2022 BETA: TRIAL (EVO) BIKE UPDATES

2 months ago | Words: Andy Wigan | Photos: Betamotor

Because Beta has been kicking so many goals with their world-class enduro bikes (the RR and RR Racing ranges) and the big-selling XTrainer 250 and 300, it can be easy to overlook the Italian brand’s storied trial-bike roots and the broad range of top-shelf rock-hopping machines it continues to produce. So, let’s take stock of Beta’s latest range of trial-bike models (EVO), which came in for significant changes to suspension for 2022, along with an all-new red frame and graphics.

Here’s a snapshot of the upgrades that Beta’s six-model 2022 EVO range receives…

THE VISUALS

  • The frame is now painted in distinctive Beta red colour to accentuate the beauty of the hydroformed aluminium structure – a hallmark feature of the EVO range.
  • A number of details (such as the handlebar) have changed colour to create a more modern and aggressive look.
  • The air filter box is now red. Functionally, it is the same as before, as is the dedicated TwinAir foam filter. The filter is accessible either from above (via the small cover) or by removing the rear mud guard (which only takes a few simple steps).
  • All-new graphics.

THE SUSPENSION

  • The suspension has been updated with revised fork settings to optimise the damping curve in both fully compressed and fully extended states. This has been achieved by modifying both the mechanical settings of the suspension and the volume of oil contained in the stanchions (with different quantities used for the right- and left-hand sides of the fork). This means that EVO is equipped with an asymmetric fork, with the left- and right-hand stanchions differing both functionally and in internal volume.
  • The left-hand side features adjustable spring length, for setting ride height, while the hydraulic functions of the fork are adjustable on the right-hand stanchion, for customising the damping behaviour and responsiveness of the front-end.
  • By using different oil volumes, calibrated specifically for the left- and right-hand stanchions, both the progressiveness of the fork and the precision with which feel is transmitted to the rider have been improved.

THE PRICES

Available now from Beta dealers, the 2022 EVO models are priced as follows:

  • EVO 80 2T Junior/Senior: $6295/$6795
  • EVO 125 2T: $9795
  • EVO 200 2T: $9995
  • EVO 250 2T: $10,695
  • EVO 300/300SS 2T: $10,995
  • EVO 300 4T: $12,495

The above RRPs include GST, but not recommended pre-delivery costs ($149).
