2015 Beta Minitrail Electric Review
2015 Beta Minitrail Electric on Totalmotorcycle.com
The Minitrial Electric model continues and now has a big brother in the form of a twenty inch. The 16″ model is designed for youth riders between the ages of 5-9 years of age and the new 20″ for the older siblings 8-12.
These models have taken electric trials to a new level with their seamless power with no hesitation or gaps like the competition. This alone will build confidence in future trial champions. The frames are aluminum making the bikes a full 8 pounds lighter than other brands. To make things even better, the bikes have full hydraulic brakes with an adjustable air shock in the back.
The Minitrial E has a three-position power switch (slow, Medium, Fast) and will run for roughly a full three hours on the slow/trial position. Prices for the 16″ have remained the same for 2015 while the 20″ is priced $400.00 more at $2299.00.
2015 Beta Minitrail Electric Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
-Rugged chassis and swingarm: Weight is important in a youth trial bike. Both the frame and the swingarm are constructed of aluminum with a hardness heat treatment, achieving a robust bike that does not exceed 24 kg (53 lbs). Another very important feature is the weight distribution, it is designed with an optimized center of gravity for a comfortable ride while providing maximum traction.
-Programmable digital switchboard: As a result of experience in the evolution of the electronic components in the trial bike, the Minitrial-E has a programmable digital control with 3 power curves. All of them with an initial soft engagement to eliminate the abrupt “on / off” characteristic of electric motors. The first setting, a learning curve for the new rider, the second setting is for wet conditions or for continued learning and the third setting is for the more advanced rider.
-Adjustable Suspension: The front fork with 25 mm tubes, adjustable compression spring in oil bath with an air shock for the rear suspension.
-Shimano Hydraulic Brakes: Provide perfect braking, a mark of quality and reliability for the younger rider.
-Guards: The front brake as well as for the drive chain are enclosed to insure safety.
-Chain Guide: Essential for off road, this unique chain guide insures a proper guide for the chain to reduce failures.
