Press release
As a bike manufacturer involved in promoting trials for younger riders, Beta has to be able to grasp problems and especially must be able to understand the needs of the kids (and the mums and dads) who are facing this incredible world for the first time, this “constant balancing act on two wheels”.

It was created essentially as very much a user-friendly vehicle for the novice (9-11 years old).

A beginner must feel at ease with the bike, and the new 80 Junior offers exactly this approach.

The EVO range has been completely revised for 2013: new frame, new plastics, improved ergonomics and greater versatility.

Improving what for years has been the benchmark in Trial is always difficult, but once again the Tuscany House has managed to make a major development in its 2013 EVO models, starting with the introduction of a technology that has never been previously applied in the Trial market.

The new 2013 EVO is in fact the first trial bike in the World to use a frame where the main section is obtained by hydroforming with all the advantages that this technology allows. Ease of maintenance, friendly riding, and ergonomics are further improved on the 2013’s by raising the bar to an even higher level of quality in the EVO family. The experience gained in the last year of racing and the constant research for new technical solutions, have led to an excellent product under any point of view.

The 2013 EVO is therefore a great bike able to compete at the highest levels in national and international competitions and at the same time allows hobby riders to discover how easy the new EVO is to ride.

Technically, the bike is a specially simplified EVO 80. A vehicle that has been rethought for young people taking their first steps in trials.

Its measurements are those of a 50, but the two-stroke engine is an 80cc. This combination allows the youngster to confront obstacles with the necessary degree of confidence: the dimensions are reassuring and the engine has just enough thrust.
Even the suspension settings have been correctly modified in view of the fact that that the rider may be essaying trials for the first time.

Other features

  • hydraulic disc brakes fitted front and rear
  • hydraulic clutch
  • 19” front wheel, 17” rear

Even the sale price of the EVO 80 Junior has been carefully thought out ... so as not to frighten the parents of new teenage trials enthusiasts even before buying the bike. Beta have made the price strongly competitive, in the hope of encouraging interest in one of the more spectacular motorcycle events, both among riders and spectators.
