It is a little tough to decode the exact meaning of the GG press release. They seem to be speaking in circles, but that is typical for the Spaniards. Clearly 2012 production has been delayed. Has it really started? Well maybe. It does look like the cartridge air filter concept has been ditched. Perhaps just as well, as I have been stumped as to how it could work effectively. So read for yourself:

Complications in the final phase of ‘tests’ development in September led to the preferred alter some specifications of the bike and to postpone its launch.
After months of hard work, since we are pleased Gas imminent entry into the assembly line at our plant in Salt of the new EC 125, 250 and 300 cc of the 2012 season.Recent weeks have been of vital importance to the company and have overcome some of the most difficult moments of our most recent stage, but all this has allowed us to confirm once again the trust of our customers, distributors and suppliers for a project being faithful to our commitment to quality and commitment Gas with passion and a job well done, required to see altered their plan of industrialization.
The main entry into production enduro model of the firm decided to postponed after he should be the final testing process performed by our technicians and pilots show that their levels of efficiency and reliability did not meet the targets set by their degree of innovation and quality standards of the brand. Although changes made during recent years by systems using cartridge air filter Gas Gas had been betting on a leap into the future in order to achieve better performance, more practicality and ease of use, tests conducted in the most extreme conditions found that the competitiveness of this daring innovation is not covered with the highest values of demand that we want to offer our customers.
