Anyone have any info regarding Scorpa trials bikes? I know they are made in France and use Yamaha engines (since ~2000, Rotax B4 that), but how does the quality, reliability, function rate compared to gas gas? I've been to a few local trials events (Ohio & PA) and see allot of gas gas, some sherco, but very few Scorpa. Looking at the specs, the Scorpa seems pretty good. Thanks for any info.

I have a 2002 and it's the best bike I have ever owned.
Light but built rock solid. Excellent suspension and the rear tire gets great traction. The engine will grunt down low and snaps to life when you crack the throttle.
Only problems, swing arm nut came off and the billet footpegs are on the thin side and cracked froom smacking a rock.
Previous bikes, 74 yam ty250, 249 fantic, 84 ty 250, 309 fantic.

Oh and by the way, I'm a displaced buckeye. Lynhurst
