2014 Beta EVO 250 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Updates for EVO 125cc, 200cc, 250cc and 300cc 2T models:

CHASSIS UPDATES

FRAME :

-The frame is now in black to enhance the overall look of the bike.

FRONT FORK ASSEMBLY:

-All new triple clamps that have a sleek design that is lighter and provides less friction with less pinch bolts for the fork tubes. The 2013 style clamp had two bolts on the top and three on the bottom while the new clamp has only one on the top and two on the bottom.

-The new clamp also offers a pinch bolt for the top steering stem that replaces the spanner nut to reduce weight and simplify adjustments to the steering head bearings.

-Handlebar mounts are lower and closer together to allow more flex in the bar while also offering a more comfortable riding position.

-Low-friction SKF forks seals are now standard on all Evo models.

-New valving for a better “feel” and less negative feedback to the rider.

REAR SHOCK:

-New rear shock which is longer in length and a new piston, along with new valving that was inspired by the Beta factory Trial Team to match the new front fork settings.

SKID PLATES:

-New design of the skid plate that is lighter and with a better shape for large impacts.

-New rear shock linkage guard to protect the rocker assembly from damage and reducing wear on the bearings from the mud.

EXHAUST:

-Muffler is now mounted with a new system developed by the Beta Race team to increase durability, this is the same system found on the 2013 Factory Editions.

FOOTPEGS:

-All NEW footpegs built with Micro-fusion technology. This design is more appealing, lighter, and also more resistant to mud packing in the peg.
