2022 250/300 RR & Race Ed. 2-Stroke

Beta offers a boatload of off-road two-stroke models to choose via four different engine platforms: 125cc, 200cc, 250cc and 300cc. Of these, you have two variants to mull over—RR and Race Edition. The RRs are the base (or standard) models. The Race Editions are the same motorcycles but fitted with a handful of race-influenced upgrades, most notably higher-spec suspension components. The Race Editions are, of course, more expensive. Beta’s 300s feature an oil-injected 292cc two-stroke counter-balanced engine with a six-speed transmission and an electric start, with the option for a kickstarter at the time of purchase. One of the things that sets Beta’s 300 two-strokes apart from some of its competitors (namely KTM, Husqvarna and GasGas) is its fueling system—the Beta is carbureted, the others fuel injected. The Beta’s engine is cradled by steel frame and, in our case with the RR, suspended by Sachs components (versus the Race Edition’s KYB units). A 2.5-gallon gas tank, by way of a Keihin 36mm carb, fuels the fire, while an 18-inch rear wheel puts the ponies to the ground. The RR is fitted with a headlight and taillight and an enduro meter. Unfortunately, Beta forgot to install handguards at the factory. Seat height is 36.6 inches and dry weight is a claimed 228 pounds.
