2018 Beta Evo 200 Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features
Evo 2 Stroke:
All the 2-stroke versions – including the 300 SS – have the following new features, designed to give the bikes a more technically polished feel. Engines boast new low-friction main bearings that reduce energy loss and thus improve low-rev performance.
A look at the suspension shows that both rear shock and front fork have been calibrated to give greater progression, absorbing and dampening major impacts with even greater efficiency. Both front fork legs now use the same amount of oil to help simplify servicing.
The wheels feature hubs that have been reinforced in the disc and sprocket attachment areas to boost impact-resistant reliability and are now mounted with Dunlop tires. The design has also been overhauled, with new graphics and colors on the bare anodized aluminum frame and black wheels with white/red decals.
