Beta Releases Evo 300 SS Trial Motorcycle

2012 Beta Trial Motorcycle

American Beta, the sole-US importer of the Italy-based Beta motorcycles, has released a new model in the states – the Evo 300 SS, the name referring to “Super Smooth.”

The trial bike was developed in the USA, and designed for riders who want “softer” power delivery.

Tim Pilg (Beta’s Marketing Manager) says Tim Pilg: “We now can offer two completely different trials bikes to our customers in the 300cc class. The new SS model fills a gap for rider’s looking for a softer power for mud, slippery rocks, or just wanting a softer powerband. The power delivery of the SS mimics that of our Evo 250 but with much more torque and power.”

American Beta says the 300 SS begins with the current-model EVO, but has the following items added:

  • Special titanium header designed for more torque
  • Flywheel weight for more “chugability”
  • Different clutch friction plates for smoother action
  • One tooth smaller front sprocket and special red rear sprocket
  • Billet throttle pulley with bearing to smooth out action
  • Domino grips that are wider and thicker
  • Special front number plate that includes rider’s name and number
  • Special SS graphics package
