I have almost no experience on trials bikes, and the idea of the Sport model sounded great to me—a go-anywhere (easily) trailbike. The biggest problem I had with this bike compared to the traditional Beta Evos was the factory’s tire swap. Without a rear trials tire’s amazing traction to convert “throttle” to “front wheelie lift,” the whole front end felt much heavier. I know it was heavier, but I think the rear tire spin contributed more than the pounds. The seat is too low to comfortably ride, but it does work great as a “safety catch” if you forget you’re on a trials bike and sit down. And if you’re not used to a trials bike, it is a short rest for your back or neck muscles on a trail ride. The extra fuel capacity is the big upside to this bike. If you want to get away from the truck, it’s great to have the fuel in the bike, not in a fuel bottle. If I had this machine, my first mod would be to put a rear trials tire back on it. I’d keep my speeds low and have an incredibly fun, light, and quiet go-anywhere bike.
