Ask your Doctor if Beta 300 RX is right for you.

Can't wait to see Weimer on this at the Vet Nationals.

Nice. But the homepage link for the GasGas isn't working.

This and the TMs look super tempting. I've been thinking more and more about jumping to something "exotic" for my next 2 stroke.

Either way, it's good to see this commitment from a brand!

I've been running the track on my 300xc lately and am really liking it. This xc motor with a few mods has a damn good power spread for mx! Definitely interested to see what Weimer thinks about this Beta!

nothing like the sound of a crisp two stroke.

So Carlen Gardner who made 3 450 mains in Salt Lake City is giving the pre production bike a rip. He's from Paso Robles CA, also home of BetaUSA HQ. Sure wish they had a 4t..

The sound it makes is like a mix between an older KX and a 02-07 CR250. Maybe a bit flat on top.

Carlen Gardner and Bryson Gardner are both testing it.... give the 4 stroke a year or so

What we really need to see is how it stacks up against a YZ250, SX250, TC250 and a TM300. Because until some real world testing and shootouts come in it’s just a Beta 300 Enduro bike with KYB, 19 inch wheel and no lights.

We already know how it will stack up.

Ktm will win
Yz close second because of the infamous sss suspension
Tm and beta a distant tied for 3rd despite making more power, more updates, better brakes etc etc

Mxa won’t like the grips and vital won’t ride it more than an hour anyway.

The small brands never get a fair shake.
See vitals 450 off road shootout where tm makes MASSIVE more power over all other brands and gets last while also being the lightest.
And dirtbike did a 125cc shootout where the tm got last despite making more power than ktm and yz. Somehow a 2018 tm125mx isn’t better than a 2006 yz125 in mags eyes.

It’s incredible.

A little confused about the Beta making more power, having better brakes and more updates. Maybe test the KTM 300 XC and Husky TX?
