Two genre-bending dirt bikes, the 2015 Beta XTrainer and 2015 KTM Freeride, aren't exactly rivals but both are looking to appeal to the off-road rider that wants versatility.
Beta creates an entry-level trail bike for all skill levels with its new XTrainer, a two-stroke hybrid that blends enduro with a hint of trials.
MotoUSA declared the YZ250F the best MX bike for 2014, but Jay Clark Enterprises improves the YZ platform with this project bike review.
Beta made a lot of changes for the 2015 model year, so MotoUSA took two of the new machines, the 430 RR Race Edition and 480 RR, out for some heavy off-road riding.
Ride Engineering adds a host of goodies to improve the performance of the 2015 Suzuki RM-Z450, so we took the machine to LACR MX to see how the upgrades translate to the dirt.
