Entry Level Off-Road…

The amazing 300 430RS returns as well for 2017 with an updated graphics package.

Beta USA presents its new 2017 Offroad and Offroad Street Legal range

After a greatly successful 2016 season in both sales and racing, Beta returns in 2017 with their Enduro range that continues the forward progress of the brand through refinements in features and quality. The 2016 season has seen Beta achieve their first-ever overall victory in the World Enduro Championship in Portugal with racer Steve Holcombe along with many other victories from Johnny Aubert and Alex Salvini, both at the World and National level. Beta USA continues to push the racing scene with their factory team effort in National Enduro, GNCC, EnduroX, Hare & Hound, as well as National Trial.

Beta takes the information they have learned from their race teams as well as information from the everyday casual rider and combined the two to further enhance the riding experience. The 2017 RR models continue to offer an “easy to ride” philosophy while also providing the rider with a stable and distinct design along with the quality one expects from the brand.

The 2017 models, available in 2 stroke 250 and 300 cc and 350/390/430/500 cc. for 4 stroke, are a direct evolution of the 2016 version and retain their most successful features. The amazing 300 430RS returns as well for 2017 with an updated graphics package.

Exciting changes for 2017:
Beta has combined the features of the 2016 RR and RS models to create the all new RR-S which are all 50-state street legal and will now fill the segment of “Street Legal Off Road”
