2022 Beta Evo Lineup First Look (4 Fast Facts – Trials Motorcycles)

2022 Beta Evo 300

The 2022 Beta Evo lineup of full-sized observed trials bikes is here. There are five models to choose from—four 2-strokes, plus a single big-bore 4-stroke. This is a holding pattern year for Beta trails bikes, though there are a few changes. Let’s see what’s up.

  1. The fork settings are new in two ways. The focus is on performance at the extreme ends of the travel. Beta has changed the oil level in the fork tubes. Additionally, suspension valving settings are new. Beta claims the changes result in “much-improved progressiveness of the fork and a more precise response.” As before, the left leg handles springing, while the right leg houses valving.

  1. The paint and plastic are now red with white and black accents. For the first time, the plastic airbox is red. Also, the previously silver handlebar is now black.

  1. Beta has changed its trials bike naming convention. The displacement number used to come before Evo, which is often the case with European brands. Now, Evo follows the displacement. The 2021 Beta 300 Evo becomes the 2022 Beta Evo 300.
