Trial Magazine - - PRESENTATI­ON - WORDS: JOHN HULME

Scorpa present its new range of Twenty Tri­als mod­els in 2015 and, to be quite hon­est, they looked good from the word go; which is al­ways a good sign. The 2016 evo­lu­tion of the ma­chine range comes as the re­sult of con­tin­ued de­vel­op­ment at the Scorpa Fac­tory. The 2016 mod­els have re­ceived sev­eral ma­jor new fea­tures and mod­i­fi­ca­tions, de­vel­oped from the valu­able in­for­ma­tion ob­tained through par­tic­i­pa­tion in the World Tri­als Cham­pi­onship with Scorpa’s young, tal­ented riders. This has re­sulted in a sig­nif­i­cant evo­lu­tion of this rel­a­tively new line of tri­als mo­tor­cy­cles and pro­vides im­proved per­for­mance at all lev­els in­clud­ing over­all per­for­mance, strength and safety. In this, the sec­ond ver­sion since Scorpa started mar­ket­ing the Twenty range, the 2016 mod­els rep­re­sent the strong po­si­tion Scorpa oc­cu­pies in the world­wide mo­tor­cy­cle tri­als mar­ket.

125cc

The 125cc is the small­est of the Scorpa Twenty range of two-stroke mod­els. Young peo­ple can start their rid­ing ca­reer on prac­ti­cally the same ma­chine as the larger dis­place­ment, pro­fes­sional mod­els. The 125cc ma­chine is dif­fer­ent from the rest of the pro­duc­tion mod­els only in its smaller dis­place­ment. It shares all of the cy­cle-parts and there­fore all the ben­e­fits and ad­van­tages of­fered by the mod­ern Twenty Tri­als Range. The added ben­e­fit is that young riders will have an ex­cel­lent foun­da­tion from which to ac­cel­er­ate their learn­ing curve and will soon be able to take the next step up to the pow­er­ful 250cc and 300cc en­gined ma­chines when they feel their abil­ity is at this level of ma­chin­ery.

250/300cc

The 250cc and 300cc sin­gle cylin­der liq­uid-cooled mod­els are the main show­case of the Scorpa Twenty range. All the mod­els use the same base mo­tor and the five-speed gear­box renowned for its ver­sa­til­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity.

The 250cc is with­out doubt the favourite of the trial en­thu­si­ast, be­cause of its ex­cel­lent per­for­mance and the ex­cep­tional en­gine that al­lows the rider to face any sit­u­a­tion in a calm and con­trolled sit­u­a­tion.

The 300cc is the king by far though, and proudly wears the crown. Its pow­er­ful en­gine al­lows its rider to face all chal­lenges in the mod­ern world of mo­tor­cy­cle tri­als. The 300cc is pre­ferred by the pro­fes­sional riders of the high­est stan­dard and is the one that is used in the World Cham­pi­onship com­pe­ti­tions in the hands of young Billy Bolt. The pow­er­ful Scorpa en­gine is the base of all the fac­tory mod­els and it demon­strates the abil­ity to per­form at the high­est level on any type of ter­rain or at any event, what­ever the con­di­tions.

2016

The 2016 evo­lu­tions are: Marzocchi alu­minium front fork; new dy­namic frame de­sign; the open­ing of the air fil­ter in­let mod­i­fied to im­prove air flow to the fil­ter; new han­dle­bar shape; a new ther­mo­stat con­trol sen­sor for bet­ter en­gine cool­ing; re­pro­grammed CDI for im­proved en­gine per­for­mance; new reed valve petals sup­port; re­designed si­lencer in­te­rior for bet­ter per­for­mance; new kick-start mount; new ra­di­a­tor sup­port bracket; and new ther­mal in­su­la­tion for the in­te­rior of the fil­ter box. To com­ple­ment the evo­lu­tion of the ma­chine the aes­thet­ics have been im­proved to en­hance the or­ange look of the ma­chine
