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.
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.
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.
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
