Byron's sure to be hunched over a laptop after the checkers are flown, caught in his own little version of heaven. Whether on dirt, street or a combination of both, MotoUSA's newest addition knows the only thing better than actually riding is telling the story of how things went down.

Beta USA has revealed three 2015 Factory Edition Evo Trials models, all 2-strokes in 125, 250 or 300cc displacement sizes. Updates include new components and accessories to cut weight and add style, along with some technical changes aimed at improving power delivery and performance.

Across the line, the new Factory Evo Trial models get updated exhaust components. The silencer was changed to improve torque in the low- to mid-range, and a new titanium exhaust manifold aids in weight reduction and enhanced engine performance. Beta also revised the cylinder ports and combustion chamber to improve acceleration and throttle response across the rev range, and tweaked the carburetor settings to accord with the engine updates.

Additional weight savings were found with new magnesium ignition and clutch covers. Beta used silicone tubes which feature a new compound for the cooling system which promise to improve coolant flow and minimize heat.

The rear shock remains the same as the one found on standard Evo models, and the forks come with external adjusters which allow for tool-less changes to damping settings. New machined billet aluminum triple-clamps are a vibrant red, opposed to silver pieces used on standard Evo options.

The swath of accessories and upgraded components include a lanyard-style kill switch, anodized handlebar end caps, solid billet machined footrests and Michelin X-Light tires. There are new brake discs matched to BrakeTech components, a new red cylinder head cover and billet aluminum chain adjusters along with new red rims. The entire package is wrapped in updated Factory Team graphics as well.

Here’s the pricing breakdown for all three models.
Factory Evo Trial 125 – $7799.00
Factory Evo Trial 250 – $8299.00
Factory Evo Trial 300 – $8499.00

The Factory Edition Evo Trials bike will be available at authorized Beta dealerships starting in April 2015. They will also be available through Beta’s “Build Your Own Beta” program, which gives riders the option customizing a bike online and having it sent to a dealer. Customers can place orders for the BYOB Factory Edition Evo Trials bikes beginning February 11, 2015.
