Default GasGas Trials

I have been riding trials for awhile now and thinking about upgrading my 04 Scorpa 250 Long Ride sometime in the future. Since I might switch to GasGas for my enduro ride I thought about having a GasGas Trials bike also. I am 5' 11" 220lbs and ride the novice class. What model would suit a novice rider? I was thinking I read that the bigger 300 was easier to ride than the smaller ones? I had an older Scorpa years ago with the bigger Rotax engine and I liked the power of that engine compared to the Yamaha 250 engine that's in my bike now.

I have a beta 200 which is a rear pussy cat. I've heard that the gassers are more snappy on the power delivery. A little tougher to deal with in slick conditions but fun in the dry. I also ride the novice line. If I was going to get a gasser I would go with a 250. However you might want to check out the betas, excellent handling and super smooth power delivery.

Go with Skid. Don't underestimate the 200 Gasser. The 280 and 300 are monsters. I ride expert level and the 300 can get me into trouble. The 250 is a good compromise.

Ive got a Beta 250 REV3 & really enjoy the slightly less snappy power delivery it tends to produce, handling is very similar to the Gassa, attention to detail on the Beta I believe to be streets ahead of the others.
