Introducing the all-new 2021 Beta 300 RX! A new model from the Italian family motorcycle manufacturer that promises to bring “rideability” to the MX world.
The new 300 RX features an electric start 293.1cc two-stroke powerplant with a six-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 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.
Beta USA’s Tim Pilg said, “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 two-stroke can be. The sound and feel 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-inch 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.
Every 300 RX is delivered with a side stand that can be removed. The bike also comes with an MX stand as well.
