Beta Evo UK
Year on year the Italian Beta brand aims to please, with ever increasing refinements and changes to an already proven, bullet-proof machine. The two-stroke Evo 2T is established as a top selling model, but what is becoming more apparent is how popular the four-stroke Evo 4T model is. The Beta engineers at the Italian base have been hard at work on the fine details, resulting in a range of machines that now provide outstanding levels of technical refinement, performance and reliability for riders of a wide range of age and ability. As always the hallmark of the Beta family is the sharp-edged efficiency for both the everyday rider through to those with world championship aspirations. The two-stroke range offers four different engine sizes consisting of 125, 200, 250 and 300, whilst the four-stroke version has the well proven 300cc power unit. This offers very smooth power delivery and a sound alternative to the two-stroke models thanks to its user-friendly engine design and four-stroke concept.
All the two-stroke versions in the 2018 range have the following new features designed to give the machines a more technical and polished feel for the rider. The engines boast new low-friction main bearings that reduce energy loss and thus improve low-rev performance and reduce heat.
A close look at the suspension shows that both the rear shock and front forks have been calibrated to give greater progression, improving both absorbing and damping in major impacts with even greater efficiency. Both front fork legs now use the same amount of oil to help simplify servicing. The wheels feature aluminium hubs that have been reinforced in the disc and rear sprocket mounting areas to boost impact-resistant reliability. The design has also been overhauled with new graphics and colours on the anodized aluminium frame and black wheels with white/ red decals to further improve an already elegant looking machine.
The 300 4T four-stroke engine has undergone further development, resulting in a new twin-spark control unit which ensures improved combustion to boost performance and throttle response precision. Combined with a spark plug with a new electrode that now protrudes further into the combustion chamber this gives more immediate, precise ignition ensuring cleaner carburetion under all riding conditions and throttle openings. A larger oil pump has also been introduced, reducing engine braking significantly and completely eliminating the on-off effect at low revs. The internals of the exhaust layout have been revised, resulting in a ‘sharper’ engine performance and linearity to ensure outstanding consistency across the machine’s entire handling range.
A look at the suspension shows that, as on the two-stroke range, both the rear shock and front forks have been calibrated to give greater progression in absorbing and damping in major impacts with even greater efficiency. Both front fork legs now use the same amount of oil to help simplify servicing. The wheels feature hubs that have been reinforced in the disc and sprocket attachment areas to boost impact-resistant reliability. The design has also been overhauled, with new graphics and colours on the anodized aluminium frame and black wheels with white/red decals. The four-stroke models are still very popular, as you will find out if you try one.
