Which bike for new trials rider - Beta or GasGas

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a modern trilas bike to improve my technical skills over big rocks and trees. Not so much for trials comp. I may trail ride it too some.

There are 3 for sale reasonably close to me:

2002 Beta Rev 3 270

2004 GasGas 280

2006 Beta Rev 3 270

All are around $2,500. The 02 Beta looks to be the best condition.

Mainly looking for problem bikes to avoid. Like carb issues.

Thanks for any input!

$2,500 each? Heck, buy all 3! Then YOU can tell US which was the best one.. :bonk:

Just kidding of course, but they are all good bikes and all can have issues depending upon how the PO took care of them. I have an 04 GG 300 that has seen a lot of abuse from new riders and they have managed to break a few things but the bike is easy to work on so it's back in top shape but just doesn't look as pretty as my 07 GG Raga 300. I have no experience with Beta so I would just be guessing there. Take the one that has the best parts support or rider support in your area. That would be my best advice. :smirk:
