Fuel injection.. nice. Now I want one even more.

I don't think Beta will go FI this soon. There was a leak earlier in the year about Beta not offering Green or Red sticker 2 strokes in CA, which would force them into a closed course model. It appears to be a U.S. only model.

Nice! I'm thinking it's a cross country version with no headlights. Wonder if they will do a 250 version.

Tapping the brakes. FB thinking they are throwing Sachs CC forks and red plastics and graphics on the RR editions at a good price since the RE's are sold out and they have good inventory of RR's. We'll see soon. Was hoping for a limited edition like last year's Holcombe replica in a Moto Edition.

No dammit, but I keep telling my dealer to cut me a deal because I'm a Social distancer, err influencer.

We all have our vices and follow certain subjects and never click on others, glad you stopped by.

I think they can't fill all the kyb race orders, so offering the Sachs CC fork from the older race model as a mid level trim....I will see if my friend has heard anything official.

US only model for now. Talk is that Beta is testing the market for a more XC oriented model with shorter gear ratios and less wiring.

Interesting. So lighter, more agressive, etc.

I have been waiting for a blue seat on a bike, any bike, since like 1994.. The colors looks fantastic together. Glad someone finally took a leap to a colorful bike.

Such good bikes, loved mine.

Still no release on the new model.

Coronavirus special:

Custom order your bike (you can just change springs) and have it shipped ready to ride to your home.

The only thing I know for sure is it has the old CC fork and new colours. Not offering the model in Canada.

Not sure but my friend is the distributor for a country and those were his thoughts. Testing waters for more stripped down XC version and bridging the gap for buyers that wanted something more aggressive while they try to keep up with the KYB RE’s.

I saw a photo of the swingarm and part of the rear wheel. It had blue rims and it was a 19" for what it's worth.

Nothing new to be found, lots of guessing. MX model of a 300 2t appears certain, no details beyond that.

S*** I thought you worked for them to 😂 I used to be like that for certain product that I don't care to endorse anymore my kid always asked me if I was on the payroll.

I think a 3002t full on moto bike from any manufacture would be cool.

That is not for sure. There was initially confusion over a Beta USA offer of upgrades on remaining RR models. This is a ‘21 and a new model designation from the factory. MX for sure. Most likely not U.S. only since it comes from the factory.

Do they even exist in the states yet? My dealer says a month or two out. His aren't pre sold. I'd like to hear a review from someone other than Jake Weimer.

Not in the states yet. If a dealer didn't snag one it's too late now. unless they make another run. This was a small batch, not sure how small. Not sure, but I think some of the bike will be assembled by the distributor? BetaUSA is really stepping up their suspension and aftermarket. The 200's hit the ground and word is they are being snapped up fast too.

Hopefully this shows Beta that there is a market for this type of bike, even if most of them never get MX raced. They probably could have sold out on Race Editions if they had built more of those too. Covid fever.

Race editions have not been released yet. Ordering on them starts in a couple more weeks but expect them to go really fast. I have all the Beta's I ordered sold when they arrive. Also got signed up as a GasGas dealer. Still have not heard whats going on with MX and Off-Road product with them yet.

9/11/2020 11:36 AM

Have they released any info at all on the 300 race edition yet? I cant find anything about them yet. Im in between a 2021 300 race edition and husky TX 300
