More bling and performance…

Beta Race Editions are offered for the play rider or racer looking for more bling and performance. With their factory 48mm closed cartridge Marzocchi front fork to the molded-in-plastic graphics, these models are all about off road! (Quantities are limited)

The Beta 4 stroke RR models celebrate their tenth year in production with continued focus on domination!

The Beta four stroke line combines a light weight engine and chassis with a wide power delivery that is unmatched from any other bike builder.

The heart of the design is our “Made in Italy” 4-valve, electric start, super-efficient power plant. The chassis has been beefed up in all the right places and features a linkage suspension with a one-piece swingarm that you will want to mount on your wall as art.

Finished off with a sleek new front fender, nothing matches Beta’s four stroke performance.
