Beta USA announces 300 RX motocrosser | News
Beta USA has revealed its own motocross bike based on the Beta 300 Factory edition, tuned to suit motocross conditions.
The new 300 RX features an electric start 293.1cc two-stroke power plant with a 6-speed transmission. The engine has been tuned exclusively for moto in every way. With an adjustable power-valve, riders can dial-in the amount of “hit” the engine provides.
The chassis includes a special frame built just for the 300 RX model, as well as longer-travel suspension. The KYB closed cartridge front fork and Sachs rear shock have internal settings that were developed by Beta USA’s in-house suspension department.
The bike is designed for all levels and ages. Check out the video below with 5-time GNCC champion and hall of famer Rodney Smith, Supercross champion Jake Weimer, and Hare & Hound champ Chance Fullerton showing off the potential of the new 300 RX model.
Beta USA’s Tim Pilg comments, “We wanted to build an MX bike that utilized many of the characteristics that our off-road race bikes have but with more power and stiffer suspension. The RX model shows how much fun a 2-stroke can be. The sound and feeling of the bike is unmatched and I hope our future owners of the model will appreciate the effort put into the bike. It is truly special.”
Other features of the RX include a lightweight lithium battery, 19″ rear wheel, push-button seat removal, Brembo hydraulic clutch, Nissin front and rear brakes with oversize rotors, plated Arrow pipe, composite rear sub-frame, and a V-Force reed assembly. The rear shock can be removed in less than 10 minutes without the need to unbolt the rear sub-frame.
This limited edition model has been produced by the American importer of Beta motorcycles and therefore is not available worldwide.
