The perfect displacements....

The main objectives during development were to make the bike lighter, easier to control, and improve overall handling making it more enjoyable and easier to ride and, above all, more effective. The engine's center cases and internal components have been made lighter and redesigned to reduce the rotating mass, and the engine sizes have been reduced to make handling easier and minimize weight. Compared with the larger capacity of the previous model, the absolute power and torque figures remain unchanged thanks to a new camshaft profile and a new exhaust system; in addition, a better distribution of the torque curve has been obtained to get more out of the engines. With these new engines, the engineering team promises continued "Beta Magic" power delivery.

Since 1904 the Beta engineers have strived to provide innovative products that inspire, excite, and perform. 2015 is no different in that they continue to provide their customers with new models that continue to advance in both quality and features.

If you already own a Beta, we would like to say Thank You for your business! If you are looking into owning a Beta and are unsure of our history, simply ask a current Beta owner about the Beta experience. We are sure you will be impressed.

BRAND NEW FOR 2015 AND JUST RELEASED THIS WEEK! We haven't had a dirt bike up on the Cool Wall this year yet and I thought you all might like the change of pace a little, thus the completely new Beta 390RR (smallest of the newly designed bikes from Beta). :)

PS. On a side note I'm very sorry for the delay in getting this Cool Wall bike up for today, I poorly managed my time while I vacation to post this (it's 12:12am here posting it up for you) and I feel bad for all those waiting. :( Sorry about that and I'll try not to be so late on next weeks :D

They are extremely well known in the "Trials" area of biking, my guess is that Beta and Gas Gas are the tops in trials...

A couple of examples of trials biking for those unaware of it...

In the dirt bike area, I'm just not informed enough, but still gave a cool...

Not sure how to vote on this one, read the specs and like it until I got to the bottom (6 month warrantee). Price? Don't think I will vote just not sure.

Never did get a chance to dirt bike ride, but I really think it's cool for a company to "right-size" their engines and update then quite frequently, it really shows to me, they care more about their customers than milking out a return on a motorcycle model (and keeping it in production, unchanged for 20+ years)... lol.

It's a bit difficult to vote on a dirt bike, but I gave it a cool. Looks great and, as the write up says, has newer and lighter parts. That's about all I can go on!

Motorcycle Cool Wall discussion: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=49623
Total Motorcycle model page: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... -390RR.htm

Your Coolness Factor of the 2015 Beta 390RR is:

Awesome (3 points) 11% [ 1 ]
Cool (2 points) 89% [ 8 ]
Uncool (1 point) 0% [ 0 ]

NOTES: Not a lot of votes in the July 1st/4th long weekend for the Beta, but it did finish quite well and well deservedly so. With a new engine and a caring company, Beta is defiantly on the right track.
