Cape York Motorcycle Adventures continue to pioneer in top end

Hot on the heels of their Outdoors Queensland award for adventure tourism, Cape York Motorcycle Adventures are joining forces with GASGAS. The Spanish bike brand will replace its existing relationship with Suzuki.

“We’ve been looking to move away from carburettors to a fuel-injected bike for a while now but couldn’t find anything that really met our needs,” company director Roy Kunda said.

“GASGAS is a lot lighter, which means better handling in technical conditions, the suspension is better for the type of riding conditions we do, the handlebars are stronger and the rims a heavier duty, so they can take our tough treatment,” he added.

“I also like the wide-ratio gearbox which makes it ideal for the type of riding we expose the bikes to and the availability of a long-range fuel tank,” he said.

“Being fuel injected, they minimize emissions and maximize fuel economy, which is what we look for in our purchases. The EFI and hydraulic clutch make the GASGAS a better, more modern package straight out of the crate, and they’re much easier to work on.”

Cape York Motorcycle Adventures have had former professional rider and now tour guide, Juan Reyes testing the bike for the last six months and he’s really enjoyed the ride.

“The GASGAS is a huge step up from the DRZ, it’s a whole new generation. Obviously, the weight is a major difference, the engine response much faster and the suspension feels safer and more capable of bigger bumps and jumps,” Juan explained.

“The new fleet has done its first tour with a cross section of riders with differing skills and riding abilities within the group, and the bikes held together extremely well, showing little wear, so I’m really happy with them, I believe the GASGAS will be with us for the long haul,” Roy said.

The GASGAS bikes will join the recently acquired CFMOTO 800MT adventure bikes that were added to the fleet earlier this year. You can find out more about their tours via or by calling (07) 4055 0050.
