Beta: 2021 Trial Bike Mods

3 weeks ago | Words: Andy Wigan | Photos: Beta Motorcycles Australia

Just last week, after getting our first glimpse of Beta’s 2021-model trial bikes at the Italian Trial Championship, we took stock of the range’s evolution over the past three years. And this week, Beta officially released the details or their 2021 trial bikes, along with pricing for the Australian market.

Beta’s 2021 two-stroke Evo models will again be available in four different versions – 125, 250, 300 and 300SS (“Super Smooth”). The SS model gets additional flywheel weight for increased inertia and other small measures designed to make it more manageable at medium to low RPMs compared to the standard version, but still maintain the ‘standard’ 300’s racing nature at higher revs. In short, the 300SS is easier and more entertaining to ride. Beta’s 2021 four-stroke only comes in the 300cc engine capacity.

Here’s a snapshot of the Italian manufacturer’s PR about its 2021 machines…

Following a path of continuous improvement and fine-tuning, the 2021 Evo range has been updated with various modifications aiming to even better performance and easier use. Although competitions had been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Betamotor technicians managed to keep the development activity going, working along with our factory pilots – James Dabill, Benoit Bincaz, Matteo Grattarola and Luca Petrella. Here are the main upgrades found on the 2021 Evo range:

ROLLING CHASSIS

  • A completely renewed look – more modern and aggressive.
  • Updated fork settings – the enhanced hydraulic calibration provides a more progressive approach when facing major obstacles, along with a better absorption capacity of small bumps.
  • Updated shock settings – the hydraulics have been revised to improve balance and pitch reduction, especially when encountering a series of small bumps.

ENGINE

  • Revised carburetor on all two-stroke and four-stroke models, including the 300SS – this is to ensure better rideability in all conditions.
  • Revised ignition mapping has – for a more linear and predictable engine response.

According to Beta Australia’s Sales and Marketing Manager, Nic Gow, the 2021 Evo range will start arriving in Australian dealers this November, at the following RRPs:

  • Evo 80 Jnr – $5995
  • Evo 80 Snr – $6495
  • Evo 125 2T – $9595
  • Evo 200 2T – $9795
  • Evo 250 2T – $10,395
  • Evo 300 2T/SS – $10,695
  • Evo 300 4T – $11,995
