Test Beta Alp 200
The motorcycle to the film. Simple, meaningless and yet so ingenious. Highest entertainment value with the simplest means. Wacky as normal.
It can blink, horn, rear-view mirrors and throw lights. Luggage and two people can also be used. And e-start. And anyway, the Alp 200 is a very complete motorcycle.
The Italian family business is now venturing out to the wider public with the Alp. Of course with special consideration of civil interests. That’s why the 200 doesn’t come as a sawing two-stroke milling machine, but rather a civil four-stroke. The single-cylinder “made by Suzuki” has at least 15 HP, all of which are so brave that you rarely feel underpowered. Around the Japanese implant, the Florentines fabricated a chassis that looks more like a full-suspension mountain bike than a full-blown motorcycle. Short, small, narrow, compact. Front is back, is up, is down? everything is tightly compressed. The whole thing weighs 116 kilograms, including nine liters of fuel in the tank, fits in one piece in every MPV and prefers to go hiking.
Narrow, steep, difficult paths ?? the more pristine the realm, the more the beta is in its element. It is guaranteed to go anywhere a vehicle can go without a wing or propeller. And the best thing about it: Climbing into the Alps doesn’t even require special talent. Little slip up? no problem: where there isn’t much, not much can break. Muddled situation ?? It doesn’t matter: In an emergency, the part is pushed, lifted or packed into the backpack. Everything is possible, just not bolting around, because trial enduros are not made for bolting around.
S.Even in asphalt operation, the Alp is not keen on playing its 105 km / h top speed. Firstly, it starts to tailspin at 80 things, secondly, its bonsai brakes are not capable of destroying higher speeds, and thirdly, the rock-hard spring elements ward off almost no attack from the underground. To cut a long story short: from a conventional perspective, beta is quite a cucumber. But whoever dismisses it disappointed has approached it with false expectations. Alpine driving is different. Alpine driving is a game. Much funnier and less time-consuming than ordinary motorcycling. The rule is: to cheat the city traffic, to find the shortest route to the country, to practice the high jump on the rocks by the river. Just like that, just for the fun of it.
