Gazgas Classic Motor Gorilla Review
The Monkey and Gorilla models are synonymous with its name in getting the attention of the crowd and offer great performance too. The shorter wheelbase, shorter height and fuel tank fixed onto the frame combined and the thick profile of the tyres fixed on to the stylish alloy wheels are introduced as standard features in this model.
True to the name tag given it features the same specifications of the sibling model, Monkey except that the fuel tank is of a higher volume of 6Liters as against 4.5Litres of Monkey variant and there is a change in shape of the seat as well. The larger and bolder design of fuel tank and the superior quality of seat with better cushioning gets special attention of the onlookers. The dimensional features 1355mm X 600mm X8600mm (Length X Width X Height) and wheelbase 900mm, kerb weight of 64kg make it a convenient bike for youngsters.
Engine, economy and performance
This bike features single cylinder four stroke air cooled petrol engine with 107cc delivering the power of 6hp at 7500rpm and 7.2Nm at 4500rpm.The engine mated with 4-speed gearbox and chain drive connected to rear wheels. Gazgas has given the option to choose from gearbox with shifter pattern as one down and three up or with all gears up-shift. A smooth starting is achieved with kick start and electric start as an option, the smooth acceleration can reach a speed of around 40kmph in a short interval and maximum speed is limited to 80kmph on normal road conditions. In city usage, one can expect mileage 60kmpl and around 65kmpl in highway riding conditions.
The easy starting and smooth acceleration of the engine resulted in the quicker development of speed and the bike can reach a speed of the order of 45kmph in a brisk pace, and takes extra time for reaching top speed. The ground clearance of 120mm is too short for and the absence of strong engine guard demands careful riding over road humps and spoilt road conditions. Easy to steer handlebar and the fine grip of broad profile tyre fitted on to the R10 size alloy wheels make it easy to balance on gradients and sharp turns on highways.

This bike Is designed as a style statement bike for the youngsters and also offer unmatched performance in the segment. The broader wheels with strong buttons on tyre help for safe riding over wet surfaces and slippery conditions. The smooth and effective operation of brakes is achieved with disc brakes at front and drum brake at the rear. Front suspension with telescopic shock absorber and rear suspension with twin telescopic shock absorbers connected on to the frame absorb road shocks and provide better comfort for the rider.
This is a next level performance version of the sibling model Monkey and offers greater comfort to the rider and good combination of bold design and fuel economy, which makes it a great companion for a long ride.
