Since early 2020 when GASGAS took on the Dakar Rally for the very first time , Hinson Clutch Components have been fitted inside all of our MXGP , enduro , and rally bikes as we know just how tough , reliable , and high performing they are ! So when the time came to renew things with the world ’ s best clutch component manufacturer , it was a pretty easy decision to make , and GASGAS Factory Racing will continue to benefit from using Hinson products throughout 2023 and 2024 .
Hinson has been manufacturing high-performance clutch components since 1992 , so when we went full throttle into offroad racing at the turn of the decade , there was only one brand to call when it came to sourcing quality clutches for our dirt bikes . Shortly after the ink had dried on that deal , we won our first round of MXGP , and soon after that we won an AMA Supercross main event !
Fast forward a little and by far the biggest accomplishment that
GASGAS and Hinson have achieved together is winning the 2022 Dakar Rally ! The grueling event , won by Sam Sunderland and his Hinson equipped RC 450F , required high performance and next-level reliability in order to succeed . And without a doubt , Sam ’ s win proved just how capable GASGAS Factory Racing machines fitted with Hinson products truly are .
ROBERT JONAS Head of Motorsports Offroad :
“ Over the last three years , GASGAS and Hinson have won world championships in enduro and of course , Sam Sunderland won the Dakar which is clearly the highlight of the partnership so far . There has also been MXGP , and AMA Supercross and Pro Motocross wins too , so to continue the relationship with Hinson was a really easy decision to make . Hinson is one of the key technical partners that GASGAS Factory Racing has and on behalf of the team , I know everyone involved in the racing program
