard, they’re not only super cool looking, they’re super lightweight as well and playing an important job in ensuring the very best handling. The 17″ wheels are fitted with Continental ContiAttack SM EVO tires for incredible grip, even at the most extreme lean angles.

Thoroughly tested on a wide variety of terrain, Continental TKC 80 tires are the perfect choice for the ES 700. Not only do they ensure exceptional grip both on the street and off-road, they’re also incredibly durable, allowing you to cover some serious distance before it’s time to replace them. Up front it’s a 90/90-21, at the rear we’ve fitted a 140/80-18.

Only two things get into the airbox of our ES 700 – fresh air, and your hands, when you need to change the air filter. Easily accessible from under the seat, the airbox is designed to provide the perfect air flow into the motor while ensuring maximum protection from the elements.

It’s all well and good creating a fast bike, but we needed to make sure that the ES 700 could stop in a hurry too! This is precisely why we equipped the bike with the latest ABS braking technology by Bosch. We fitted high performance Brembo brakes as they’re the best on the market, with a two-piston floating caliper up front that clamps onto a 300mm floating wave disc. For the rear brake we opted for a single piston caliper and a 240mm floating wave disc for controlled and precise braking in all conditions.

Fully loaded with everything that’s needed to ensure impressive big-bore
performance, the motor in our ES 700 is the most powerful in their
class, pumping out 55 kW (74hp) at 8,000 rpm, and pumping out 73.5Nm of
torque at 6,500 rpm! With a compact cylinder head design that features a
double spark plug for increased motor smoothness, and lower emissions,
our motors also ensure long service intervals. Fitted with PASC slipper
clutches for a little extra cornering fun, and lightweight 6-speed
gearboxes, the EURO 5 compliant stainless-steel exhaust system allows
our 700 to breathe freely, while delivering low sound, low emissions,
and maximum power output.

We like our 692.7cc motor fully loaded. Fully loaded with everything that’s needed to ensure impressive big-bore performance, and long service intervals. Boasting 55 kW (74hp) at 8,000 rpm, and pumping out 73.5Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm, there’s plenty of power for serious on-road and off-road riding. Tipping the scales at 43.4 kilograms including the electric start, throttle body, clutch, and coolant lines, weight isn’t an issue when it comes to our single-cylinder, single overhead cam power producer!

Reliability is super important to us, which is why the motors feature an active crankcase evacuation system, with forced engine lubrication, that in turn reduces oil friction and pump losses. The main benefits are long 10,000-km service intervals and extremely low fuel consumption for reduced running costs. And who doesn’t like that!

Suck, squeeze, bang, blow… isn’t that what they say happens inside a four-stroke cylinder? Allowing all that to take place, and ensuring that a ton of usable power is created too, the state-of-the-art four-valve cylinder head fitted to theES 700 has twin spare plugs to guarantee a smooth power delivery. The engine’s single overhead camshaft acts directly on the 42mm intake valves via finger followers with 34mm exhaust valves actuated by a rocker arm, which delivers more precise valve timing at higher engine speeds.

The hardworking parts at the heart of the motor that ensure reliability and performance. And, most importantly, those long service intervals. The crankshaft, that features an 80mm stroke, features a roller bearing to ensure those all-important long service intervals. To keep things smooth, there’s a second counter balance shaft that reduces inertia, lowering engine vibrations. Finally, to maintain reliability, even at the 8,000-rpm limit, the 700 motor features a high strength and wear-resistant combination of a plain bearing type connecting rod, a 105mm aluminum and silicon alloy piston, and a Diamond Like Coating (DLC) piston pin.

All about low sound, low emissions, and maximum power output, the stainless-steel exhaust systems allow our ES 700 to breathe freely. Perfectly integrated into the overall design of the bike, the exhaust system is also EURO 5 compliant.

With a specific A2 engine map limiting power to 30 kW, the ES 700 can be ridden by A2 license holders that wish to ride a true ‘Big Enduro’ bike both on and off-road.

Hands up who wants to get in and out of corners faster? Then it’s a good job we fitted an Adler power assist slipper clutch to the ES 700. Maximizing rear wheel grip when accelerating hard out of corners, the slipper clutch also prevents any rear wheel instability when under hard braking and downshifting, ensuring the bike is perfectly balanced when entering corners. The unique design also reduces unwanted vibrations and aids the feel at the clutch lever. Then there’s the Magura hydraulic clutch system, which delivers perfect action in all conditions, even from the very moment that the bike is fired into life.

Silky smooth, precise shifting from the lightweight 6-speed gearbox ensures you can accelerate hard and fast and stay in perfect control even in the most extreme conditions – both on track and off-road.

The hidden magic that helps make the ES 700 so much fun to ride!
State-of-the-art electronics ensure that all riders can adjust the power
delivery to perfectly suit their riding style, allowing everyone to
set-up the motorcycle’s performance just the way they like it. With
switchable ride modes the power characteristics and traction control can
be changed on the fly while lean-angle sensitive traction control
ensures perfect rear wheel grip in all riding conditions. Or, for those
that want full power at all times, traction control can be turned off
altogether! And, a Quickshifter ensures super smooth and efficient up
and down shifting without needed to use the clutch.

Doing exactly what its name suggests, the Quickshifter ensures super smooth and efficient up and down shifting without needed to use the clutch. Leaving you free to shift whenever needed, two sensors – one to detect movement of the shift lever rod and a second that detects gear engagement – take care of the clever stuff, meaning no matter how hard you’re accelerating, you can always hook the next gear. When it comes to downshifting, the system matches the engine speed to the speed of the lower gear for seamless downshifting.

Two ride modes for double the fun. Even when on the move you can switch from one ride mode to the other, adjusting the power delivery whenever you need to. Mode 1 – street mode – delivering a crisp throttle response together with cornering sensitive ABS and traction control. We like to think of it as the controlled street riding performance mode! Mode 2 – offroad mode on the ES 700 offers more specialized ‘get the job done better’ modes. For the ES 700 you get a smoother throttle response for better off-road traction, can spin the rear wheel as and when needed, and also lift the front wheel without sacrificing overall performance.

Serious off-road fun starts when the Off-road Ride Mode is engaged! Smoothing out the power to give a torquey throttle response, the built-in traction control system has been developed specifically for riding off-road. In tighter turns, this mode allows the rear wheel to spin and break traction for carving sharper lines. When you get straightened up, the front wheel can be lifted, allowing you to attack rough terrain with ease.

Lighting up the rear wheel exiting turns is so much fun. But on a day-to-day basis, it’s not always what you want. That’s why the lean-angle sensitive traction control system monitors rear wheel speed and reacts immediately (within milliseconds!) if the rear wheel’s turning faster than the bike’s overall speed. Jumping in to momentarily reducing the engine output, a smooth and barely noticeable reduction in power prevents any unwanted rear wheel sliding. Once things have settled down, full power is restored. For riders looking for total control of their motorcycle, traction control can also be completely switched off.

Getting you stopped, quick! The ES 700 is fitted with the very latest braking technology – a Bosch cornering ABS system. With the ABS switched off more experienced riders can push their limits. But when switched on, the technology ensures strong, progressive braking that removes any unwanted rear-wheel lock-ups or scary over the bars moments! The system also features advanced rollover protection, which works under heavy braking when in standard ABS mode.

Smart technology that results in the perfect power delivery. With a 50mm throttle body, the Keihin electronic fuel injection system does away with the need for a traditional throttle cable! Controlling the throttle valve electronically, the Engine Management System (EMS) continuously compares engine parameters with data from sensors to adjusts the throttle valve accordingly, resulting in perfect power delivery and throttle response. Additionally, it also provides a super impressive throttle response, specifically from slower speeds.

There’s also an off-road specific ABS mode integrated into this setting, which only applies to the front wheel. This ensures not only exceptional braking on loose surfaces but allows for the rear wheel to be locked, for controlled and quick changes in direction. And for those who are a little more daring, the ABS can be switched off completely, which allows riders to have total control over their braking for a real connection with the terrain and unrestricted off-road fun. To turn it off, all you need to do is press and hold down the ABS button on the dashboard for approximately three seconds. Simple!
