2020 EVO Factory 2-stroke, 250
Compared to the standard version - which has already introduced numerous design/ergonomic improvements this year - the Factory version adds a whole series of components that make it battle-ready come competition time.
Factory version engines differ from standard version power units as follows:
Black magnesium casings: a more appealing look and greater weight savings to help create an even more agile ride.
Titanium exhaust head pipe: boosts performance and reduces weight.
Profiled clutch discs: reduces plate flexing for a stronger engagement under all riding conditions.
Special racing cylinder with optimized porting: brings out the full racing character of the engine without affecting user-friendliness.
Cylinder head with specially designed volume and squish (300 cc only):for a further performance boost; what's more, the red paintwork enhances the 'factory' character of this bike.
Special ignition programming: to work in junction with the cylinder and exhaust, ensures excellent low-rev handling without compromising mid-high rev performance.
Black anodized engine oil plugs.
From a design and chassis viewpoint, the new 2020 EVO Factory differs from the standard version as follows:
Fork with re-calibrated fork hydraulics and compression adjustment: ensures an optimal setting whatever the conditions.
Gold anodized machined-from-solid triple clamp: besides reducing weight and increasing stiffness, lets the rider shift the handlebar risers forwards or backwards to adjust bike set-up to perfection.
Rear suspension with longer wheelbase and adjustment of both compression and rebound: more progressive hydraulics allows for a more refined set-up that provides benefits in terms of pre-obstacle compression and push-off.
Rear suspension with new hydraulic settings: provides much greater low-speed control which aids balance and stability while riding.
Rear suspension with new 'spring guide' geometry:increases high-impact absorption through greater flexibility of the shock absorber plug, which now features a bigger containment space.
Linkage progression: even more sensitive and progressive, ensuring better responsiveness and traction.
Lanyard-type kill switch: ensures even greater riding safety.
Black anodized bar end plugs: protect the grips and throttle.
Black anodized chain adjusters: make chain tension adjustments extremely precise.
Machined-from-solid foot pegs in non-slip steel: besides clearly improving boot grip, these ensure significant weight reduction.
Galfer racing brake discs: deliver more powerful braking, weight savings and a 'racier' look.
BrakTec brake and clutch pumps: for improved braking modulation.
Black anodized brake and clutch pump covers.
Rear brake caliper with brake pad anti-vibration system.
New gold Excel rims.
Michelin X-light tires: maximize grip whatever the riding conditions.
New look and new decal graphics: the racing spirit of this bike is enhanced by new graphics in the Beta Factory colors of red, white and blue, with gold trims.
