My son is getting to big for his 120, Iím looking to upgrade him. I wasnít sure about investing in a Evo or just looking for a 340 for him to get by for the next couple years, he is 8 yrs old, 4 1/2 feet tall, 75lbs

He should fit on the EVO. Take a run to a shop and have him sit on one of there’s a dealership close to you.
If there’s no EVO then try an INDY 550. The EVO showing have the same seat to running board height MAYBE a couple inches lower but I don’t think so.
My son went from a modded 120, drove a 340 maybe 3/4 times, didn’t like it so I got him an INDY 550.

At 8 yo and 4 1/2 feet, it is unlikely he is really big, strong, and heavy enough for a full size machine even an EVO. He would have more fun on an Elan, Yamaha Bravo, or a Freestyle 300 that he can easily handle instead of a bigger heavier machine that takes him where it wants to go.
