The introduction of electronic oil injection headlines the updates to the 2016 Beta 300 RR two-stroke off-road machine, and MotoUSA tests the Italian marque's two-stroke platform out on the trails.
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.
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.
The Beta 450 RR has impressed in the past, but does the trail-shredder remain as adept after receiving updates for 2014? MotoUSA heads out to the Best in the Desert Nevada 200 Trail Ride to find out.
MotoUSA joined Beta Motorcycles and its dealers for a quick ride on several 2013 models. Read on to find out our quick impressions of the 2013 300 RR, 498 RR and 520 RS.
Italian Rally Racer and MotoUSA contributor Manuel Lucchese takes a spin on the 2013 Beta 450 RR in Northern Italy.
