B E TA Back to black
Italian motorcycle manufacturer Beta launches the new EVO MY 2020 trials model range onto the market with a claim of ‘ Superior technology’. Extensive development and technical refinement work carried out by Beta engineers and test riders at their Tuscany base last year resulted in the production of an engine that provides even more performance and reliability. The new EVO MY 2020 model range represents a further evolution of this successful machine, especially in terms of design and ergonomics.
With experience gained over the years spent in competitions at the highest level, this year’s Beta Factory Team, made up of Great Britain’s James Dabill and French rider Benoit Bincaz, were able to transfer all that technological know-how to the new ‘Trial’ range, so that both amateurs and professionals could get access to this highly-evolved motorcycle technology.
The two-stroke version is available in four different engine sizes: 125cc, 200cc, 250cc, 300cc & 300cc SS (‘SS’ stands for ‘Super Smooth’ a model with a smoother character compared to the standard version).
The popular four-stroke model, on the other hand, comes with the usual 300cc engine which provides an impeccable combination of performance and ease-of-use, once again for riders of all abilities.
CHASSIS: Much attention has been paid to the chassis design and the all-important look of the Evo MY 2020. It has been completely revised, making it an even more attractive model.
NEW FRONT HEADLAMP COWL: Completely redesigned for that decisive look and markedly racing spirit.
NEW TANK COVER: Fully redesigned, further highlighting the hydroformed aluminum chassis that is a particular feature of the Evo models.
NEW MAPPING SELECTOR SWITCH: With a revolutionary new design, this has been moved from the front headlamp cowl to the new tank cover, making access and visibility easier. It now also has an LED indicator light making it much simpler to identify which mapping is selected by the rider.
NEW REAR FENDER: A completely redesigned shape with particular attention paid to the new LED taillight.
NEW FRONT FORK SETTING: Using the experience Beta gained with the 2019 Factory model, the hydraulics have been made even more progressive. They have also introduced the ability to fit a compression adjuster kit - already fitted to the Factory model range. NEW ANODIZED PARTS: Gear shift lever, foot brake lever, engine cylinder head – Two-Stroke.
NEW GRAPHICS AND COLOURS: A fresh new appearance comes from the aesthetics to enhance the competition ready appearance.
ENGINE: On all the two and four-stroke engines, including the 300 SS, Beta has revised and optimised the engine timing advance curves to improve engine responsiveness and make the machine easier to ride at all levels of engine performance. The engine obviously retains all the major updates it received in 2019, including the cylinder with new exhaust port geometry and new timing charts: Two-stroke, except the 125cc; Gearstopper cam, two-stroke; New CDI control two and four-stroke; New throttle four-stroke.
