Bultaco Metralla GTS A M203A


This last version of the legendary Metralla didn’t do much to honour its name, as they lost the sporting character of the early models. Bultaco had been focusing for too long on its off-road bikes, neglecting the technical aspects of its road bikes. Therefore, these new Metrallas, which were first called GT and then GTS (the first versions of them having drum brakes, and after restyling, disc brakes and alloy wheels) were more of an all-purpose, comfortable bike and didn’t maintain the original “racing spirit” of the series. The last version of the GTS was the only Bultaco to be commercialised in different colours. The company, in a last attempt to recover the prestige of this model, worked on a project for a 370cc version which was never produced.
