According to the Italian Beta site the 200 does but not the 4.0. Of course it wont be a 'real' trials bike.
I cant grab the graphic but they say:
>>Innovative new concept: from off-roader to trials bike in a few minutes
Itís called the ALP, a classic among off-road two-wheelers, but all that is left of the previous model is the name. New design, new cycle parts, but above all a new concept behind it: it converts from an all-round off-road bike to a trials machine in a few minutes. The idea is as simple as it is brilliant. There are no accessories to buy, all you need is a screwdriver to remove the tank cover and seat, to get an entry level trials bike. One bike, two uses, and only a few minutes to make the conversion <<
And yes, they also show the long range trials kit for the trials bikes.
But as I say this is all just reading, havent seen any of this in real life
