Beta jumps in where KTM left off.

Looks like Beta is after the market segment that KTM abandoned when they discontinued the 200XCW.

I was drooling over that bike the other day when I saw it Beta's Instagram. I am a big fan of 200's.

Nanci has the Beta 300 XTrainer, we are tight with our dealer so I'm going to see if we can get a test ride on one.

yes a moto model would be exciting to see. Vaclav Kovar races a Gas Gas 300 E model and has put it on the podium twice I believe and thats just with his own mods for moto

The AMA needs to fix this class mess they have created with the four strokes, out side of the vet classes where would you be able to race a 200 2T in MX?

I do believe its eligible in all but mini classes in the NESC, but that's just one organization not AMA sanctioned.
