MC 50 2024

Fun times start right here! Our awesome little MC 50 is a mini motocrosser designed to encourage the next generation of berm bashers to take on full size circuits in style, and with complete confidence. A long list of quality components together with adjustable ergonomics let kids experience motocross like never before with post-ride ear-to-ear grins guaranteed. Updated for 2024 with a new motor, exhaust, clutch, frame, and smoother bodywork, the kid (or kids) in your life will have an absolute blast riding the MC 50!
As you can see, the MC 50 certainly looks the business with its all new bodywork! All red to really stand out from the crowd, it’s not only vibrant, but with larger contact areas 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 that makes movement on the bike so much easier, especially for shorter riders.

One really cool thing about the MC 50 is that it can be adjusted in size to suit so many different 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! 

Helping kids ride with a perfect technique are new handlebars. They’re a little taller, they have a much more modern bend, and they’re 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 50 so much more stable at speed.

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.

The new frame on the MC 50 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 50 turns sharper with no loss of straight-line stability.

Giving youngsters the performance they need, especially as they begin to pick up their pace, the WP XACT forks fitted to the MC 50 offer exceptional damping. With no less than 205mm 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.

Our little MC 50 may well be our smallest 2-stroke, but it’s big on quality components such as the WP shock. Fully adjustable, we’re talking preload, rebound, and high and low speed compression, the shock couldn’t be easier to set-up then refine as and when required.

The MC 50 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 12mm rear wheel axle. And for when the going gets tough, the new chain guide and slider have a rounder profile to help the bike glide through the deepest ruts.

A new bike isn’t anything without a new motor, right? For 2024, the performance of the MC 50 is boosted considerably by a repositioned crankshaft that in turn, improves the intake angle for a much more direct flow of air, not to mention the centralization of mass for refined handling. There’s also a new cylinder and ignition for an even broader spread of power. With all these significant changes, kids of all abilities will absolutely love riding the MC 50.

With the MC 50 powered by a new motor, it was necessary to update the jetting settings inside the Dell’Orto PHBG 19 BS carburetor to suit. And just like before, the MC 50 runs as sweet as a nut.

Unlocking more power from the 50cc 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.

There’s a brand-new automatic clutch inside the MC 50. Upgraded for 2024 to be stronger with a reinforced basket and high-quality plates, everyone will benefit. Riders will enjoy the consistent performance while parents will love just how durable it is. 

Make no mistake, the MC 50 is fast! So fast in fact that we’ve put wavy disks on it front and rear to dissipate heat quickly, and hydraulic brakes to guarantee consistent braking at all times. The rear brake pedal now features the same tip as our full-size dirt bikes, which makes using the rear brake easier than ever.

Making sure the MC 50 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.

Wrapped with MAXXIS MAXXCROSS-MX-ST tires for maximum grip on the widest range of surfaces, the MC 50 rolls on lightweight and strong wheels with the black anodized rims creating a super cool look.

Keeping the MC 50 running at the perfect temperature regardless of how gnarly the track gets is a new radiator. With just the one rad, instead of two like on the old model, the MC 50 now has a really simple layout for all the hoses, which leads to more efficient cooling and also, easier maintenance.
